Raven


It flew past me, real close, form behind. Sounding its characteristic jarring sound right over my head. Even if I almost filled my pants with fear I managed to get this shot.

The large black Raven (Corvus corax) is a mythical bird. It has a very central role in the Vikings mythology. The god Odin (Oden) sends his two ravens Hugin and Munin out in the worlds, both gods (Asgard) and mans (midgard), to gather information for him. It is not only considered holy but also very intelligent. Krax, ha de gött!
