Reminiscent of Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Raven,” I caught this wondrous photo of a large black bird (raven?) as it flew from a rather spooky looking tree. Perhaps he is on his way to visit the ill-fated and grief-stricken narrator of that dark poem.
Of course this was taken during the day and such things as messengers from beyond don’t exist, do they? Well, do they? Nah, didn’t think so.
And, by the way, for those interested in Poe’s “The Raven,” by far the best reading (by the incomparable James Earl Jones) and illustration of it I’ve seen thus far was actually part of a Simpson’s episode, one of the Treehouse of Horrors. Here is a link to the best one I could find on YouTube. Bart Simpson as The Raven – sublime. Enjoy!
