This bottom photo is Ted upon the shop/garage. He built this cupola two weeks ago and finally got the chance to put it on the roof. The weather vane is a horse in a trot stance. We had a cupola on the garage in town and had a copper roof on it. It had a chicken vane . We drove by to look at it just yesterday. The copper is getting a nice patina on it. Wish we had brought that out here to the farm.
I will have to work with my new camera. I am not getting any close up shots. Missed a great chance earlier of a flock of whooping cranes in the field across the road. Then I came in and went back out and they flew almost over my head and the camera was in the house....why? One of those Homer Simpson moments...doh !!
