Scrap Art Creatures

It's a residential home with scrap art creatures in front yard. I wanted to get closer to get a photo of the black widow, birds and elephants but I wanted to be respectful. I'm sure if I knocked on the door they would not have minded.

Scrap Art Creatures

These are on a private residence, however when I went by the owner of the property was outside, and gave permission to take pictures. He explained these creations we're done by her father-in-law, who is now passed away. He was an old farmer with too much time on his hands, obviously.

Giant Insects

Giant insects are all in the front of the residence. Also, there are a couple of buzzards and elephants on the sides of the property.
