Saturday's Critters #1


December 7, 2013

First I must say, I am not taking over Misty Dawn's Camera Critters .. I thought just maybe there are enough followers and animals lovers to go around for the both of us.. This is my first attempt at using the linky tool and starting my own meme..I hope it all goes smoothly. Please let me know if you are having any problems or need help.  I love animals of any kind and I am looking forward to seeing everyone's post.



A cute deer seen during our visit to Cape Henlopen State Park, Delaware last weekend.


A row of American Black Ducks

A Brown Thrasher seen at the Prime Hook NWR in Delaware.


 I hope to see everyone join in on the critter party and link up your blog sharing your cute critters. Any kind of critter will do. Also, I hope everyone will take some time and visit with some of the other bloggers linking up....... I will be a little busy today, it is my son's 21st birthday..... Time to celebrate.... I will be making time to visit everyone that links up.

I am so happy you joined in on  my Critter party....I hope to see you linking up again..

 Thanks for stopping by and  I wish everyone a happy weekend.
 To see more beautiful birds and cute critters

Also please visit:  I'd-Rather-B-Birdin. Thanks to the gracious host: Anni of I'd Rather-B-birdin.

Good luck with this meme. I too think that this venture is good and strong enough to have BOTH critter memes.

Hello Eileen
Congratulations on the first week of your new critter party. I'm hoping you can help identify or confirm backyard birds I'll share in future links.
I like the deer, ducks and thrasher you've captured.
Have a good weekend.

Well done Eileen!
Your deer looks very "hairy", it probably means you will have a cold winter!
I have added my link too, a great idea!
Cheers, enjoy your WE!

I need to figure out how to do the linky stuff now :)

Al said...

Several nice critters here. I always like seeing deer, we didn't see them growing up in a city.

Our photos said...

Beautiful photos, Eileen!

Nancy J said...

Eileen, I hopped to you from Karen, at Pixel Posts, congrats on this, and the engagement, we had the same celebration with our younger daughter recently. Cheers from Jean, NZ.

Mersad said...

Amazing shots! I like nature and wildlife images.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

That deer is amazing and I am so happy you have started your own meme.

Hi, Eileen!
I just finished posting to Misty's meme, saw Hootin' Anni there, and found out from her about your new meme.
Wishing you well with it,
K

Mama Zen said...

That shot of the deer is just gorgeous!

HansHB said...

A beautiful post!

SquirrelQueen said...

What a sweet looking little deer. I love the idea of your new meme and see no reason for it to detract from Camera Critters.

I have been up to my eyes with feral cats at a spay/neuter event most of the week and haven't done a post yet. I will be joining in either later this weekend or next Saturday for sure.

betchai said...

that brown trasher look so cool

George said...

I think you did a great job with your new meme. Your photos are wonderful.

JoAnn ( Scene Through My Eyes) said...

I love the photos. I'm not doing memes at all right now - just a decision fro myself - but I have to say - this is a good one and I'm really enjoying the links even if I'm not joining in. Sometimes I like to take a break and read blogs and need a good source - and this is certainly one so I'll be stopping by the read more blogs - thanks for doing this.

The happy wanderer. said...

Good luck with it all, Eileen. A good first post.

katerchen said...

Irma said...

First picture is totally awesome, Eileen.
Congratulations on your son's birthday.

Anni said...

Thanks for linking up at the Bird D'Pot this weekend Eileen.

Your photos are always treasures.

Pam :) said...

Eileen, I happy to join your new adventure with Saturday's Critters #1.

The Deer is adorable and the Brown Thrasher is handsome.

Happy Birthday wishes to your son :)

Gattina said...

That's nice that you start your own meme ! Your pictures are real cute !

NatureFootstep said...

deers area always nice and the Brown Thrasher is a new one for me I think.

Tina Fariss Barbour said...

These photos take me right out into nature! We have deer in our yard quite often, but I've so far been unable to get a good photo. They come mostly at night, and they always hear me coming out the door, it seems. :-) Love the brown thrasher, too--his colors blend so well with his surroundings.

I found this meme through TexWis Girl's blog. So glad to find it and your blog! I'm a new follower, and I hope I can join in on your meme next week.

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi Eileen, Lovely pictures. I like your line of Black Ducks a lot. I sure miss seeing the Winter migrant ducks now that I don't live at the lake. Have a great coming week!

me (maria) said...

Eileen I am so sorry...I am afraid I made a big mistake and I don' t know how to fix it!!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Nice photos! And a great turnout for your first meme. I hope to join in the fun when I can. Have a nice Sunday!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I'll be at your party next week Eileen!! Wow your son is all grown-up, Happy bd to him.

deb @ frugal little bungalow said...

Late to the party! :) But I noticed that my post, which would be the last one..just went to number one instead...not sure if that is a problem or how you had it set up but you said that if we noticed anything to let you know :)

I will play catch up in a bit on some of the links : )

Leora said...

Three very different critters! All are wonderful. Good luck with the meme.

Saun said...

Saun said...

Good luck with your new Meme! Critters of all kinds are my favorite blog fodder.

Anne (cornucopia) said...

Wonderful photos!

Our Neck of the Woods said...

I love the row of ducks! So cute. What a fun new meme! I linked up my post from today with photos of Duchess and her snowy snout :)

KL said...

Do they have to be critters seen only on Saturday? Or could it be that I have seen them other days but posting on your meme on Sunday?

Helma said...

Rosse a mockingbird I've never really seen. I had never even heard of it too. Very nice to see them :-)
Fun is also your deer and your black sea ducks :-)

Funny also through the pictures on another blog or her to come and be able to watch the animals

edenhills said...

Your animal photos are always spectacular!

Chris Rohrer said...

Where do you get the time to do this all AND bird AND work a full time job!!???? Good for you!
