Greg, is it a baloon?
Hi Lesna_T and thanks for coming back to give things a better look.
It is a piece of art, made of metal sheets shaped into a sphere. If you look at the expanded view you can see the very fine wires that hold the piece in place.
The other thing to note, which is also only just visible in the expanded shot, is the bird's nest (probably that of a magpie) in the bottom of the sphere.
