Looks Like

Ever notice that things in nature can often resemble something else?

Like this tree branch, for example.

Looks like a shore bird at Chincoteague National Wildlife Refuge

Maybe a Great Blue Heron . . .

or a Great Egret . . .

Yes, they do look similar all right. :) Very nice bird images. :)

I'm going with the Great Blue Heron. Nice shot.

I vote for the Heron. The similarities are there. Good photos and clever post.

Elaine said...

Oh, yeah, but one who hasn't been very successful at fishing.

Anvilcloud said...

Yes I have, and I think I have posted it too. :)

The twists and turns with trees offer a good shot sometimes and catch my eye often.

Hello everyone, thanks for the comments. Nature sure does provide some interesting comparisons. It looks like the blue heron won this one, and I have to agree that's the one I voted for as well. We were biking in the refuge when I spotted this tree branch, right after spotting the heron. Maybe next time, one will look like a great egret :-)

Yes I did have fun with this post - glad everyone enjoyed it too!

Good morning Beatrice,

Thanks for stopping my photo blog the other day. Just like I found a man's face in an autumn leaf, you found a piece of wood that looks like a bird. That is awesome! God truly has a sense of humor! Talk to you soon.

Blessings,
Judy

I often see things in wood. I have a piece of driftwood on the side of my house that could be a whale. Like you, I wrote a blog about it once. For your limb I think I'd have to take the head of the blue heron and the neck of the egret to get a match.

Hi Jud, welcome to our blog and thanks for the comment. You are certainly right in saying that God has a sense of humor, after all he created us and I suspect we give him many laughs (and sorrows too). I enjoyed your blog and plan to revisit.

Ginnie, your "vote" for the heron makes it just about unanimous - myself included. There are many things that can be "seen" in wood, stone, leaves, etc. The key is to looking all around.

My first look at the limb, I thought it looked like a snake until I saw your bird photos.

Beatrice P. Boyd said...

Hey Ree without the heron and egret photos as comparison, that limb does resemle a snake, but I did't have any snake pics - thank goodness.
