Slim Pickings for Saturday Critters

This week hasn't been great for animal pictures because we've been busy with other things. Here's a trail cam picture of geese. The color was so far off that I converted it to black and white.

I've got some fake animals for you, starting with this little dog statue. 

Here's a toy raccoon, followed by a snapshot I took of a wooden pig. 

I did find a grasshopper on a marigold.

Also I saw deer along Skyline Drive but they turned away before I raised my camera. 


  1. Hello,
    Cute shot of the geese and sweet deer. I like the dog statue, stuffed raccoon and the piggie. Do grasshoppers eat flowers? Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Take care, happy Sunday. Have a great new week!

  2. There are times when critters are just stuffed animals we run into. Have a happy Sunday, stay safe!

  3. Beautiful images!

  4. The dog seems the embodiment of the Zen riddle: "Does a little dog have the Buddha nature?" I guess this one does, as he seems to be sitting in meditation.
