Thanks Eric. It's a nice idea that it's some sort of scarecrow, and maybe it works too! Often thatchers would incorporate an animal in their design and it became their trademark; sort of early advertising I guess. In this case though, the house in the village of Foxton, Cambridgeshire, so it's likely to be a reference to the location I would think.

Merced, CA - United States

Wonderful shot of this old house!! I am thinking the fox is there to keep birds away or is it just there for decoration?

West Chester, PA - United States

Thank you I'ina, this is our neighbour's house in the UK. Still lots of thatching there.

Olympia, WA - United States

I remember seeing this type of thatchery decoration. Lovely shot.

West Chester, PA - United States

Thank you Shirlye and John. Foxton is full of old buildings and yes, thatching is very much alive, in fact is a requirement for these Grade I and Grade II listed buildings!

Birmingham, We - United Kingdom

Well done Richard, brought a smile to my face.

Nucla, CO - United States

The archetypal country cottage, beautifully captured, the fox showing the thatcher's artistry. (I hear that thatching, feared to be a lost art, is still alive and kicking in the UK).
