Shadow Shot Sunday #64



Once again, it is Shadow Shot Sunday (or Saturday, if you live in the U.S.), and Tracy of Hey Harriet is busy coordinating shadowy photos from all over the world.

My shadow shots today are of two creatures I have always found interesting. First, pictures I took last year of a mama turtle, on her way to lay her eggs.





Second, is a little friend I found crawling up the wall in my living room. Oh my! Your shadow makes you look so big and ferocious! She was really very small.


I like spiders. They eat less pleasant bugs, and spin such pretty webs.

Nice shadows and good choices .. the mama turtle works as an illustration to the Will Rogers post

That spider looks a bit like an ant. Pretty neat to know the turtle is on her way to lay eggs. I have never seen such a thing.

Can't you almost feel the little turtle's pain. Great shot. And speaking of pain, that spider looks as though it would have a nasty bite!

The Summer Kitchen Girls said...

Turtle seems so cute going back to lay eggs and have her retreat for awhile.

Hmmm... the 2nd one is cute though... good catch.

Happy SSS

How wonderful! The macro of the spider's shadow is amazing. Who (but you) would have 'thunk' to snap THAT one?
Hugs and blessings,

Nice pics for SSS. I like the spider one even if I don't like spiders. :)

The turtle is cute and looks so tiny in the second photo! Oh yucky spider! Eeeeeek! Nice shot though ;)

Oh nice..I love the turtle. It looks similar to the kind we have on the pond, but I have not been lucky enough to see one going to lay eggs. Also love the insect....

Crafty Green Poet said...

they're both excellent photos. I like turtles very much and ants are fascinating creatures...

SouthLakesMom said...

Wonderful turtle photos! Lovely shadows! She looks so very round -- but of course, that's her shape! I love how so many of us have sympathized with her! LOL! Now, is that an insect or an arachnid in photo #3?

Linda said...

I love the animal shadows -- what fun!

Great shots, bobbie! I wouldn't be calm though if that spider were on my living room wall... Eeeek! :)
