Thematic Photographic 7 - Animals


To err is human. To forgive, bovine.
Middlesex County, ON, July 2008 [Click to embiggen]

This week's image comes to us courtesy of the farmers just up the road from our house. I was on my way to pick our daughter up from a playdate last weekend when I caught this happy family of moos out of the corner of my eye. The sunroof was open, the sun was shining and cool tunes were tootling through the wondervan. I pulled over and quietly approached the roadside fence to avoid spooking them.

Then the one in front started to pee. So much for not spooking them. Ah, the joys of photography.

Your turn: It's time for YOU to share YOUR animal-themed pictures with the rest of my little blog-world. Here's how it works:
  1. I post a new entry every Wednesday evening.
  2. Each entry has a unique theme. This week's is...animals!
  3. You post a similarly themed image over on your blog.
  4. You paste a link to your entry in a comment here.
  5. If you've already posted something that fits (on a blog, Facebook, MySpace, wherever) simply post the link to the existing entry.
  6. Feel free to play along as often as you like. You can keep posting, playing and sharing for as long as you wish.
  7. Please share this link with friends, too. I like when lots of folks have fun with photography.

You've picked one of my two most often shot subjects (the other being Carolina Hurricanes Hockey). I'll have a tough time narrowing the field for this one. Expect many dogs. Many, many dogs.

I like to think that this cow is a thug among his own: http://www.flickr.com/photos/tkbrauer/2154382947/in/set-72157602363960025/
or then there's this guy...

Tara said...

Thanks for the advice comment on my blog today! I'm totally clueless when it comes to camera differences. I just know the one I want is way to expensive right now. Its good to know that with the right one I can capture all the moments that I have missed in the past.

Irene said...

srp said...

Well, we certainly are not at a loss for subjects around here for this one! But since I know you expect a feline picture, I decided to pose something completely different!

If we could talk to the animals...

smarmoofus said...

I am finally up! I had to gain access to animals. And then I chose cats, of all things. You know how well cats cooperate.

Now to go look at the cute (and perhaps not-so-cute) other contributions...

Finally made it and managed to get Wordless Wednesday and the Animal theme with one photo.

This one I took underwater in Hawaii. This baby was 4 feet long and hung out with us the entire time we were diving.

Better late than never! Come check out my bird shots. At one point it was almost like the movie "Birds". Although I missed a picture of that because I was trying not to get pooped on!

I am late on entering the animal thematic....but I just loved your picture of your flamingo.

Not sure what kind of bird this is but I was able to capture this amazing picture.
