Camera Critters

Visit Camera Critters to enjoy more critters this weekend!

Mr. Dragon and I are at a special camera day at the zoo.
I prepared today's Camera Critters from some old photos (film not digital)
I came across recently. I knew I wouldn't have time for a *new* critter post.



I took these pictures about 10 years ago when we went to Florida to see a shuttle launch.
I love the turtle with the *plant* growing on his back and the green stuff he was living in.
I didn't see him until he moved. Really blended in the algae.


A white Egret.


My favorite shots were of the Night Heron.


I made 8x10's of both shots intending to frame them and never did.
I have the frames.
Maybe it's possible they'll hang around to be enjoyed!

Enjoy your weekend.

Hi - thanks so much for dropping by our 100th post and leaving a comment! We LOVE the photo of the turle hiding in the algae, really wonderful. The bird shots are great too - sadly, if we saw birds like that we wouldn't be able to help ourselves and would end up woofing at them and probably scare them away....sigh!

Hi there,
are you doing ok?
A turtle with things GROWING on its shell?! Strange! I went to a market today and saw a huge mushroom with lingonberries growing on top of it. That was pretty strange too. Then I saw those two huge dogs with the sunglasses and seatbelts and this time I had my camera! Yay! They will be blogged.....
hugs

I think that turtle needs to move more in the algae water!
Lovely film shots!

The Night Heron is so beautiful - very elegant - but the turtle! - is it common for them to have foliage growing on them? Perhaps they like to develop their own camouflage!

Hi Snap, Hope you enjoyed the zoo. I remember taking my grands to the zoo at Houston. VERY nice!!!!
I'm sure you will get some great 'camera critters' photos from there.

BUT--today's pictures are great also. Love that turtle --who was really disguised there.

Hugs,
Betsy

Great shots Snap (snap shot, shots snap...you can see what kind of day I'm having!! lol!!). That turle was amazingly chamoflouged (forget spelling today!) and the bird shots are so close up. I hope you do put these into frames!

I love turtles! We see them poke their noses (snouts?) up when we go kayaking.

Janet said...

That turtle is amazing! And the birds are beautiful, too. They have such long graceful necks.

Beautiful Creation said...

Very nice post! I never saw a night heron before....I actually never even heard of them before. Thanks for sharing.

Terrific camouflage for that turtle. I have to admit I love Florida birds, there is something magical about them. You should get those 8 x 10's into some frames and see them every day, now that you've rediscovered them yourself.

These are gorgeous shots! I never would have guessed they weren't digital. Beautiful subjects too! The Snowy Egret looks beyond graceful.
