The Title: Everyone Needs a Hobby.

This year i wanted to keep trying things i had not carved before, for this contest it was to be a horse.

I was thinking perhaps a political things about gas guzzlers, perhaps the grim reaper on a horse using his sythe to 'hook' a hummer. Then Susan's granddaughter Tia joked about it being a tiny hummer and using a butterfly net to catch it, and from there i went to it just being the grim reaper as a lepidopterist.
