INSTINCT: Raven Flight

Raven Flight, by Mary Stebbins Taitt. For Illustration Friday's current challenge, Instinct. Dedicated to Bernd Heinrich. I decided to do some more work on this, so here is the new version, above. Yesterday's version below.

I am reading his book, Mind of the Raven. He says ravens are very
intelligent and they do many things that are learned, inventive, creative. However, flying must still be an instinct for them.

This is a digital painting created on photoshop with my tablet and my tablet pen. I did not use any filters or "effects," but just "painted" it with the tablet pen. This is utterly brand new today. Click image to view larger. Also for creative Every Day (CED). I've been writing LOTS of poems.
