When is it my Turn?

Camera Critters

I took this photo last week at the Clevedon A & P show. He was sitting comfortably and snoozing while waiting for his event to commence.

Isn’t he a handsome fellow?

The Play Date

This is another photo I took at Wellington zoo. This pair of sun bears were having lots of fun wrestling with each other and running all over their enclosure.

Sea Plus Horse Equals Seahorse

Camera Critters

My photo this week was taken at the Kona Seahorse Farm in Hawaii. Those elegant fingers are mine. :grin: I love seahorses and think they’re the coolest creature. They fascinate me. Besides, any species where the male has the babies is doing the right thing.

Dinner Time at the Goat Pen

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.

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.

Does My Bum Look Big In This?

I took this shot of a sun bear at Wellington Zoo. They’re called sun bears because of the creamy round sun shape on their upper chest. (You can’t see it in this shot) They come from the Southern Asia region.

Time for a Drink

Camera Critters

We came across these mountain goats on the side of the road near Mt. Rushmore. Hubby and I were more excited about seeing them than the president’s faces. The animals ignored us as they took a drink from the water that trickled down a rock face.

Hello Deer

Camera Critters

This photo was taken at the Rocky Mountain National Park. As you can see, the elk is wearing a tracking device. We saw quite a few elk during our travels.
