Saturday's Critters #130

Saturday's Critters #130

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.

I had a nice break, the week just flew by. I am sharing some backyard birds and critters from in or around my yard. I seem to find some kind of critter everywhere I look.


A cute Carolina Wren!


Our pond frog.


A Swallowtail butterfly


Ruby-throated Hummingbird.



A neighborhood deer seen during one of my walks on the fire road.

As always thanks for the visits and the nice comments. I also thank everyone who is linking up and sharing their critters.. Happy Saturday, have a great weekend!

    Sometimes a break from the blog can be very nice :)

    Beautiful photos, and I admire The Swallowtail butterfly! How beautiful it is. I saw it on a norwegian blog the other day, but I have never seen it here.

  30. Good morning Eileen, What a great capture of the Hummingbird! They move around so quickly when they visit here, I can't imagine getting a shot like that. Cute frog in his own little setting and your walk along the Fire Road proves critter filled again. Enjoy your weekend.

  78. Hello, I saw you on my friend Karen's blog, Beatrice Euphemie. You take wonderful pictures. I decided to comment on this post because the hummingbird is my beloved bird. I noticed that you like bird watching. I love it as well, and just did a post recently about the mourning dove. I see them often around here. Me and my daughters also love photography. We have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow, and I would certainly come back and follow you as well. It's nice to meet new friends in blog land. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day.
