The World is FULL of Negative Space!
First of all, I'd like to Thank Ashton for this challenge. It's one that I think a number of us Listen Up! (myself definitely) had to think about. So, I started looking around Chucky and trying to find some of the things that you defined so well.
Sometimes things just have to almost jump out at you Bag to get your attention. But then, I decided that I could relax a little Bench enjoy the scenery a little, Turtles and then get back in the game Batter . After all, it only has to be as confusing as we make it Underbrush ,,,,, Right?
So, here's a couple that I came up with, that I think work for this. Thanks for looking!
Snapping Turtle Parardise
Guess what I got out for a bit today. Of course it was to take my son to a appointment but we made the best of it. It was a rainy morning and after his appointment we stopped to check out the nature path near the creek. It was still raining but only drizzle at the time. We parked the Van and went to the bridge.
My son found something very cool and this is the photo story of this finding.
My son is old enough to what is going on here. lol!
Enjoy and smile for the snapping turtles in Love. ;)
All photos were taken with my Nikon 70-300 VR lens.
(I am sorry but I tried to do the slide show for this and again I could not get it to work. I have done slide shows befor and had no problems. Whats up)
My day with the manantees
Today I took a group to Crystal River Fla so they could swim with the manantees (sea cow) I did not go swiming with the group this time , but stayed on shore. But with camera in hand I caught some interesting photos. Posting them all on this story.

Going on vacation...
Not happy to get his pic taken
Not much action here Had to throw in awww factor
Back to Goose Lake Prarie
I didn't want to get too close and upset her or because she's a snapping turtle and they can move pretty quick, I stayed back out of self preservation. For me this was a first. I've seen turtles lay eggs on TV, never thought to see it in person!
Also, thank you goes out to everyone who helped with thier tips on setting my camera for the speed shots. It definately made a difference last night and I'm not sure but I thought I saw wildman last night! J/K
We went fishing this afternoon, and I was just walking around and spotted this fella. Anybody got a clue what kind he is? He was rather large and didn't scurry away when I was taking his pic.....he was kinda strange looking, though.....thanks in advance for helping me.......
Hope y'all enjoy!
Up the Creek
After Sea World we go to the domestic animals, my personal favorite, Anubis, my kitty and Coconut, my fiance's kitty. Here is them being shy, Coconut had some knotts in her fur and wasn't thrilled about getting a hair cut. Here's Coconut looking at something, curious. And Anubis doing what he does best.
And now a trip to the beach where for some reason there was a large number of sea clams, and later that night there was a jellyfish, kinda startling since we set up 'camp' for surf fishing right behind there.
Now back to Colorado where we met Guiness at the wolf santuary. And at the Mountain Zoo we met some sleepy river otters, a little monkey, and a hippo. Back at the Royal Gorge there were some natives a buffalo, and an elk.
And that concludes todays lesson. Enjoy.
