Farm Pond/ Watery Wednesday


Hey, guys! The ice is off the pond. Let's swim!

Doesn't this metal sculpture look like it's thinking about jumping in?  It was raining slightly, but the bird didn't seem to care.

My, My what a big heron you have found!!!! I wish they all stood that still.

Jacob said...

This is the largest heron I've seen! It looks like it's going to attack that big bass lurking at the side of the pond.

It also looks like your snow is gone and spring is apringing!

George said...

I'm afraid the water is still a little too chilly for me, but that guy certainly looks ready to go. Great capture.

see you there! said...

No ice? Are you sure you took this picture in Canada? LOL!

When I first saw this I actually said out loud ;whoa, that's a huge Heron' and then of course I see it isn't real. It is kinda neat though. Doesn't it look strange to see no snow? Wonderful!! MB

at first I thought it was real--and then I thought, no it's holding its neck all funny. great picture . . .

He does indeed! I wish I had the talent to make something like that. He's very regal there!

Craver Vii said...

(gasp) I bet I could get real close for a bird photo!

Paulie said...

One more step and its in! Looks just like my heron from awhile back except mine was real and the water was a bit further away.

I also left a comment on the post below.

Another death by drowning. So sad.

It's time to dive in for a little bit, I suspect the water is still icy cold.

Cezar and Léia said...

It really does, as if it had been sorely missing its watery pond... :) Incredible catch with your police officers in the previous one...
God bless you!

Very interesting sculpture. The ice may have melted but I fear the water may just be a bit chilly for a dip.

KaHolly said...

Great shot!! Had me fooled there for a minute! ~karen

Cathy said...

Now thats a very realistic looking statue - and some still very cold looking water. No wonder its having to think about going in lol

Judy said...

Someone has a wonderful sense of humour! I love the heron! It adds some interest to an otherwise ordinary pond! Is that a left-over sunflower beside the heron?

judi said...

nice one! are those cannon ball holders in the background??? :)

Johnny Nutcase said...

ohh! i like it a lot, if i had a place to put it, wouldn't mind having it, very cool!

Becky and Gary said...

That Heron looks right at home. Great shot EG.
Rain and fog almost all day here, but at least it isn't that white stuff.

Hilda said...

So, did you jump in with him? :)

luna miranda said...

Maria said...

Wow,what a heron:)
Lovley shot!

Kathy said...

After the heron what caught my eye were the trees. They look like giants in gnomeland.

Dagrun said...

Imagine having legs like that.

An excellent and funny shot! A real close up.

Hootin' Anni said...

At first I thought it was real...then realized it's way too tall! Fabulous photo.

STOP! IN THE NAME OF LOVE... is my Wednesday entry!! do come by if you can, I'd love to have your company today.

Ann said...

what a clever sculptor, he made it so real that I had to look carefully.

My teaching space is called Kotuku which is Heron in Maori.

Denise said...

This is a lovely photo, and I like the heron sculpture, almost looks real at a quick glance.
