Flutterbye Alights

Yesterday, we installed Bryan Tedrick's large red butterfly in a new location at Wildwood Farm.

It is designed to be viewed horizontally and vertically.  In its horizontal position, it balances on a skinny post, rotating and waving in the wind.  This feet of engineering is impressive but the piece really deserves to be viewed face on.

It is now hanging from a Valley Oak by its tail inside the nursery.  One can truly appreciate the wingspan and intricate detail on the wings.  While it is a heavy piece, it looks very delicate and peaceful.

Perhaps, it will take flight and move to a new perch soon!
