Longhorns

I just downloaded these from my camera and I just had to share at least one of them!!

We went to the Wildlife Refuge after the rains. It was amazing to see everything to alive and bright since we’ve had a drought the past couple of years. There were huge herds of longhorns enjoying the green grass. Some were grazing and some were just laying around.

Foto Finish: Friendly Prairie Dog

I’ve been away from Foto Finish for awhile, but I’m ready to get back at it and I hope that you are too!!

foto-finish

Today, I just had to post this cute little prairie dog that we saw.  My parents were here visiting and we couldn’t miss an opportunity to head out to the Wildlife Refuge.  As we were leaving, I stopped to get some photos of some geese that were nearby.  However, this friendly little prairie dog spotted my dad watching him out the window and he couldn’t help but to pose for us.

Isn’t he just adorable!?!?  We had so much fun getting shots of him and my dad couldn’t resist talking to him and getting the little guy to show off.

Foto Finish: Birds

Commotion from the Ocean of Life

 

Welcome back to Foto Finish!!  This week’s (optional) theme is birds.  I didn’t choose this topic for any certain reason.  I do miss the amount of birds that visit during the summer.  All the ones now are just plain hungry and don’t really visit.

Since birds are also “critters”, I’ll be linking up with Camera Critters and Saturday’s Critters as well.  After you’re done with Foto Finish, please click the buttons at the end of the post and visit some of their great photography as well!!

This is a pair of mourning doves that were in love.  They went everywhere together!!  Here’s my submission for this week’s Foto Finish, Camera Critters, and Saturday’s Critters….

Little Momma

Camera Critters

Commotion from the Ocean of Life

 

 

 

 

 

I haven’t posted for Camera Critters in quite some time. I’ve definitely missed it!! I’m also going to use this opportunity to get my Foto Finish started back up again.  After all, it is Saturday!!  I wanted to use today’s Foto Finish and CC to introduce the new member of our family.    

We refer to her as Little Momma….

CC - LittleMomma2 byElaine

Now, why is she called that?? Well, here’s the story!! Kiddo volunteers at the shelter and they got this pregnant dog in there. Normally they don’t allow the pregnant ones to have their pups there IF they have a choice. The person that runs it was already tending to a new momma dog at her house, so they didn’t know what to do with this new one. Kiddo comes home and tells me that they have the cutest pregnant dog and they just need someone to foster her until she has the pups. When they’re old enough, they can all go back to the pound. I agree to look at her and I’m not even through the gate when I see her sticking her head out and trying to get to me. I was done for!! We ended up taking her home that day and well, she became ours!!

We were just so impressed with her. She was a puppy herself, but she was the best momma dog there was. She birthed 4 pups and all 4 survived. That’s saying a lot for such a small young thing herself. Those puppies coats glistened and they were all fat and sassy. She showed us so much love, despite loving her own pups that I just couldn’t let her go back to the pound. One of the best decisions that I’ve ever made!!

The pups were given to a pet store for easier and better adoption choices. My parents got the smallest of the puppies….and he was also the only brown one the same color as Little Momma.  A happy life for all!!

Oh, and for our optional theme for next week’s Foto Finish, I choose….

SPORTS

Things That Fly

Foto Finish

Camera Critters

Today, I have a 2-fer!!  I’m participating in Foto Finish and Camera Critters.  The theme for this week’s Foto Finish is “things that fly”.

I absolutely love feeding the birds.  We don’t get a large variety in our backyard, mostly 2 varieties of sparrows.  However, we have had a Cardinal couple that has visited for months now and I love them!!  We also get Pigeons and Morning Doves.  A couple weeks ago, we were visited by a Bluejay and I’ve already shared a photo of him.

Much to my happiness, while my parents were visiting us last weekend, a Hawk started to appear.  It seems to be making a home nearby.  In the photo that I chose, you can see some straw or twigs in its mouth.  I haven’t seen it at all this week, but I keep watching.  I have to believe that it’ll be back!!

Here’s my Foto Finish and Camera Critters (click to enlarge)….

Do you have any photos of “things that fly” or any critters?? If you do, just post your photos and click one or both of the button above to join in on Foto Finish or Camera Critters!!
