I like to watch birds too but they are too fast for me. To make a dragonfly out of plants is very creative indeed. Very inspiring!

Robins are such sociable creatures. One of my favorite kinds of bird. All of your pictures of flying things this time are wonderful.

Autumn Belle, they are very fast. I've been know to chase birds around the garden :) Yes, that sculpture I though was pretty unique.

Thanks Willie

Rainfield, yes, you are correct and so wise :)

Nice picture of your first bee! The plant sculpture looks like either a helicopter or a giant bee.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Carmen, It was fun even in the gray and mist.

Karen, I never thought of that but it does look like a helicopter :D
