Camera-Critters #56

I realized I was really slim on critter photos to post for this week, because it has been raining for over a week! Rain... rain... rain. I think I need to build an ark. That would be rather difficult for me, ya know? No, not the building part - I'd be O.K. with that. I'm referring to the fact that I would be only supposed to take two of each animal with me on the ark. That would not be O.K. with me. I mean geesh, I've already got THREE dogs. Can we substitute one dog for say leaving an alligator off the ark? We don't want those things multiplying anyway! And, how in the world could I turn animals away. And, seriously, does this rule apply to insects? Because, come on, insects don't take up much room, and they could fly part of the way. I am not turning dragonflies or butterflies away!

What? Ohhhhhhhh I got waaaaaaaaay off track there, didn't I? Sorry - that happens sometimes. Enjoy my Killdeer-in-flight photos ;-)

Super Killdeer captures Misty! Very impressive. And I love your commentary on the Ark ;-) You can send some of that rain California way if you like, we surely need it!


gorgeous shot Misty! looks similar to my seagull photos..


Those are wonderful photos !!

We're having a rainy weekend. Mind you, living in the High Sierra desert, any rain is more than welcome as it is a rare event :-)


Maybe you could trade, say, mosquitoes and bedbugs for other animals? How many bedbugs = one dog, I wonder... ;)


Gorgeous photos! Really beautiful. I can never get good bird-in-flight photos. I'm jealous.


I totally agree with you, Misty. How did Noah manage not to take more than one pair? LOL!

Fantastic shots!



Great captures of the killdeer in flight. We had miserable weather all week too.

Oh, it's a killdeer - It looks much bigger in flight than a killdeer! hehehe
Very nice photos!

Adrienne Zwart

Very nice! We've had lots of rain here, too. Today's been a breezy, puffy cloud kind of day though which is a nice change.


Wonderful Killdeer shots! Love seeing their beautiful wings.

I'm jealous of people who can take these great inflight pictures..sandy


Nice in-flight shots! Took my a couple of years to get a decent in-flight Killdeer shot.

WONDERFUL capture of a bird I never see in MY part of the world! Wish you could send some of that rain our way ... seriously!
Hugs and blessings,


How perfectly captured and no blurry bits like when I do it! I'm in this week too. ;0)

Misty: Neat capture of the Killdeer on wing, very nicely done.


Amazing photos!! I'm also amaze about Zootoo’s $1Million makeover!


that's pretty birds. happy weekend.


beautiful strong looking wings!
have a blessed week.


One thing rain is good for is generating certain critter activity... for example frogs can often be found after a rain fall. If you're up for putting on some good boots + a coat, you can end up with a great cc photo ;)

But, then if it never stops raining for the whole day, then what is one to do?! You need to build an "arkive" (typo is deliberate... in case that isn't obvious).*****

P.S The invite to send me a blog badge to add to the main GritFX website still stands - interested?


Amazing wing pattern! It looks beautiful in flight.

Very nice captures of this interesting and beautiful bird!

I love killdeer. I think a pair nest every year at my daughters school.

Great photos. :)


Greaet photos of a killdeer on the wing. We found a killdeer nest in the pasture last year and watched the eggs until the hatched. They babies were out of the nest in just a few days.


Great action shot once again! You rock girl!
