Russell Jeanes, for the beautiful video for Russell Jeane's equally beautiful song, Simple Jayne (with morning blackbirds).
Russ describes the video as a "stop-motion music film, set in a mysterious English wood, about the hidden magic in nature". It's just stunning, and I am so happy that my lapwing was part of this lovely project. Watch the video for Simple Jayne on Vimeo.

Knitted raven, with raised wings - first time I've ever knitted a bird in this position. The knitting is pretty simple but the making up needs a little patience as you need to work with wire in the wings, legs and tail to create a framework to hold the bird up.
Here he is "perched upon a bust of Pallas just above my chamber door" as in the Edgar Allan Poe poem. I think once pumpkin season is here, I will take some pumpkin - perching photos too.
