DURHAM, N.C. — When a crow lands on a book cover, it can be a real eye-opener.
In a rare example of its kind, The New York Times published a photo of a crow landing on a cover of one of its bestselling books, “The Lion King.”
The photo was taken by photographer Andrew Ziegler, who posted it on his Twitter account.
The caption reads, “Crow landed on my book cover at a book depository and it’s really, really creepy.”
“It’s just a really cool photo, and I just hope that you enjoy it as much as I do,” Zieglen wrote in the caption.
A number of readers tweeted reactions to the photo.
I like the way that bird lands,” tweeted one reader, while another tweeted, “Oh my god, it’s like that.”
“You guys are the best.
Just wanted to say thanks,” another wrote.
One person wrote that it made her smile.
And another said it was “creepy.”
Many commenters praised the photographer for his photo.
“What a great photo.
I love how the bird lands in the background,” one person wrote.
“I’d say it was a good example of what you should do when you want to draw attention to yourself,” another said.
A third wrote, “Great job on that.”
“If this was a bird that landed on a picture of me on a bus, I would be a little more careful with how I’m showing myself in the future,” one reader wrote.
