April Photo Scavenger Hunt

April Fools!
April Fools!

Yep I had my very own April Fools in 2008 when this shot was taken.  The girls willingly hammed it up for my shot-of-the-day during my 365 Project.

I’m really not trying to fool you today though. Mother Nature is playing a big enough fool herself.  Forecast for today around here is for 3-5″ of snow,  possibly more depending on who you believe.  My real purpose for this post is to provide you with my photo scavenger hunt list for April. 

At Scott’s suggestion, I’ve made the list a little shorter; there are 7 items instead of 12.  New pictures are my preference since the purpose of these hunts is to get you out and shooting, but if you’ve got the perfect shot in your archives that will fit the bill, feel free to use it. 

Just like last time, literal, creative, funny, snarky or liberal interpretations of the list are welcome – I just want you to participate!  I chose items that I hope will provide for a wide variety of interpretations:

  • body of water
  • train
  • hood
  • sprout
  • bud
  • basket
  • bunny
  • BONUS: clear, sharp, close-up of a Mr. Cardinal! (I’m specifically talking about the bird here, not the priest!)

Like before, leave me a link to your post in the comments of this post.  I’ll leave this post easily accessible on the sidebar.  How about a deadline of April 24th?  That’s my birthday – it’d be a great gift to see all your wonderful pictures on that day. 


Do not, I repeat, do not, buy a bag of these to accomplish your “bunny” shot:

These things are seriously addictive!  There should be a warning on the bag.  I’m ashamed to admit I’ve now eaten 3 bags of these things since my local CVS put them on the shelf in March. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

PS to my fellow fans: PLAY BALL and GO SOX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


  1. lol! For me it was Starburst jelly beans. They should ban those things.

    Great list! I don’t know about that bonus shot, though. The male cardinal has been teasing me all winter, sitting pretty near the window when I don’t have my camera and taking off as soon as I grab the camera and get him in focus. He’s driving me crazy. lol!

    • I know – that’s why the cardinal is a bonus! I’ve been trying for a long time to get a good picture of a cardinal, so I may not be able to do my own bonus!

  3. Mother Nature is being very cruel to us today! Arrrgh!

    This looks like fun! AND, your BIRTHDAY is my ANNIVERSARY! Double reason to celebrate!

    • Thank goodness that “winter storm” turned out to be nothing.
      I’ll look forward to your shots!

  4. Oh oh oh… That’s not fair… Where am I supposed to find a Cardinal ??.. Lol.. Lucky you’ve thrown it in just as a bonus I guess… but the challenge has been issued now… 😉

    • I didn’t even think about cardinals not being native everywhere! They are such common birds here. How’s this – I will take a picture of any U.K. red bird from you!

      • Lol.. Well I’ll see what I can do, but I’d stand more chance finding a Dodo… 😉

  5. Yikes! Be care about calling Mother Nature a fool…she might retaliate! Hey..the gummy bunnies bag looks empty. 🙂 I remember the April fools in the picture..beautiful girls!!!

    • Ugh is right. What an awful opening weekend. 😥

  9. You are too funny with the candies! Your list looks good though – I think I’ll give up on the cardinal one now though. Those suckers move fast! Here’s a tip though for keeping your eyes out for them – they have an undulating flight pattern so if you see a bird go by sort of dipping up & down as it flies, watch where it goes!

    • Have you tried the darn things? You’d understand if you had! 😉
      I just may not have to worry about my bonus shot, actually! :mrgreen:
