Hi JM,

It's a beautiful sculpture. It looks as if the trees and the sculpture has melted together..... Very interesting....

Have a great Sunday!

Best regards
Asta

Nice snap! I hope they put a bust of me in a park someday in my memory!

I didn't see it at first but when I clicked on the picture to enlarge it, there it was. Good eye, JM.

That would be scary if it was at your front door. I know, I had one at my front door once.

Eeuw, poor guy.

This is a really far out image! Terrific. I can't quite tell, but beneath it all.. it appears to be what looks like a nest under the pillar? I like the bit of history in those photos below as well-

Great shot. Some unpreserved things can look very good for photos despite their conservation status.

Not sure about the wasps' nest, but it looks like the guy in the photo has a bad case of acne.

Don't know about the`wasps, but it's a striking photo.

Oooh I'm not keen on wasps ... they repeat bite so an attack can be very alarming ... I am told Europeans bees can too ... our bees can only bite once then they are done.

Well... it's a beautiful shot of a marvellous statue at least!

What a great angle. I'm trying to imagine how you had to twist yourself to get this image.

In some circles, a WASP refers to a "White, Anglo-Saxon Protestant." I didn't see one here, I don't think. So, I looked for a wasp nest, but was afraid I'd get bitten, so backed off and decided to write this silly comment.

Have a great week, Jose!

Don't care about the wasps, the statue is beautiful and the setting gorgeous.
