I must admit that I have posted pictures from time to time that were not taken in Tallahassee, but this one was taken farther away than any I have ever posted before. This handsome fellow posing for me is one of the ravens residing at the Tower of London and I took this picture earlier this summer. Bird lover that I am, I spent more time sitting on a bench watching the ravens than I did looking at the Crown Jewels, especially since they wouldn't let you take pictures of the jewels. Legend has it that six ravens must guard the Tower at all times, or the monarchy will fall. To learn more about these pampered birds, visit here. It also happened to be a warm sunny day in London, so the sky was looking pretty good too. Linking to SkyWatch Friday.
