Koala Grip

The koala has opposable thumbs and toes to allow a tight grip when climbing. They also have rough pads on the undersurface of their hands and feet to increase tractions while they climb. That is fascinating, but my favorite thing about koalas is that they take a good photo.  See imagesbyvandyne on etsy.com for more…

Bath or Shower?

Are you a shower person or bath person? To me the difference is related to how you approach problems. Would you rather:  quickly wash troubles down the drain? let them melt away in a soothing tub of water? What choice do you think our cardinal friend prefers?  See imagesbyvandyne on etsy.com for more photos.

Water Aerobics

Aquatic exercise uses the natural buoyancy and resistance of water to provide a safe, full-body workout. Sometimes, I wonder if the inspiration for water aerobics came from watching animals. I wish I could have been underwater with a waterproof camera, but I had to take this photo through a glass wall.  See imagesbyvandyne on etsy.com…

Chicken, Not Scared

I didn’t expect to take a photo of a chicken, but this one seemed to have something to say, “I don’t frighten easily. Why do people use the word, ‘chicken’ to describe someone who is afraid? Personally, I think they should say, ‘scaredy cat’ instead.” See imagesbyvandyne on etsy.com for more photos.

Howling at the Moon

When my camera saw this, I chuckled. It seemed this otter thought he was a canine howling at the moon. Have you ever howled at the moon? If so, did it make you feel better?  See imagesbyvandyne on etsy.com for more photos.

Monarch Caterpillar

High on my list of fun things to photograph are butterflies. Sometimes, I go out looking for them before they arrive. Instead, I find caterpillars. I wonder if they have a clue about what their future holds. It is a remarkable transformation process.  See imagesbyvandyne on etsy.com for more photos.

When I saw the expression on this cheetah’s face, it seemed to suggest he was guilty and pretending to be innocent.  See imagesbyvandyne on etsy.com for more photos.

Hit the Snooze Button

It isn’t just animal activity that captures my camera’s attention. Sometimes, it’s something that relates to my life. In this case, it made me wish that I could hit the snooze button more often.  See imagesbyvandyne on etsy.com for more photos.
