This Little Piggy Went to Market

I took this photo at the Royal Sydney Easter show. He looked so clean and pink in his pen. :grin:

Beware of the Bulls

Camera Critters

I took this photo during our last visit to my father’s farm. My father used to breed bucking bulls for the rodeo circuit here in New Zealand, and the sign comes from a time when it was dangerous to enter the paddock. These cattle are pretty friendly and it’s safe to walk up to them.

Dinner Time at the Goat Pen

Camera Critters

I took this photo at the Royal Sydney Easter Show at the start of our cruise holiday. I can’t remember the name of the breed, but they were very cute.

Catch of the Day

Camera Critters

We saw these fish at a stall in Bora Bora. I don’t suppose these tuna are exactly happy fish, but they were certainly eye catching.

Ready For Take-Off

My hubby went out with his brother on his boat this weekend. He took this photo of a shag drying its feathers at the marina.

The Odd Couple

Camera Critters

Hubby and I wandered down to the local school to check out their gala day. I snapped this shot of a miniature pony and a Great Dane puppy because it made me laugh. I actually had trouble getting a decent shot because people got in the way. The pony wanted to hide under the trailer while the Great Dane wanted to sleep. They are definitely “The Odd Couple.”

Dropping in for a Visit

Camera Critters

We live near an estuary and have lots of water birds hanging around. The ducks, especially, seem to like roaming the roads and visiting people. We often have ducks on our front lawn. When Scotty and I used to go for a walk they’d follow after us, squawking for food. This one actually landed in the back part of our lawn. We fed her and she came back a few days later. It was a hot day, and I had all the sliding doors open. I was writing and happened to look up to see the duck ready to step right into our lounge. I scrambled to shut the door and we eyed each other through the glass for about five minutes.

Hey Cutie

Camera Critters

During our last visit to the farm, my father had a hen and several chickens that had hatched recently. They were awfully difficult to photograph and kept moving. This is a closeup of one of the chicks. The white on the right of the photo is the hen’s breast.

All By Myself

Camera Critters

This week I’m posting a photo of an ostrich, taken at Wellington Zoo. I have actually seen ostriches in the wild and have vivid memories of a male ostrich with twelve chicks running after him. This ostrich is a loner.

A few facts about ostriches:

1. They’re the world’s largest flightless bird.
2. They live in savannah and desert lands and get most of their water from their food.
3. Ostrich kicks are capable of killing both humans and predators such as lions.
4. Ostriches live in small herds with an alpha male taking charge (I wonder if anyone has written an ostrich shifter???)
5. Ostriches do not hide their heads in the sand, but they do lie low and attempt to flatten themselves against the ground as a way of hiding.
6. Ostrich meat is delicious to eat (according to Mr. Munro) and very healthy for you.
7. They live for about 30 – 40 years in the wild.
