Wild Life

The Chinese company Huawei that makes the P20 Pro phone has a promotion for their latest product.
The phone comes with a double-lens Leica camera, and surveys show that P20 users are interested in
photographing wildlife with their phone/camera. So they have positioned giant raven statues around the country that are over 8 feet tall. One is of course near the Tower of London...legend has it that if the 6 ravens that live in the tower all leave, the kingdom will fall. Because of that, they only made 5 ravens just in case to keep the Crown safe.
