Quoth the raven: Don't disturb! :)
Sorry for the bad shot, the two where far away uphill taking no interest into the overlook, but starting some interesting activities themselves. / Sprach der Rabe: Bitte nicht stoeren! :)
Entschuldigung, das ist nicht so scharf, aber die Voegel hielten sich weit vom Aussichtsplatz am Hang auf, dann zeigten sie plotzlich recht interessantes Verhalten.

Jose Luis Sánchez Nielfa, Ron Hanko have particularly liked this photo

Well, sometimes you take what you can get, Sonja. And it is nice to see a raven and you got to photograph one, which is more than I can say, so... :)

It is really not nice of him he sat in a discrete way it looks like just one raven here. But all shots with two recogizable ravens do not show the deed itself but just some rituals around it.
The more popular mountain overlooks on Fuerteventura are usually great for close up raven encounters, but ravens making new ravens a bit removed is even better.....

LOL-- it really looks like one bird, but two it is. They chased each other flying so close they touched and croaked a lot at it, then one sat down in a slight depression like brooding groundbreeder. The other sat next to it shoulder to shoulder and then they did some coordinated nodding and more croaking. Finally the one bird slipped onto the other so far in front the head got hidden fully and the lower bird looked like a tail extension of the upper. A few seconds later they where done.
And there I thought Great Ravens in their supposed intelligence would do something sophisticated like bring flowers to their lady :D
