Hiding. Incognito. Critterouflage.

Why is it that every time I point my Nikon at an animal, it decides to hide from me?

Embrace the Nikon, my critter friends!

uh, could you put that thing down and move this binder out of my way?

finally, a critter that is not camera shy.

A Slow Escape
I may just spend the rest of my life photographing slugs.

Sweet... right up until that last 'orrible critter!!! I am pretty good with most animals... but slugs... ugh.

Nice focus though!

ewgh slug. Good shot but ewgh. They are slippery to step on that's all I have to say.

{Sydney}~ Funny you should mention slippery, but last month we had a major slug issue. On the way to the arena, I would just hold my breath because they were all over the grass and I think my horse and I were walking on a carpet of squish. Eeww!!

Love the cat, hate the slug! I've always disliked those disgusting critters, bring out the salt! However the picture OF the slug was rather well done, with the light capturing the true essence of the slugs personality and splendor. LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL LOL!

Love the Bailey and Domino pictures! Cats crack me up, why do they have to crawl in every bag or box? Silly!
I took a picture of a slug a few weeks ago, and my OH asked what I was doing. I told him I was taking a picture of a slug and he says "A slug? Why?" Don't ask!

I totally hate slugs... but this one looks like glossy black liquorice. Are you sure it wasn't so comatose that you didn't spray paint it, lol...

Happy Pink Saturday, and Happy Independence Day as well (I hadn't realised....) Celebrations all round!
