SJ - Carousel @ Arena Green (Detail Pix)

I visited the Children's Carousel in Guadalupe River Park yesterday (See my previous post, here) and shot some photos of the really cool carousel animals. Aside from sporting animals chosen for local reasons, the animals are downright gorgeous, and I wanted to show you the detail decorations.


The detail on the Grey Wolf shows a Red Fox.

The Hummingbird was really quite ornate. Sadly, I failed to get a good shot of the tiny hummingbird nest/fledgling situated below the saddle and above the tail. The two side panels are quite nice, and have rhinestone jewels which dazzled the kids. 

Two panels that adorned the zebra.

This Panel decorates the side of the Ostrich's saddle.
