What’s your favourite?
I went through my blog posts from this year and picked my 10 favourite wildlife photos – the only rule I gave myself was no repeat animals (it was surprisingly easy). I’m curious which photo is the most interesting to people like you who peruse this blog (and thanks for coming by the way). There’s a question at the end that lets you pick your favourite and see how others voted.
Would you join the fun and vote? On the upside it involves one easy click, there’s no wrong answer, no followup email and the only downside is I’m not giving away some fancy camera for participating.
If you find it hard to choose, remember you’re not choosing the next leader of the country!
1. Owning the road
This strange encounter led me to talking about confidence though not all of it well placed. (The red text link in each of the descriptions takes you back to where the photo was originally posted.)
2. Snowy, sleepy kind of day
I remember oh so well getting soaked by the falling wet snow. Then a nearby photographer surprised me with a comment.
3. Smooth moves
When this young grizzly stood up, I was so excited it was hard to focus on getting the shot.
4. Yawn before the sleep
Sea turtles on the beaches in Hawaii did a lot of sleeping. When I saw this yawn, I was completely surprised and it got me thinking about Monday morning.
5. Watching in stereo
These two deer watching me as I tried to find a clear shot among the branches prompted a literary leap to discussing regular rejection by wildlife. I was shocked when it was accepted by the folks at Freshly Pressed.
6. Yellow magic
A few photos with yellow inspired a trip down memory lane to Sesame Street.
7. Lava walk
At first I couldn’t figure out what this creature was, then I discovered it had an interesting past.
8. Synchronized starving
Bizarrely, the only clear view of these birds was thru our living room window. It was an amazing incentive to clean the window!
9. Snow walk
A porcupine taking a stroll in the snow somehow ended up in a discussion about personality.
10. Family gathering
A family gathering broke out among the Sandhill Cranes and I was there to see it!
