Weekly Theme 12

by Leslie D October. 29, 2016 3580 views

Another week, another theme! This week we're getting wild with animal photography! Want to join in? It's easy.... click HERE to learn more. See what others have shared for this theme HERE.

This buck made for a nice camera capture, but truth be known, I prefer my deer as venison...in the freezer. The herd is managed well here, with an open season respected by hunters.


A nuisance to some, and just plain cute to others, the Chipmunk never fails to entertain. To hear one skittering through the woods, you might think something much larger is approaching.


A feeder hangs from my clothesline all winter. Here a Goldfinch balances, and patiently waits his turn.


What would a wildlife post be without my Grand dog, Winnie? She's part Great Dane & Black Lab, and full of energy!

These are fantastic, Leslie. Especially like the Winnie. Excellent shot. I sure hope the deer photo was from your archives Too early for that much snow. PS, added one of your caption suggestions to "IF LOOKS COULD KILL"

Wow, Leslie! The snow covered dog photo is PERFECT. Winnie is very endearing :) I love all these shots, you've selected a nice variety--thanks for sharing these with us.

Thank you so much, Tiffany...and thank you for the favorites!
Winnie is very hard to shoot ~ she's a lens-licker! I always get down on her level, and she thinks it's play time.

These are really great photos, Keryl!
I especially loved the deer against the sunset in #1.
The snow covered dog in #4 is amazing too, I love the details here.

Oh Jay, thank you so much ~ you are so kind.
Some days, I long to live in the city. Other days, I'm perfectly content here in the country.
Such a conundrum....

Jay Boggess Replied to Leslie D 4 years, 9 months ago

Does it have to be an either/or choice???? How about a little of both. I love the peace & quiet of my little community, but when I feel a little frisky, I just get on the ferry & an hour later I'm in the center of Victoria, British Columbia! Too much of anything eventually starts to cloy, even if it's wonderful.....Variety is the spice of life, for me....

Until I retire, I'm obligated to stay close to home. For now, I'll just keep wandering around on little day trips. I've begun to realize this monster house is too much for me, and keeping up with it has become a chore. This season, between fall & winter, is difficult. It's like the "Un-Season", and it makes me restless.

I understand! Just before retiring, I lived in the panhandle of Texas, surrounded by industrial cotton farming, with no mountains, ocean or trees any where near....In Texas I had a 5-acre place with a pretty big house, so, again, I can relate....My little 1200 sq. ft. place, here in Port Angeles, with postage stamp sized yard, is just perfect for my old bones....I love the Fall & the Spring, because I love times of dramatic change.....
Cheers!
