Heron sculpture installed at Cave Hill, finishing touches on Daphne

 The heron sculpture was installed at Cave Hill Cemetery in the Scattering Garden.
 Lee Squires (who designed the monument) and I hold the heron.
 Ron readies the granite plinth for the sculpture.  Holes have been drilled in the granite to accomodate the stainless steel pins of the heron sculpture.  Billy holds the heron until Ron applies the epoxy to the holes and is ready to set the sculpture in place.
 Soon the heron is attached and is looking over the lake.
 Some views of the heron - sillouetted against the sky..

 against the fall color...
 The sculpture at a distance with one of the butterflies which will grace the monument.
 A guard watches the heron for the rest of the day until the epoxy has cured.
 I have been putting the finishing touches on Daphne, cleaning up some areas with a die grinder...
 hand sanding limbs and leaves...
 defining leaves and smoothing areas.... it just seems to go on and on and on.....
