The Wandering Herpetologist, who writes a fantastic blog related to all things Herpetology (reptiles and amphibians) included me in the photo meme “My 7 Super Shots.” I was asked to select seven photos that represent seven categories. I had great fun looking through my wildlife photo folder to find one for each category.
A photo that takes my breath away:
This was taken when we went camping. It was shot from very far away but I still managed to get this decent photo of him. It was just a happy, little kookaburra but a beautiful, little moment.
A photo that makes me laugh or smile:
Some of you Wordless Wednesday followers may have already seen this one. I made you all create a caption for it here. It always makes me giggles now!
A photo that makes me dream:
The quote on my sidebar.
I truly believe this and hope I’m making just a little difference out there by influencing parents to inspire wildlife appreciation in the daily teaching of their children.
A photo that makes me think:
Yep, worms make me think. How can something be so gross but so awesome for our garden?
A photo that makes my mouth water:
It’s not necessarily this photo that makes my mouth water but more what’s inside that tree trunk. Yummmm!
A photo that tells a story:
We followed this duck park family of six from when their eggs hatched. We fed them healthy duck food in the mornings (before bread gorging began) to help the young to grow up big and strong. It might only be one photo but it’s a wonderful life cycle story.
A photo that I am most proud of :
This photo may be fuzzy but I’ve waited my whole life to get a photo of a platypus in the wild. They were my favourite animal until I realised I loved them all equally. I got up very early to have a close encounter with this little guy and it was so worth it.
I think now I’m meant to find five others who might like to share their Seven Super Shots (it doesn’t have to be wildlife related). So, I’m choosing…
With Some Grace because Grace is an instragram addict so she’s bound to have a photo for each category.
Science @ Home because I love Deb’s blog and I’m certain she’ll share some super nature photos too.
Back to Basics Tuition because Kate knows all about how images help children learn. I’ll be looking forward to what photos she’ll post.
Kate’s Fab Four because, well, I can’t help but smile every time I see the header on her blog. Did you know I have a foot fetish Kate?
