Wildlife - Thematic Photography

I'm always on the lookout for wildlife to photograph when I'm out. Quite often it's small creatures that catch my eye.

Caterpillar on the ground
It's the caterpillar that does all the work but the butterfly or moth that gets all the publicity.

If you are a birdwatcher there will come a time when it seems the bird is watching you.

A cormorant alongside the River Tees watching who goes by 
But you wonder how these fellows stay so clean as they approach the mud.

Drakes in their element

When it comes to colours, a snail stands out 

On a bramble leaf
Sometimes wildlife comes to you - like these two in the Michigan dusk.

Rocky and Bambi share a meal
There are even times when you don't have to leave your lounge to see scenes like these.

To see more wildlife check out the links at Carmi's Thematic-Photographic-349.

Wonderful photos. I always find it difficult to take photos of birds. They always turn their heads the wrong way just at the moment the shutter snaps.

Love the wildlife pictures Bob. The raccoon and the deer especially.

Those are terrific shots, Bob! Love the cormorant - he's definitely got his eye on you!

So many great shots. I love the caterpillar though. It's knowing what it will turn into soon that I long to see. :-)
