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 . . .
What do you think?
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.
Oh, yeah, but one who hasn't been very successful at fishing.
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.
Hi Flolks.. Well it is a close race but I'm going with the Egret!! : }I see thing like that all the time ...drives some of my friends nuts!! lol
´Nature is funny that way :-)It really looks like a heron :-)Have a great day!Christer.
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.
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.
