Manz's Photo Collections

Golden Oldies…

I’ve been so busy this week that I didn’t even think about my camera, let alone pick it up and snap some photos.

Therefore, this weeks camera critter post is a selection of critter photos taken on various occasions – before digital cameras. On each occasion, I had to capture what I saw with one frame of film… the cows took off on a stampede; the spider ran into the darkness; and the pelicans and gulls dispersed incredibly quickly.

  4. You scared them all away! However, one frame was all you needed. Excellent shots!

    Hmm, I think your post on my last week’s Camera Critters got lost in the dark tunnels of blogland. I do, however, remember seeing your invitations on other blogs. I’m guessing I should send you an image 120×80 pixels, and the name of the blog will appear below the image…much like how you have your Camera Critters post index arranged.

  12. Those a great shots !!

    When you enlarge that 1st photo, that front cow has definitely got a wild-eyed look !!

    That’s one big spider and the pelican photo is cool !! Looks like they’re trying to out talk each other :-)

    I’m agreeing with a comment that you made in another post … I really need to get a macro lens for my camera. There are some great ones on CC this week !

  14. I love cows and pelicans. But that spider would scare the pants off me. Thanks for stopping by mine. :)

  15. I wonder if you use the digital camera would they stay on longer? No, I do not think the technology is that advanced yet. But I am glade you got nice photos. I did took quite a lot of shots in sequence and chose the best ones for my myna photos. I did not even know that I got the one that it was just about to take off. This is the advantage of digital. It does not matter how many you took, they were all free.

  16. That’s a huge spider ain’t it?? I wouldn’t even dare to be near it..

  17. Well, you certainly did a great job at capturing it all in one shot!

    The last shot is my favorite – I’ve never seen such a sight!

  18. Thanks for visiting and commenting everyone.

    Just to be clear, that’s not my thumb near the spider – which is a huntsman spider. It was a task to just keep my focus on the little critter in order to take the photo. I grew up with such a phobia! I’m finally over that – mostly 😉

  19. Manz! Take that spider of because i die of fear! Brrr!! I’m afraid only of heights and spiders. I don’t go too up and in basement! Too up because i will-! Brrr!-fall and in basement because i will- Oh God!- meet a spider! Coward fears, don’t you think?… That’s me. Bell
