Camera Critters

These are both older photos taken during our overland trip through Africa. They’re scanned, hence the black around the edge of the photos.

Animals: Custer State Park

Camera Critters

Today I’m posting two shots I took during our visit to Custer State Park in South Dakota. The first is a praire dog and the second is of a wild burro. The burros were released by miners once they were no longer required. This park also boasts the largest free-roaming herd of buffalo in the US.

Camera Critters

This week I have photos of two different critters taken during my recent holiday in Phuket.

Kingfisher, Phuket

I think this is a type of Kingfisher. He sat very still while we kayaked around him and took lots of photos.

We hired a tuk-tuk to go the a restaurant and watch the sunset. This was one of the elephants we saw on the way there. He’s bedded down for the night with his dinner at his feet.

Camera Critters

Last year Mr. Munro and I visited Kelly Tarlton’s Underwater World for a sleepover. Along with fish and turtles they also have penguins, and we were lucky enough to have a behind the scenes tour. It was molting time hence the scruffy appearance of some of the penguins.

Red Alert!

Picture this…

Sunday morning. Early.

Mr. Munro is out of bed, and he’s in…insert big groan here…clean-up mode.

First it’s the in-basket with all our bills and invoices etc.

“Do you want this? Why are we keeping this?” I had to rescue several items before they went into the trash.

I let out a sigh of relief when he finished. Mistake big time. He was in the groove and moved onto the pantry then the fridge. By that time I was cowering in the lounge and trying to concentrate on something else. Mr. Munro makes me very nervous when he gets in his cleaning moods. Thankfully, the mood passed by the afternoon and he decided he’d cook a curry for dinner. I didn’t have any arguments with that because he’s a great cook.

Pig Sculptures, Sedona

When we visited Sedona in USA during our last trip, they had these cute pig sculptures along the street. They were all different colors and the artists had used different techniques. I couldn’t resist a photo.

What’s For Lunch?

Wanna share your lunch with me?

This inquisitive mountain sheep got a little close for comfort. My window wouldn’t go up fast enough!

Standing Tall

Camera Critters

My animal this week is a giraffe. This particular photo was taken in Kenya, I think at Samburu National Park. We were also able to visit the giraffe center near Nairobi during a different trip. I still remember feeding the giraffes. It was amazing, although their tongues were sort of sticky! If you’d like to see a photo of me feeding a giraffe, follow the photos link above to take you to some of my other photos.

This photo was taken at Bear Country in South Dakota. We wanted to make sure we saw plenty of bears and this is a black bear. As well as bears we saw bison, moutain lions, and otters to mention a few. To visit other Camera Critters go here.
