Hello Chris,
I see that I'm expected to solve this riddle. All right. The statue is called Sjöguden (Sea god) and was made by famous sculptor Carl Milles (1875-1955) in 1913. It has been in this place since 1930. The sea god is seen holding a mermaid on his lap. Milles is mainly famous for large projects, such as several fountains in Stockholm, Göteborg and other cities. His home on the island of Lidingö is now one of the most popular museums in the Stockholm area. The Art Nouveau building in the background housing the locally legendary German "Bierstube" Zum Franziskaner was built in 1910.
It's a nice composition with lovely warm light.
Best regards,
PS I didn't know all this but it was an easy search on the webb to find out (if you read Swedish).

Default To macjake: Identification of birds

Hello, Craig!

It's really not easy, but when I came back from the Pantanal last year, after taking a lot of photos of birds, I bought a book for identifying the species, and besides I created an account in a community of birdwatchers of Brazil ( When I can't recognize the species, I post a photo there and the more experienced users help me with the identification.
