Link up your post and share your critters, join in with my critter party ! You can share any kind of critters the real ones, pretend ones, statues and paintings, a new or old post!
For my 10th blog anniversary I thought I would share some of my favorite birds & critters photos from previous post over the years. I created mosaics so there will not be too long of a photo post. I have added many lifers to my list during the past 10 years and during my travels.
Thank you to all my visitors, I have enjoyed visiting your blogs as much as I enjoy making my own post.
I am trying to share these in date order, but all photos will be from 2009-2019. Please click on images for larger viewing.
I also included links back to each individual post or you can click on any of the various labels I have on my side bar.
