Vira,this is a really neat image!

A nice effect drawing our attention to the raven by placing it in the spotlight (of fame). :)
As a complement to a "Beatles moment" I'm going to apply an "Edgar Allan Poe's moment" to this photo. Sorry to all english speakers, but I chose to use the translation that Fernando Pessoa (one of the greatest portuguese poets) made of "The Raven":

"Abri então a vidraça, e eis que, com muita negaça,
Entrou grave e nobre um Corvo dos bons tempos ancestrais.
Não fez nenhum cumprimento, não parou nenhum momento,
Mas com ar sereno e lento pousou sobre os meus umbrais,
Num alvo busto de Atena que há sobre os meus umbrais.
Foi, pousou, e nada mais" #5091216

"Blackbird singing in the dead of night
Take these broken wings and learn to fly
All your life
You were only waiting for this moment to arise
Blackbird fly..."

(JL and PM)
The bird didn't hear the song...
And it stayed there, maybe waiting to be photographed!
