Photo Share: All in the Body Language

These pics are in chronological order. Suffice it to say, the crows have been working on what-used-to-be-a-'possum for maybe two weeks. The snow plow tossed it up on the bank a few days ago, and I was kind of wondering how it got back into the road when this guy appeared. OK, but the 'possum has been ground into the ice so much that it's now frozen down, stopping the hawk from absconding with it entirely.
So this crow would really like his lunch ticket back.  What I thought was so funny was the way the crow mimics the hawk's posture to get closer, and ...  Lose.  Sigh.  Well, there's always tomorrow. 

Thank you Lynn C. for allowing me to share your photos on the blog! If anyone else would like to share a photograph of nature send it to bloubird@gmail.com and I'll put it on the Friday Photo posts.
