Camera Critters - Collection

I thought I would do a collection of the critters I capture but don't always post because they get pushed aside for something else I want to post. These are some of the little critters I photographed in my outings the past week or two.


Butterflies from the Butterfly Pavillion at the Natural History Museum in Los Angeles.


A rabbit at Descanso Gardens in La Canada/Flintridge above. A bird outside the greenhouse at the Huntington Museum, Library & Botanical Gardens.


Birds at Descanso Gardens.


I can't remember where this interesting little lady bug was from.


And my most favorite capture of a critter this week goes to this poor little lost doggy that some poor kid left behind at the Huntington Museum & Botanical Gardens. He was just standing there on the post standing guard in the Japanese Garden.


If you're not tired of my critters you should see the cute little baby ducks in the post below this one. And if you're really not tired of critters,check out more Camera Critters by clicking on the icon below:

The ladybug rocks! Your first Butterfly looks like a Gulf Fritillary your second looks like a Tiger Swallowtail (cannot tell if it is the Western or not need to see the whole backside) lovely shots there!

Great macros! Love the ladybug, that's one bug I haven't been able to capture! I never seem to have a camera when I see one!

A great collection of critters. You must have a great deal of patience while waiting to photograph these various animals.

Steve B said...

We all have the same problem, great shots get pushed aside because other shots come in. These are some great shots and I'm glad you have shown them.

The gold of that butterfly is so radiant and beautiful!

And the rest are all so delightfully cute!

Ebie said...

Love the narrative of the lost doggy. As usual you capture your subjects very well.

Pagan Sphinx said...

What an incredible selection of critter shots you've amassed for this post. I adore the orange of the butterfly or moth - what an amazing capture you have there!

Karen said...

Beautiful closeups!!!

You almost want to take that doggy home !! It would be nice to think that it was reunited with it's young owner..

Thankyou so much for your encouraging words re my husband's job hunting... it means a lot.
