Whimisical Gargoyles

From the Washington Post article on Salamanca:

We thought we’d been tricked. After studying the leaves and vines carved around the west door of Salamanca’s New Cathedral for 10 minutes, we still couldn’t locate the astronaut, the monkey with an ice cream cone or the stork carrying a branch in its beak. We decided that the purported carvings were urban legends, most likely concocted as a joke on gullible tourists.

Gargoyles are some of my favorite things to photograph, so you can bet I’ll be looking for these when we are in Salamanca in a few months.
