I had to drive into town today, and as I left the roundabout and traveled toward Sopron, I happened to pass a massive flock of crows plundering an expansive field of sunflowers.
On the surface there was nothing exceptional about this scene, but the sight of over a hundred of the black corvids swooping in on the field, perching atop the withering sunflowers, and pecking away at the seeds within made quite an impression on me.
I wanted to stop to take a photo, but I didn't have the time to turn around and go back. Thus, the best I can do here is offer two similar images I managed to find on the internet.
Crows are corvids and both have been a subject of symbolism and discussion within my blogging circle, so this probably has something to do the impression factor of seeing a flock of crows ravage a sunflower field.
I'm not the most adept when it comes to symbol interpretation, but the scene certainly felt symbolic.
Though I found the scene striking, I did not perceive anything particularly negative about it, so I would not say the crows in the sunflower field were necessarily an omen. On the contrary, they could symbolize the approach of something positive.
Time will tell . . .
