Scavenger Hunt Sunday - March 11

Hello and Welcome to this weeks edition of Scavenger Hunt Sunday brought to over on Ashley's blog, Rambling and Photos.   Don't forget to stop by and see the other entries.
 I missed last weeks hunt so it was great to be able to join in again this week.
Here are the prompts:  Water, Light, Chocolate, Animal and Crowded.  - I will confess to using 2 "archived" photos this week.  Mainly because I really like both the photos and they've never appeared on my blog at any time.

First up, WATER:  I was experimenting using my husbands little Kodak camera the other day and took a photo of one of the little waterfalls (if you can call them that) on the river that flows through the local High School campus. 
LIGHT: - This is 1 of the "archived" photos.  I was going through my photos the other day and happened upon this one that I took of some candle holders last fall on our (fake) fireplace mantle.  It was so pretty I decided to use it for the prompt.




CHOCOLATE: - Oh yum! What a great prompt.  I confess to going out and buying a chocolate mint brownie to take photos of and yes I did take pictures and I shared the brownie too.  However in the end I decided to use a photo of a mini-Hershey bar instead (I ate it too!).


ANIMAL: I'm excited about this one.  - I bet you think you are going to see a picture of a "Cat" because what else would someone post who has 6 cats in their house and feeds neighborhood cats/strays and is referred to as the "crazy cat lady" by her friends post. - Well guess what?  It's not a cat.

This is our dog, Cricket.  The thing that excites me is that I "finally" got a decent picture of her.  She's normally very hard to photograph because she never sits still long enough to take her picture and if you do happen to get a picture of her she generally has her tongue hanging out of her mouth as well. And before you ask...no she wasn't born with 3 legs.  For those who don't know the story shortly after we got her as a puppy she fell off our back step and caught her right front leg in the chain link fence and broke a piece out of the growth plate that could not be repaired here and was far to costly to repair elsewhere so we opted to have it amputated.  She's never missed it and can run/play with the best of them.

CROWDED:  - This is my other "archived" photo.

I discovered a bunch of bees one day on the trunk of a tree while out walking and hurried home to fetch my camera before they disappeared.  They apparently had built their hive on the inside of the tree and were all crowding around outside waiting for their turn to get inside the small opening in the tree to their hive.  I'd say it was probably just as crowded on the inside as it was the outside.
That's it for this week.  Next week the prompts are:  Vintage, Word/Quote, Nature's Own, People and Photographer's Choice.

  5. Nice takes on this week's prompts. Love your pic of your pug. I think animals with dark faces are hard to photograph but you did a great job with this one. Wish people were more like dogs who don't complain about their conditions and accept themselves the way they are.

  13. Great pictures. Your water is great also......no cat? Crowded is interesting to me because after stepping on a wasp nest and getting over 40 stings I am now allergic to be stings. Great shot all the same. Thanks

  22. Great photos, love seeing cricket, I remember that traumatic time! If I'd seen those bee's I'd have been running alright, never to "bee" seen again by those bee's. Good job, love checking out your photos.

  23. Love your light shot, Ida. I would not have been so brave with that crowd of bees but it is perfect for the prompt. Thanks for stopping by.

  24. Dogs have no idea what they can't do. I love the whole set.

  25. Hi Ida, I like that you confessed to eating the chocolate after you shot it! What a great bee shot! I am such a wimp when it comes to bees, that I doubt that I would have had the nerve to get so close. Your poor doggie! At least he has made a great recovery and gets around fine on his 3 remaining legs. Great pic of him! I like the bench in the last post a lot, although I think I might prefer it without the diagonal writing.
