This is my contribution to Karma’s June Photo Scavenger Hunt. I’m glad that I had it done early and the hunt took us to a different part of town and new places such as Riverbend park, we’ll definitely have to go back and visit. I hope you will join the Photo Scavenger Hunt and the deadline is June 25, 2011.
- a colorful bird of your choice. This is my sister pet Lovebird.
- a grad – of any sort. I was hoping to photograph my nephew who recently graduated from High School but it looks like I won’t be seeing him in time for this assignment deadline. Instead, I photographed a portrait of Lee’s Pre-K graduating class of 2007.
- a dad – of any sort, and they are everywhere.
- something purple, a water plant from my fishpond.
- a butterfly, I went to Riverbend Park and was hoping to find some butterflies there. I had no luck and found the
humming-beehummingbird moth instead, I don’t think this will pass as a butterfly.
Since this is s not sufficed for the hunt, I decided to search my archive photo from my visit to the Butterfly Exhibit last year. It’s too bad that they don’t have the exhibit again this year, hopefully they’ll bring it back next year.
- a funny face, I asked Lee for her interpretation of a funny face and this is what she gave me.
And for the BONUS: a cow, bull, heifer, calf or ox. Extra bonus points for Karma’s favorite, the belted galloway. I know the belted galloway is out of the question for me. Bo told me he saw a beautiful cow by the Prison where he went fishing with his friend several weeks back, I thought this could be interesting. It was a long scenic drive and we passed many farmlands and finally came to the prison, I saw a statue of a cow, not sure if this will work. It’s not going Moo Moo at all, Lee thought it was a sheep since it’s white.
On the way back we passed a farmland and I asked Bo to stop the car. I got out and walked around, the cows were curious and kept a close eye on me. I raised my camera to eye level and the cows started to take off running. I guess it’s the telephoto lens that scared them off, I just want to shoot some picture, not shooting them.
They kept a watchful eye on me the whole time. I’m not sure which, it’s either they were posing for my camera or they were thinking that I’m armed and dangerous, click, click!
