"Scare Crow!"

I took this unsettling shot in Cornwall recently. I have passed by this cottage many times and was taken aback to find the chilling site of a dead crow hanging menacingly above the gate. I guess it's one way to frighten the crows away if they're causing a nuisance. The view looking up is spookily reminiscent of the gallows. It seems an appropriate shot to show you, the night before Halloween!


  1. Poor crow, it's a well done photo though and perfect for this time of year! Hope it goes to the Summerlands and is at peace xx

  2. Thanks for your comment Hekateo.
    We will never know how the crow came to it's end.

  3. It may have died of natural causes, who will ever know!

    CarrieEllen, thank you for lovely comments about my Art x
