Pagan Eye: Crow on the Cliffs in Springtime


I went for a walk along the clifftops in East Sussex with my husband over the weekend. The sky was blue and the sun was shining. We saw bunnies hopping about on the chalk downs - and this crow who begged food from us when we stopped to have a picnic lunch.

Although some people consider crows to be omens of bad luck, I prefer to think of them as suitable companions for a witch. They are highly intelligent and quite cunning. To me they symbolise magic and mystery, although they are traditionally seen as tricksters. This crow certainly tricked me out of half a sandwich!

My Pagan Eye posts show photos that I find interesting - seasonal images, pagan sites, events, or just pretty pictures. If you want to send me a photo for a Pagan Eye post, please email it to badwitch1234@gmail.com. Let me know what the photo shows and whether you want your name mentioned or not. For copyright reasons, the photo must be one you have taken yourself.
