A few more for the Scavenger Hunt!

As you will have seen, Penny and I went out last Sunday and Monday for my birthday and I was able to tick off a few more items from the list!

 7. A sign that is intentionally or unintentionally funny
The names of these turkeys tickled me! Penny and I both thought it was a bit rotten to call them that!
9. A photo with someone or something that is clearly out of place or doesn't belong
I had already done this photo, but I loved the fact that at Tropical Wings all the sparrows were flying into the cages and drinking and eating the parrots' food - they were definitely out of place!
10. A bench that is outside
This was taken on our walk along the River Chelmer at Paper Mill Lock.
11. An animal in a zoo, aquarium, nature preserve, etc.
There were so many photos I could choose from, but I loved this one of the lemur.
 12. A cloud in the shape of something (please specify what you see)
Hopefully you can see an elephant's head - his trunk and then below that a tusk! This was taken in our back garden early yesterday evening - Hugh spotted it and I ran inside to grab the camera. I was just in time as it started to break up just after I had taken the photo.

13. A fence
This was taken at Tropical Wings and you can just see a guinea pig in the corner!
I have created a new page which you can find at the top of my blog to which I will copy all my Scavenger Hunt photos so that they can all be found in one place. Having great fun looking for all these items!
Rinda has created a linky post today, which you can find here where people are linking up with the photos they have found so far. Do hop on over and have a look at what other people have found :)

Some great catches....I really need to get started on mine.

Karen said...

Great finds. The cloud is great. I need to start paying attention to them.

Sian said...

I think I see a crouching dragon in that cloud. That's one I need to start looking for..you think round here there would be plenty of cloud choice!

Ring tail lemurs are one of my fav animals to sit and watch at the zoo. They love to play and are always entertaining. That is the one prompt that I don't think I will get and will have to substitute, unless we win tickets to the zoo or aquarium. The only other option would be a pet store, but I don't think that really counts :)

Great scavenger hunt photos Becky! I especially like the lemur - looks like its ready to jump.

Great photos Becky, I am scanning the skies for an elephant - yours was clear!

Julie Kirk said...

I'm struggling to spot anything in the clouds so well done you! And I think the sparrows are adorable in their own modest, beige way! :-)

I did lol at the turkey's names, snigger. Funnily enough I was also going to do an elephant cloud but it had gone by the time I rushed outside! Got another one though :)

Ring Tailed Lemurs are always such fun to watch. Wookie named all of our farm game animals similar names... He convinced Princess her plastic sheep should be be donor, kebab, shish and mint.

That is a well spotted elephant! And Yes, bit of,a cruel joke on the poor turkeys :(. You are racing ahead with your photos!

Textile Recycler said...

got the elephant for sure!

Sandie said...

I recognise so many of these places you have taken photos Becky! Good finds :)
I like your tab at the top of your page. This is something I want to set up but put off thinking it will take me time I don't have. I will have to investigate further.
Have fun with the rest of the photo hunt.

Gail said...

Yes I see the elephant! Good going. I'll have to investigate how to make up a page for my photos on my typepad blog.

Nice idea for the page to collect them all together.
