During the winter of 2017, after an ice storm on the Acadian Peninsula, I started taking pictures of the crows who lived in my neighbourhood. Frozen in their movements, these black birds on a background of white snow showed a surprising poetry.  The spectacular gestures of these crows, captured in minute detail, shows the grace of these birds, unjustly called “birds of ill omen”. Their intelligence enabled them to survive millions of years and to be present almost everywhere on earth. They are called “feathered Einstein of creation.”
