Scavenger Hunt/ Critters

 1. Two: One mallard plus one reflection equals two mallards, right?

This week I'm combining Critters with a Scavenger Hunt because it works...sort of.

2. Animal: painted turtle

These  guys are interesting even when they are doing nothing more than sitting on a log!

3. Handwriting: My handwriting

I couldn't get any critters to write anything for me this week! Sheesh!!

4. Frozen

Not exactly "frozen" but it sure didn't appear to move a muscle while I was taking its photo.

5. Nap time

I don't think the mallard knew I was there...or even cared.  Zzzzzz.

1+1 is never more than 2, for this time.

Am I right?

Wonderful collection of critters. The mallard, turtles and the GB heron are all beautiful. Love the Mallard reflection shot. Thank you for sharing your post with my critter party.. Have a happy weekend!

Revrunner said...

Heron's really do have the most remarkable ability to be still.

The mallard's more interested in nap time!

Oh my goodness the photos are popping out of my screen the colours are so vivid and beautiful!

You have a gorgeous handwriting!

Anvilcloud said...

Your handwriting is pretty good. Mine was never of this quality and has really deteriorated in the computer era.

Sandra said...

these fit both meme's perfectly. they are all beautiful.. your handwriting makes me green with envy... i don't dare put mine up on my blog... everyone might think i should be a doctor.. LOL

TexWisGirl said...

these are great! and you have beautiful handwriting. mine LOOKS like an animal wrote it. :)

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Turtles are always great. Your handwriting made me think about the fact that cursive writing is no longer taught in some school districts. Not only that, but I've read of instances where some young people working at stores were unable to read cursive when handed a note written in long hand. I never thought such a day would be.

Ela said...

So lovely creatures and wonderful photos !
Have a great weekend :)

Gunilla Bäck said...

Pix Under the Oaks said...

Love the reflections and the colors are beautiful. I get a kick out of turtles sitting on logs... guess it doesn't take much to make me happy! I think it's their little feet.

Taken For Granted said...

If you want to get your critters to write something try photographing a secretary bird.

Linda W. said...

Nice reflections and wildlife shots!

A Quiet Corner said...

Frozen is AWESOME...:)JP

Kathy said...

My favorite in this group is the mallard and her reflection.

Ginny said...

I love the mallard pose! And is that a blue heron? Love the reflection. I love the first mallard's reflection, and the painted turtle's head. Lennon was SO witty!

Andrea Priebe said...

Wonderful series ... you should have posted on Weekend Reflection ... 'cause you had plenty of them. And, I think you squeeked by with the "two Mallards" ... but, hey, it's all about having a good time, right?
