Snapshot Saturday~March 23

It’s time for Snapshot Saturday.  This is the wonderful link up started by Alyce at At Home With Book.  Everyone comes up with wonderful and interesting photos and I think I’ve got something interesting today.

During my trip to Florida, we visited Boyd Hill Nature Preserve in St. Petersburg.  It was an interesting trip in many ways, not the least of which was the 84-year-old tram driver who nearly tipped us over.  But she was delightful and full of info about the Preserve.

One of the strangest and most unique things was a statue that we came upon.

Unfortunately, I don’t know who the artist is.  I’m also not sure what the materials are, except that it does look like car bumpers and gears.  Oh, yes…it’s an armadillo.  I thought it was so cool and we stayed there for about 10 minutes inspecting it and taking photos.  It was fascinating!

That’s it for me for Snapshot Saturday.  Be sure to check out the other photographers at At Home With Books.  We all love when you visit and leave comments.

Happy Snapshot Saturday!!

  10. I love sculptures made out of recycled materials too, they always look so great, this one is very impressive just by the size alone. And I have a bit of an armadillo fascination.

    • Thanks, Louise, I’m fascinated by armadillos too! I should have had someone stand next to it to show scale, but believe me, it was head and shoulders above me and I’m 5′ 8″ so this guy is pretty big!
