Saturday's Critters # 437

 Welcome to Saturday's Critters!

Hello and happy Saturday!

 If you love all God's creatures like I do and also like to blog about them and take critter photos this is where you can share your critter post. 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!


Wow, Goodbye April.  The days and months are flying by. I am sharing some archived critters and photos from my travels.

Do you have a caption for any of these photos?



1.  Listen, I am talking to you! Laughing Gulls @ Curacao




2. Are you feeling crabby today?  Curacao 2012




3.  Family dining together. Find a spot to sit, dinner is served.  Bananaquit, Curacao 2012





4. Breakfast leftovers, we are gathering the crumbs of happiness. Curacao Bananaquit, Yellow Warbler, House Sparrow





5. Flamingos, Curacao Salt Flats. There is a stranger among us! 





6. Be Different, Harlequin Ducks with Heermann's Gulls.  Ediz Hook, Port Angeles Washington.  

I heard there was a sighting of a Heermann's Gull at the Baltimore Harbor recently, it reminded me of my sighting of this gull during one of our Washington State trips. 





7. Just chatting, our old dog Daisy talking with our Lop bunny Snowball. 





8. Our old dogs, Sunshine "I can hear you now"  and Daisy  "Lift your butt I smell something."  Shenandoah NP. 




9.  Daisy telling Sunshine, come on in the water feels good.
