Day 81: What's in a Name?

    Newer Older

    As I mentioned previously, crows are my favorite birds and I was thinking about the term murder to describe a flock of them. There are many theories as to where this originated.

    I grabbed this from PBS.org:

    The term “murder of crows” mostly reflects a time when groupings of many animals had colorful and poetic names. Other fun examples of “group” names include: an ostentation of peacocks, a parliament of owls, a knot frogs, and a skulk of foxes.

      Love the color and development of this image... Perhaps it is my memory of Poe, but the bird adds for me a looming nature of something about to happen..

      It's easier to resist at the beginning than at the end.

      looks like the bird is moments from taking off, but you got the moment, very cool!
