Scavenger Hunt Sunday

MOTION

(enlarge for best detail)

Last Monday I sat at my sunroom window and practiced trying to capture a bird in motion. This one of a Mourning Dove getting ready to land on the bird feeder was one of those attempts. I have a few more I'll be posting on Wednesday.

'WAITING TO CLICK'
I live in the country and am very accustomed to seeing deer cross my property. Each time it is a joy to see. To get a good shot of the face I have to be patient and wait for the moment when she stops nibbling on the grass or bird seed and lifts her head to stop, listen, and look to see if she's still safe to stay and keep eating. Then I click.

IN FASHION
I'm not really one to follow fashion trends. Give me a good pair of jeans and a T-shirt and I'm good to go. The one item I do love is a nice purse. This is a detail from the purse I carry in the summer. It is denim blue and has a bright red lining - perfect with jeans! For me you can't go wrong with the always in fashion Tommy Hilfiger. A little secret though - I shop discount and never pay full price.

ANIMAL'S PERSPECTIVE
"A little toad hopped through the grass and came upon a magic mushroom....."

MANY
The Easter Bunny will soon be coming to town!

Great collection! Your motion shot is great. You captured each winged feather in motion. Awesome. I love your waiting to click capture too. I just saw a deer yesterday and I did not have my camera. I really enjoy the color of your easter Hershey Kisses.

I just love this meme and what you do with it! I didn't recognize the mourning dove - how beautiful it is in motion! I love your macro shots, too!

This is a wonderful Scavenger Hunt post. I really like your first picture of the dove in motion.

That scavenger hunt is too much fun! I love what you find. And your motion shots are so good. (I almost wrote amazing, but coming from your camera and your eye..and your patience.., nothing surprises me.)

Is there any way to shop besides discount ;>).....

Those kisses are just what I'd hope the Easter Bunny would leave me. Forget Peeps. My kids didn't even like them when they were little.
