Donna's Personal Photo Challenge: Animals

Hello friends!
It's time once again for Donna's Personal Photo Challenge.
~
This month, our mission is to photograph animals.
Many of us pet lovers who also blog already do this on a regular basis, don't we?
 ~
I have introduced you to my babies a couple of other times and since they live with me,
I have more opportunities to take pics of them than any other animals...
...except my human animal who is my hubby...lol!
Some of these were actually taken a few years back, pre blog days.

(All photos were taken with my Sony Cybershot P&S)
  

Here is my oldest boy, Hunter, that I snapped a couple of years ago at the cabin.
This is his "mascot pose"...he no doubt is checking out the surrounding landscape for deer...
...or anything else that moves.

(brightening and and softening edits by Picasa)

 

He always has his nose to the wind to get a whiff of ...well, something.
~
Oscar, on the other hand, can be a challenge since he is a ball of energy.
Every now and again, I get a lucky shot or two...in the rare moments when he is resting.


Like most of our furry babies, Oscar loves to bask in the sun.

I love this pic of him taken when he was just a few months old back in 2009.
He looks so sweet and innocent, don't you think?

Cheating a bit here and including these..."painted" in BeFunky's watercolor effect.



I see an oil painting rather than a watercolor...but I do like the effect.

Thanks for allowing me to bore you share my babies with you again :)
So...until next month....have a great weekend, everyone!
