Metallic Doppelganger

I had to do a double-take at this Heron as I walked past. It stood completely still next to a small garden pond, with no indication of movement even though I was barely three feet away, and I then quickly realised it was an ingenious garden sculpture of the real wading bird; a metallic Doppelganger to keep the real Herons’ away from the fish!
