When I’m the passenger in a car, I am constantly looking at the passing trees for signs of life. Whether it be something common like a crow or a bird of prey perched on a branch, I love trying to find anything. It’s rare that I get to do this AND have the camera handy, but the stars aligned for a change.

I couldn’t have asked for a better picture with a cloudy backdrop. From the time I got out of the car with the camera to looking at the photo, only seconds had passed.
