That is a beautiful wood carving done from a tree. Whoever did it was very talented.

Michael said...

All he needs now are some wooden fish.

What a beautiful carving! Fantastic work.

Quilldancer said...

The carving is great but I really love the park. Is there ice skating here when the pond is frozen?

judi said...

stately heron, it's a rare breed.

Judy said...

That is a wonderful heron, although his beak kind of reminds me of a flamingo...
You ask about the macro lens - no, I do not have one, just the Nikon Coolpix. I would love to have a more advanced camera, but for now, this is what I have. Sometimes it does what I want, and sometimes it doesn't.

The talent of some people never ceases to wow me. How cool!

George said...

What an interesting carving. That park looks very inviting.

Ebie said...

Its a great piece of artwork. But he looks so lonesome, and if he could speak, he would rather be in the lake.
Great angles.

Tom said...

I do like coming across stuff like this....

De Lly Dilettante said...

Hey cool. Was that part of that tree?

Rose said...

I saw the title and thought it was going to be a real one...this is really a nice carving...not disappointed that it wasn't real now.

wonderful statue and the flowers on this page are so lovely to see!

Carolyn Ford said...

I wonder how that wood stands up to the freezing temperatures of your area...but...what a great heron it is! I am guessing that is a very nice park...

Pietro said...

Wonderful photo for Watery Wednesday. That's a very kewl wooden carving of the heron! Kind of reminds me of the metal sculptures of pelicans around here. Sorry to be so late to visit ... hope all's well with you and yours.
