Raven

All month long at  the Sunday Postcard Art  challenge Halloween is being celebrated and this week "Ravens" are the theme.  Couldn't pass this one up ....ravens are one of my favorite birds; dark and ominous as they are depicted in literature and myth yet highly intelligent with a complex social structure and curious by nature. I worked for quite a few years as a Raptor handler for a wildlife rehab and education center and worked with Ravens on the glove as well. They never ceased to amaze me!

  2. I often-ed wondered why the ravens got this reputation...I'm sure it's a human problem not theirs. I love all wild birds ... none should be caged...what a thing to do to a creature that can fly. Love this piece and thanks for sharing.

    Happiness always,
