the critter post

In my adventures, I take a lot of pictures of places, plants, humans, and animals. In today's post, I am sharing some of my pictures of animals that I've taken in the past few years. I've taken them here at home and on my midwestern walks with Voices for Creative Nonviolence. They've ranged in size from garden snails to horses. Below are some of the images of the critters of my world.

I hope that you enjoyed the critters. What sort of critters do you like the best?

Love the critter photos. My favorite critter is probably the butterfly, or the hummingbird, or the blue bird, the cows in the pasture, or, or, or. Yes, I like critters.

Wonderful collection! Like Nita, I like ALL the critters, but I'm partial to the dogs and cats. :)
