365 challenge -- the letter m {314}

Today's theme ... the letter mMoose, I finally shot a moose!  Today my husband and I traveled to Jackson, Wyoming for our annual winter photo safari.  We try and make it to Jackson several times a year and we have found that winter is the best time for wild life.  Over the past two years we have not been able to spot a moose.  Today, our first day in the area, we were able to see three!  Here are just a couple of the shots. (PS don't be surprised if the next few shots are from the same area.  So much fun stuff to see and shoot.)

365 challenge -- critters {63}

Today's theme ... critters.  This small ground squirrel attacked the bird feeder.  He's become quite fond of the bird feeder and spends most of his day collecting seeds.  He does allow the birds to eat but as soon as they're off he's back on  it.  Silly, silly squirrel.

365 challenge -- family {96}

Today's theme ... familyI just looked out the back window and we had several deer beyond the back fence and as I looked over towards our garden, I found this family.  I used a lower aperture so the doe and fawn are not as sharp as the back of the buck's head.  As I went to change the settings on the camera the group of deer were spooked.

Happy New Year -- 365 Photo Challenge

This year I have challenged myself to participate in 365 Photo Challenge 2011.  The challenge is to stick to the theme and take pictures that fit into one of the 365 categories given.  There are 52 "wild card" entries that can be substituted for one of the given themes.

I'm excited for the challenge, and I'm already behind as I didn't have the camera out today to tackle day one of the challenge. For those of you that are interested in the theme list, click here.

Feel free to check back often to see my progress in the 365 Photo Challenge 2011.
