Which one flies?

I don’t know about you, but before digital photography I was accumulating a vast collection of photo albums, whereas now I only do up a photo album for major, life changing experiences like my trip to Europe.  I have mixed feelings about this.  On the one hand, it is really nice to sit side by side with someone and flip through old photo albums, and I think people are afraid that if all of their photos are digital they will never look at them. However, let’s face it.  There is only so much room in a home for photo albums, especially if you take as many photos as I do and can’t decide which ones you like the best.  Personally, I still look through my digital photos very regularly, and it’s really nice to have so many different options nowadays like emailing photos to relatives, posting them to social networking sites, creating a photobook for truly special collections, and most importantly sharing them on my blog.

I have really enjoyed going through my Science North photos over the last couple of days because I had forgotten how many interesting critters we were able to interact with.  It was truly a photographer’s dream being that up close and personal.  So, I thought I would share a few more with you.



Flying Squirrel


So, what’s up with my title today you ask?  Well, obviously the butterfly flies and the snake doesn’t, but believe it or not, the little critter in the second picture is a flying squirrel. Although I was not able to get a picture of this, they actually glide from tree to tree.  The employees at Science North all had these coats on with huge pockets, and while they were telling us all about the cute little squirrels, they were climbing all over them, in and out of the pockets, up their sleeves and down their backs.  It was hilarious!  Hope you like my little friends.

    These are great and I agree with you about having so many mediums to share photos. If not for the internet, I wouldn’t have as many family photos and such. Thanks for sharing yours. I love them although, I’m quite afraid of snakes. LOL.

    Love the squirrel…how cute! He can climb over me. The butterfly is beautiful and the snake looks like he/she has a lot on its mind.

  3. GREAT photos! Thanks for sharing! Looking forward to more!

    • Wow, thank you so much!! As you are a new follower, make sure you check out the Mystery Photo tomorrow. It happens every Friday – everyone takes a guess and then I reveal the answer on Saturday. I hope you enjoy it!!

    I have always enjoyed interaction with critters of all kinds (except for the occasional mosquito and tick) and it’s a treat to see what you’re sharing of your recent ones. I’ve had a couple of very good days at the zoo with family & friends recently, and you’ve inspired me (again) to post some of them.
