Hummingbird Crop Circle

This image of a giant hummingbird has appeared near Alton Barnes, Wiltshire, where birds haven't hummed for millennia. It's a bit like the one in Peru.

Why don't crop circle artists ever win the Turner Prize? Surely anonymity and a "practice" outside the art market are a valid form of artistic expression? Crop circles are a genre, couldn't they be an art movement? You could easily fill a gallery with photos and preliminary sketches. Or throw a party in a wheatfield to launch your latest work. All life forms invited.
