Camera-Critters #116

It's my birthday (Saturday), and I'm headed to a yard sale that a bunch of my co-workers, some of my favorite people in the world, are having. So, I'm posting my Camera-Critters early. After the yard sale, I plan on going to get a new cell phone, because we're on the 2-year free upgrade plan. Happy birthday to me, I'm getting myself a free phone! hehe I'd LOVE to tell you I'm getting an iPhone and will need some iphone insurance, but that's not going to happen anytime in the near future. So, let me tell you another story.

Hub's computer desk is in front of a window, which faces the road. While looking out that window, he's called me to go photograph raccoons, pheasants, fox, deer, and other things. So, it is now habit for me to immediately jump up and grab my camera and run for the door when he's sitting there and all of a sudden whispers "HONEY!"

That's what happened the other evening, but I must admit that when I got to the door, I was quite surprised at what I saw. I can honestly say I've never seen this before...

Hurry UP Kids! We're LATE!

Junior, keep up with us now. You're always lagging behind!

What's the stinkin' hurry Mom?
Don't talk back, Junior, or I'll redden that white stripe of yours!
Moooooom! Make Fred lower his tail. Can't hardly see straight back here!

Too cute! as long as they are in the distance. Happy Birthday. It's always fun to get a new phone.

Carolyn Ford

Oh my cute these guys are. But, I hope you didn't startle them with your camera! Whoa...that could be very deadly for a while! :)


What fabulous photographs and how funny to see them charging along like that. I wonder what frightened them?
Many Happy Returns of the Day on your birthday - enjoy your day :-)


What a cute family and a great sighting. Happy Birthday, Misty Dawn! I hope you have a great day!


Aw, I now they stink but they are so cute.
Awesome photo series!


Aren't you glad that you were inside, looking out at that amazing little family! Great story about the critters who pass by your home. While camping one year when our kids were little, we looked up from our campfire and saw a family of cute skunks between us and the door of our camper, keeping us out of our "home." We waited and watched them until they strolled away for the evening.

Happy Birthday, Misty Dawn! I should have scheduled a post, too, but I did just now get it put up and linked.

Just what kind of neighborhood do you live in? It sounds like the critters own the road. LOL


Happy Birthday, Misty and thanks so much for hosting Camera Critters for us each week. I love the photos of the skunk family. I know I filmed a family group in 2007, but I don't think I have any good stills.


Wow! How did you come across these critters? BTW, apparently you have or had a birthday. Hope it's wonderful, and thanks for sponsoring this meme.

Coy Hill

Great catch of the 'lil stinkers and a happy belated birthday to you. Unusual to see a family of skunks out running around in bright light but so nice these went on parade for you!


Those photos are *amazing*!! What an opportunity and what a riot. The photos are perfect, too. Happy Birthday, Misty! I've been away too long (life got the better of me) but I'm back where I belong, with the best. And I've gotten married! Yippee!! And my husband's computer is in front of the window and he does exactly the same thing telling me when to grab the camera. Life is sweet.


LOL! Great dialogue. I love to look at skunks—from afar. ;)


I KNOW you're glad his computer is where it is!
Very cool capture!

Adrienne Zwart
