Saturday's Critters #98

Saturday's Critters #98

Happy Halloween!!

Happy Saturday, it's time to share your critters and post. Any kind of critter will do, even a new or old post.. I appreciate everyone who is linking in with this week's critter party.

Can you believe it is the end of October? This month just flew by for me. I am sharing more of the birds and critters we saw during our visit to the beaches and the Hoh Rainforest in the Olympic National Park.


Top row: flock of Snow geese, Perched on the seastack various Brown Pelicans, and Cormorants and Gulls, Green-winged Teals in flight. Second row: Red-throated Loon, Cute puppy dog, gulls. Third row: male and female Elk, squirrel. Bottom row: Mallard, Hooded Merganser & friend, Mallards.



I am watching you!


A foggy look at the seastack with the perched Brown Pelican on the top left side and a lot of Cormorants.

Love the one of the Green-winged Teals in flight, and the misty scene with the cormorants. Nice to see the Elks and the sweet bunny too,but enjoyed seeing them all,and you did a great job of showing and naming them all.

October flew by for me too, Eileen. Sad because I love October. BUT I'm hoping November goes by just as quickly since it's the most overcast month of the year in Ontario. ;)

Sue said...

Good morning, Eileen
Love the elk photo---they're so dark, aren't they? Nice shot

Lynne said...

Saturday's Critters pops up and I wish I had a photo . . .
I saw one, does that count . . .
Snickers and I were on our morning walk yesterday and she saw the huge yellow and white cat first . . .
The one that saunters through our yard sometimes and sets Snickers into a barking fit . . .
Usually she would stop and watch him/her . . .
Instead . . . she seemed fearful, hurried those tiny furry legs down the road, darting her eyes back to see if yellow/white was following her.
She had a "get out of dodge" pace . . .
Could have been some great photos . . .
Not like yours though . . . yours are
REALLY GREAT

Great shots as always. Thanks for sharing your beautiful nature shots. I'm sorry mine aren't of nature. And their actually not even natural today. I hope you don't mind. Hope you enjoy them. (insert wink)
Have a great party.

Felicia said...

the cow elk is so prety.

jeannettestgermain said...

Hope you don't mind I'm commenting here on the post below, but I've never seen white turkeys before. The brown turkeys roam the streets and yards here, just like the deer:) Have a great weekend!

Betty Manousos said...

great collection as usual, eileen! i, especially, like the photo of the elk.
happy halloween!

Andrea Priebe said...

You can just keep showing us pictures from your trip ... they are all gorgeous. Can't pick a favorite because I love them all. It is raining and cold and it's Halloween ... probably won't get many trick or treaters ... more can't for me, right? Wrong ... I am on a diet, ugh! Know anyone who will want my leftovers? Have a great day, Eileen ...
