Scavenger Hunt Sunday 3-11-12



Scavenger Hunt Sunday
Did you miss me last week? I skipped yet another week (2nd one this year) because truthfully, I just was not inspired by the prompts last week. I know, I should have at least tried to complete the hunt. After all, it is good to have your creativity challenged and all that happy stuff! I promise, I will try harder next time!
We have had a VERY mild winter this year in Wisconsin. A week ago last Friday we got 6+ inches of snow, 3 days later it was in the 60's! Haredly makes any sense at all. Because of Mother Natures mood swings, you will see some pictures with snow, and some without and bright and sunny. I am not complaining! While we are in between seasons, not really Winter, but not really spring either, I am getting so anxious for permanent warm weather with bugs, butterflies and GREEN! I absolutely cannot wait. I dont think I will ever be home when its warm. Anyway, enough of my rambling. Here are the prompts for this weeks Scavenger Hunt!

1. WATER
2. LIGHT
3. CHOCOLATE
4. ANIMAL
5. CROWDED
WATER
Canadian Goose on the freezing water.

LIGHT

I thought the way the light was dancing off the water in the background of this shot was so cool!

CHOCOLATE
Time to make some chocolate chip cookies!

ANIMAL
This hawk hovered over me and let me take several shots of it before it flew away! Lately I see hawks where ever I go! 

CROWDED
The trees and telephone wires are crowded with birds! I love the expression on the bigger birds face. It looks like he is enjoying the sun as much as I am!

Well, there you have it! I hope you have a wonderful week. Check back next week for the next edition of Scavenger Hunt Sunday! I can't wait!!

Oh my, I love the bokeh in the background of your one shot. Such sparkle!

Your light shot is really great! I wasn't exactly sure what it was in the background that was sparkling....the fact that it is the shimmer of water does make it even more amazing.

Nicely done! Welcome back. I too struggled with last week's prompts, and read several other bloggers who didn't love them either. Nice bokeh in your light shot. Have a great week.

I had an eagle fly over me today... nice and low... it was stunning... oh... and snow was falling at the same time! (not that I love snow & cold anymore)... anyway... I did not catch him on film... but your picture of that hawk gave me the same feeling when I looked at it! ;) ya know? ;)

lovely light picture too!!
