Animals

In The Shade, Little & Large

Just sorting some photos for Orkneys Cathedral, when I came across these two.  Up to no good, making plans for a quick get away…….no, really they were very good and stayed at their post on the canal boat, under the shade and on the cushions….a dogs life 🙂

Fearless

I just found this little photo of my youngest dog, Toffee, he is all grown up now.   He loved to make friends when he was a puppy, he still does, but he was fearless then……not so much now, he is a little bit more cautious.   I wish I had the follow up photo to the sniff, it was a kiss from Toffee to the big nose which was sniffing him…….I wondered if big dog was thinking ‘Dinner’

Toffee Makes Friends

When our youngest little dog, Toffee, was a puppy, he loved making friends.  He is such a friendly little dog, and so happy to met everyone, he still is…….but he was such a cute little puppy, just like a little teddy bear.  I came across these photos recently when he was about four months old and thought when looking, that the lady looked like she could eat him, as he looked so cute 🙂

Polly Parrot

On one of our forays into a garden centre, we walk through the pet department and I spied Polly.  Out came the camera and I could not resist the urge to take some Polly photos.  It’s not something I normally do, but I did enjoy taking them and Polly didn’t seem to mind.

 

Snakes Alive

This is not my normal type of photo, but it is, the day that I came to like a snake.  We were at a country fair somewhere in the county of Rutland in June 2016, and there was the normal type of things like tractors and sheep dogs etc, but there was also the snake man, no ….not really…. but thats what I called him.  We walked into a tent and there was the snake coiled around the keepers neck, I have no idea what type of snake it was  but the colours were beautiful…. I was seeing the snake through the lens of a camera in my mind, it was beautiful.  I knew I wanted to catch the snakes forked tongue darting out, but it was so quick, but then I got my photo (the last photo on the post)……look at the pattern on the scales, it looks like a row of pointy teeth, just like the real thing.  I was just really pleased that the photos came out ok, of course if I had come across the snake in the long grass….it was have been a totally different story.  I also thought it was a good one for my Occupation Category, Wildlife Keeper.

What About Me

Last year 2016, when we were in Landsberg, Bavaria, I spotted this little cutie.   I love taking photos of dogs, and this little one caught my eye, you just knew there was a question in the air……as the children were drinking from the fountain…..me, what about me, I need one too.  There followed an amazing little sequence.  

I’m still waiting…..

Finally, Mum has noticed…….so happy, jumping for joy 🙂

Now I just need to dry off
