Saturday's Critters # 500 & 14th Blog Anniversary

Welcome to Saturday's Critters!

Hello and happy Saturday!

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, can you believe today is Saturday's Critters # 500.  I am  also celebrating my 14th blog anniversary which was on the 13th of July. Thanks to all who participate and love critters!  I am very thankful for all of my critter loving bloggers, some have been linking up with Saturday's Critters since the very first post on December 7, 2013. Thank you everyone!  

For this blog anniversary and # 500 Saturday's critters post, I tried to highlight some of my favorite birds and critters. Photos were taken from my Saturday's Critter posts. There is one photo for each month from the period of Dec 2013 to July 2023 in a mosaic. I did add some links to a few of the original posts.


Click on photos for larger viewing.

  20. Dear Eileen, I congratulate you on your two anniversaries! It was nice to accompany you virtually through all the years 😍. Every collage / every year tells stories about your travels, the changes, about your lived life. Even if not every experience was pleasant, it is good to be remembered in this way. And your life is full of nature and animals - I think you can't do better than that. Of course, I will continue to be a part of your Saturday Critter linky!
    All the best and have a nice weekend, Traude
