Saturday's Critters #101

Saturday's Critters #101

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.

Sorry, still showing some vacation photos, I may have one more day of pic's to share. These are some various birds and critters seen on the day of drive to the coast and Cape Flattery. We stopped at the Warmhouse Restaurant in Neah Bay for a late lunch. We also walked on a beach called Hobuck, we saw they also have nice cabins for rent.


A wind blown Great Blue Heron.


I am drawn to any dog I see while on vacation, this one was running on the Hobuck beach with his/her human.


Hobuck beach surfers, a black doggie and a gull.


One of my Washington State lifers. The Greater White-fronted Goose seen out the window of a restaurant in Neah Bay.



They are cute geese.


Another shot from the Neah Bay restaurant of a seal resting on the marina pier.


It is not often I am able to get some barn images so when I saw this cool elk on the field I had to stop for some photos. For Tom's THE BARN COLLECTIVE  seen our drive to the Cape Flattery in Washington..a herd of Elk seen in a field near the barn and farm.


Luckily no one was behind me on the road so I was able to pull over to take these shots of the herd of elk and the barns.


More barn and elk images for Tom's Barn Collective.


I hope you enjoyed my critters and birds. I am so happy you are participating with my critter party or if you just dropped by for a visit. Thanks so much for the comments too. Have a safe and happy weekend..

  1. Great photos - I've not seen the white fronted goose, what a find. We love the elk herds around Washington- we have two local herds but have only seen them once. Some friends have had them come right into their back yard.

  6. Hello Eileen,

    Since I live in a big city like Montreal I rarely get to see elk and lovely country scenes. Gorgeous series, thank you so much for sharing.

  7. It is interesting to see elks in pasture. In Finland them roam as wild in the woods and fields (and causing a number of collisions with cars when exceeding the road) They are close even to the populated area.
    Fortunately, I have not seen often close to them, only far from the road.
    Your photos are lovely.
    Have a nice weekend.

    The seal was another fun photo!
    Have a great Saturday!

  11. Excellent photos on the critters... it must be wonderful staying at those cabins and get hold to beach and cool breeze. I love barns, and this is pretty one in the presence of grazing herd of elks!

  12. Good Morning Eileen. You really captured the feel for a windy day with the heron - he looks a little blown away. Great to see the elks and it's good to hear that you were able to stop the car for the pictures. It's very frustrating when I see something to photograph but there's a car hanging on to my back bumper.

    Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for allowing me to join in today.

  13. Dearest Eileen; Oh, great post again♪ The first 'wind ruffled heron'made me wish to take pictures like yours some day. High possibility (^_^)彡☆
    The barn and elk scenes are breathtaking and the luck is for us as well, Dear friend. And the wild seal resting on the marina pier is fascinating to see; as long as safe for people p:-)
    Thank you SO much for hosting great link and wonderful post♡♡♡ 

    Sending Lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my Dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*

  62. Great photography. Such a variety of animals. Thanks for hosting and stopping by my blog.

    ReplyDelete
  63. Dogs on the beach are great to look at and admirable companions no doubt, but I was on a beach in Maine a couple of years ago which was littered with dog poop from end to end. I guess some owners are not very responsible.

    ReplyDelete
  64. That seal looks ginormous! Am I the only one afraid of seals now? Seriously.

    The elk! WOW!

    ReplyDelete
  65. I confess I had this fleeting thought, 'rare to see a barn from Eileen'. But when you found one it was unique---elk. Love it. Happy Day.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Love the elk photo!!! We had them in our back yard in when I was growing up...in Colorado. Love to hear them.

    Your greater white fronted geese are showing up a lot here in Texas....but I haven't seen any yet....only heard reports through emails. Lucky you.

    Thanks for linking up at I'd Rather B Birdin' this weekend Eileen.

    ReplyDelete
  67. I love the ruffled up Heron in the first image. You certainly captured a variety of photos while you were in the Olympic area.

    ReplyDelete
  68. No elk around here so unusual to see them, they are lovely to look at are the peaceful animals they appear so.

  69. I've been living in Washington for 22 years, Eileen, and have never seen elk here, so I appreciate your photos and traveling expertise. They are interesting in the field with the barn, I like the shot with the antlers and little one together.

    ReplyDelete
  70. Great Elk (and barn) pictures! And that restaurant in Neah Bay has to be one of the most wonderful bird blinds ever! Great shots and I assume a nice meal along with the photo-ops! Pretty sweet.

    ReplyDelete
