Nice collection.


I especially enjoyed the sculptures

Ah, I see there is one that really should be there missing, and other candidates. The angel pointing up is atop a grave in huge, beautiful Greenwood Cemetery. A common trope, angel pointing to Heaven, but almost all the pointing fingers have weathered or broken off, so there are all these angels apparently shaking their fists at Heaven. 😁 The dancers are in the columbarium there. It took lots of post to make them stand out, but I think it looks pretty natural.

and the dragonfly.

The light in the eyes makes it, I think.

Dragonfly tip, many of them return to the same place, in the same pose, over and over again. They are "hawking" tiny insects, and have chosen a good vantage point. (Hummingbirds and some raptors do the same.) So prefocusing on the spot just left and waiting a few moments will often result in a good shot.

Other time, species situations, they just don't stop.

Flying Dragon Moose

What if the Hokey Pokey *IS* what it's all about?
