Didn't know about that "murder"! But the crows flocked on the tree outside our balcony in Shimla, and their constant ruckus used to drive my Dad crazy...to the extent that he used to take out the air gun to shoot them! :) It was funny listening to my Mom yelling at him, "Sawere sawere jeev hatya, koi path pooja hi kar lo!"

This is truly an awesome shot. Makes me feel like going out and clicking photographs as well. The Rocky Mountains here are gorgeous (but I broke the LCD screen on my camera in Dec..kicks to self).

jas : hahhaha! can imagine ur dad screamin murder at the murder of crows!!!! (my desperate attempts at what they call pun!!!!!)
donno abt u but crows remind me of that scene in Hitchcock's "Birds" where the horror builds up with crows gathering outside the school!!!!!!!

... and it can't speak. Nature is unfair... Humans too sometimes are like that, may be nature's way of letting know how it feels to be mute.

Awesome!! The pic looks calm and serene. Have u'll seen the turmoil and ruckus created by crows when one of them dies.... Man it's scary!! Yes, "Birds" relate to it.

To my surprise I found that the 'traffic light' image I downloaded to one of our lab machine (from your blog), being put up as wallpaper by two other students on their lab computers. The images you shot are getting famous:-)
