Camera Critters


I missed last weekend because of thunderstorms in my area.

Today I'll finish with the critters we found on our adventure to the Japanese Garden in Hermann Park.



Turtles Sunning

The turtles were out sunning themselves.

Mallard Ducks


I think the mallards have a nest under the bridge.


Mockingbird


And last, but certainly in his mind, not least ... the mockingbird who did not want his portrait done. Too bad!

Happy Critter Day everyone!

Joy to You!

Me, being another Texan appreciates the beauty of the stubborn Mockingbird [giggles]. I love hearing them in the morning. Well, they sing most all day long around here!!

Thanks for the visit, and I loved viewing your critter photos. Have a great weekend.

Lovely tutles, an impressive size too from tre looks of it. A pity your mockingbird didn't want a portarit but I'm sure you will find a more willing subject soon.

Turtles are fun to watch; the top photo shows some pretty good sized ones. Birds are not easy to capture, and perhaps you're right, the mockingbird is just plain shy of cameras!
