What an amazing piece of sculpture! An owl in an oak tree for O day...it doesn't get much better than that. You are a winner in my opinion.

Nice picture! In Pickering we are lucky enough to have a wood carver do his work on dead portions of live trees. See my post here.

That's absolutely gorgeous. I really thought in the thumbnail that it was a real owl.

Thanks everyone for you visit and comments.
I must admit, when I first drove past this I was almost fooled, too!

He has many more such carvings in ORangeville and I must get up there to see and photograph them!
