[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Corvus cornix is only occasionally found in northern England but common in Scotland (especially above the lowland belt). Our common crow is the all black Cornus corone. Maybe it is memory that plays me false but I had not noted the pinkish cast to the grey feathers before and consequently took some pix of these bold scavengers in the centre of Tromso. Not content with disputing the grassy areas with the gulls they hopped into and across the roads and even amongst the feet of pedestrians! Determined indeed.
Severe cropping, levels adjusted somewhat, resize and sharpen in PSE.

Very well done. First time i see a crow so "fancy-dress" like you wrote. Good cropping for a descriptive note. Not too much sharpen. Bravo!
It seems to say: "Am I cute like this?"
