Orléans hotel


There is so much going on in this photo, you'll really need to see it as large as possible*.  This is just over the entrance to a very fancy hotel in Orléans (upstream on the Loire from Amboise).  I'll leave it to you find all the "critters" lurking in and around it.

  1. For sure many details to discover the most strange to me is this dragonfly??? It seems to be a beautiful building and we will see what the other bloggers discover. I am still in the surgery intensive unit in a complete aseptic environment. No open windows, but a very blue sky today and some sparrows on the windowsill. I wish you a nice photographer week end.

    1. It could be either a dragonfly or maybe a wasp ? Anyway it's almost lost in all of the embellishments of this entrance. Yes, it was another beautiful day with blue skies. Looks like there are more to come. But don't worry, all the nice days won't be used up before you return home! Bon weekend, Tess.

    1. Yes, it looks like that little guy has to hold up that entire canopy... and he doesn't look too happy about that either.

    1. It's a bit busy. If this were a puzzle I wouldn't want to try to put it together.
