Corvus corax


Otherwise known as the common Raven is one of my favorite birds.

There’s just something about them that fascinates me.

I like the way they hop about with their shiny black feathers and smart beady eyes always sizing you up.

But most of all, I love the sound they make, that shrill caw always brings a smile to my face and a sense of excitement.

Perhaps it’s nostalgia and nothing more.

Raven

I was playing around with the background and ended up making the purple resemble a wolf’s head.

I liked the effect so I ended up leaving it in. What do you think?

As an added treat and quite fitting to accompany this piece, I thought I’d also share the following video with you.

Christopher Walken reading: Edgar Allen Poe‘s “The Raven

Enjoy & G-night,
