The Raven | Graphite on paper

Death makes angels of us all

and gives us wings

where we had shoulders

smooth as raven´s claws

Crested Pigeon courtship - Ocyphaps lophotes

The Crested Pigeon, Ocyphaps lophotes (Columbiformes - Columbidae) is a relatively large, stocky pigeon with a highly distinctive appearance. As its name suggests, this species is easily recognized by its long, black, pointed crest, which is usually held erect. Ocyphaps lophotes is a species endemic to Australia.

During the breeding season, the male crested pigeon performs a display flight and courts the female with a ‘bowing’ display as seen in the photo.
