Photo Menagerie

One thing I love about my photography hobby is the way it makes me stop and look at the world more closely. My zoom lens helps me get up close and personal with God’s creation, and this year has been a great adventure behind the lens. I want to share photos of some of the creatures I’ve gotten to know with my camera.

Of course, we can’t have animals on the blog without mentioning Pancake the squirrel. I have LOTS of photos of that silly guy, and even one of him and his “girlfriend.” (The kids named her Waffle.)_MDS4176 



I am so thankful for the bay window in my living room! It has given me a front-row seat for spying on the world. Now if I could just figure out how to remove the blue cast in my photos that comes from shooting through a Low-E Argon window!

Oh my! That opposum hand is freaky up close! So similar to our own! Great pics, Elizabeth.

Beautiful pictures, as always! I adore looking at pictures of wildlife, you really captured the natural beauty and wonder of these sweet little creatures. I must say, Pancake and Waffle are pretty darn cute!

The opossum gives me the heebie jeebies but I can't stop looking at him.

So when are you going to open an etsy shop so I can buy a print of the turtle image and hang it in Gray's room?
