Thematic Photographic 349 - Wildlife

Sammy lives!
London, ON
August 2015
It's hard to take a walk anywhere and not come across some random animal's path. Whether it's the jackrabbits that torment our dog on his regular strolls or the snake you see here, we're never at a loss for reminders that even in the middle of a built-up city, nature rules.

So for the next week, Thematic's theme, wildlife, celebrates the critters large and small, cute and not-so-cute, that share this planet with us. I'm sure I'm not alone in that I have an archive stuffed with all sorts of wildlife pics, and I can't wait to see what you've got in yours.

Your turn: Upload a picture that supports this week's theme - wildlife - to your blog or website, then leave a comment here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants to spread the photographic fun, and feel free to drop back in through the week and share more pics as they occur to you. If you're new to Thematic, head here. If you tweet, feel free to use the #ThematicPhotpgraphic hashtag. If you're so inclined, smile while you shoot. Because that's the entire point of this exercise. Enjoy...and thanks.

I have two posts on suburban wildlife here in Western Pennsylvania. Snakes and rabbits and UPS trucks, oh my!

Cool garter* snake portrait, Carmi!

I have a spider, butterfly, and Rory.

* Could be a ribbon snake, a close relative.

Managed at last to upload something for wildlife, plus a black and white. Still no internet, but please leave comments to show you haven't forgotten me! www.gillymaccsphotos.blogspot.com

I love snakes. Used to bring them home to my mom at lunchtime as a kid. :-)

Yay for living in a snake-free country! Some of them are very beautiful, but I wouldn't want to meet one in my back yard...

My wildlife pics are here.
