This photo is an example of not being prepared. I left the house that day with my standard loadout, 8-16, 16-55, and 50-140. I was going up into a deep storm in the high mountains, no thoughts of trying to do wildlife photography. I left my 100-400 lens at home, as well as my wildlife monopod and gimbal. So, when I was coming back down from the stormy heights and I glanced this pair of Ravens [Mind you, for the fourth time that day] simply sitting on a dead tree, I grabbed my camera and began trying to compose the image. The Ravens were patient, though they were intimately aware I was pointing my camera at them, walking back and forth trying to get this framing just right... But I was framing against nothing, a white bank of heavy fog.... So where did that Moon come from? Well.... I cheated, and added it. Though, I have to admit I was fairly amused at how easy it is to add things into an image. This shot may eventually end up on my website, though not at this moment.
