Idiom: crow’s feet

Crow's feet

A crow

Crow’s feet are the lines or wrinkles which appear around the outer corner of a person’s eyes as they get older.

They’re also known as laughter lines 🙂


Examples of use:

1. News headline: FDA approves botox for treating crow’s feet.

2. Crow’s feet are one of the first signs of ageing on the face.

3. They’re not crow’s feet, they’re laughter lines. I’ve had a very happy life!

4. This new eye cream promises to remove crow’s feet.


Do you have crow’s feet? I do!

I don’t mind having them – I think they’re all part of a person’s character.

What do you think?
