Terrific Beverly! Looks like they're right there, sneaking thru the forest!

What a wonderfully conceived statue!
Beverly Andrighetti: There are many fine statues throughout Central Park, Chris. Only wish I had had the time to photograph them all.
Excellent shot with those leaves just emerging.
Beverly Andrighetti: This was around Easter, Mary, and all the trees in the city were in bud and many were blooming. It was a delightful sight for winter weary eyes.
Great with the spring backdrop
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you, Martin. It's one of the best times of the year to visit NYC.
An excellent composition Bev. The statue is fantastic in the perfect setting.
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, Janet, they couldn't have placed it in a better place. Thanks so much.
A really well composed shot. Feels as if we are with the hunter. I must admit at first glance I thought it was of the Roman huntress Diana who is often depicted with a dog, perhaps that also influenced the artist.
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, John, scholars have speculated that he was indeed influenced by other classical works when he sculptured the Indian Hunter.
love this contrast, budding trees and that amazing light green, it's spring in South Africa so we are seeing that now.
Beverly Andrighetti: Lucky you, Rory. Colder temperatures and eventual snow is what we have in store for us in the coming months.
I like the statue as well as your presentation Beverly.
Beverly Andrighetti: Much appreciated, Brian.

A famous name indeed Beverly. I like the way you have them walking along the frame of your photograph.
Beverly Andrighetti: When I cropped off the bottom part of the statue, Chad, they appeared to be walking along the path and out of the frame. It was astonishing.
This is a terrific presentation Beverly... the buds, the crop... so good!
Beverly Andrighetti: It was a lovely time to visit NYC, Jacquelyn. Thank you very much.
