Best of, Part 3

First were the birds.  Second were the flowers.  Are you waiting with bated breath to see what part 3 will bring? No, I didn’t really think you were, but here’s part 3 anyway!  The critters, of course!  Furry, rather than feathered this time around.

Although they really try my patience when it comes to my bird feeders (I am currently shopping for a new one since they managed to destroy my “squirrel-proof” feeder), squirrels are really rather comical.  I found this one doing quite the acrobatic routine one morning:

For my June photo hunt, I asked for a cow picture as a bonus shot.  I’ve had a thing for cows for a while now.  It may stem back to my days as a milkmaid at Old Sturbridge Village, but that doesn’t really explain my love of Oreo cows:

Teddy and Daphne make fairly regular appearances here on the blog, so here are my favorite shots of them from this year:


Teddy’s hi-key portrait in the snow


My solar-powered golden retriever enjoying a sun beam.


And an animated shot of the two of them showing their doggy love for snow.


I could hardly leave poor Cedric out of the fun, right?  Here he is in a “serious” game of “cat and mouse”!

I still have more to come!  This was Part 3 of my submission for Scott’s assignment: Best Photos of 2011.


  1. I remember some of these 🙂 My favorite is the squirrel.

    • That squirrel put on quite a show that morning.

  2. I like Teddy in the snow because I know how hard it is to expose when dealing with snow!

    • I’d love to say that I set that shot up perfectly for exposure, but it was another happy accident!

  3. That Teddy shot is awesome…and Becky Sue is right. Nice job getting white snow!

  4. Keep ’em coming! I am so enjoying your favorites but I cannot pick one that is my favorite (of yours, that is). Maybe today I’ll go through my photos from this past year and see if I can choose some favorites.

    • I’m glad you are enjoying my look back! 🙂 I hope you do pick some favorites to share.

  5. As far as I’m concerned, ‘critters’ make life worth living! Yours are lovely (Teddy is just too photogenic!) As for the squirrels?? Well, I gave into their antics years ago and they reward me with laughs throughout my days. I’d say that’s fair, wouldn’t you? 😉

    • Thank you Tracy. I’m thinking you have the right idea. I did have a squirrel-specific feeder, but they broke that too! I was in Lowe’s yesterday and saw a 2 and half pound suet cake designed for squirrels; I’m thinking of buying it and nailing it to a tree to see if that helps to get them to leave the bird seed alone.

  7. They’re all great. The squirrel cracks me up. And the cows are my favorite. 🙂
