Lens Artists Photo Challenge # 225 – Wildlife Close to Home

In this challenge Anne asks us: ”From squirrels to birds, wildlife is around us. What non-domestic animals live in your neighborhood or nearby?”

The salt marsh, salt water creeks, rivers and the Atlantic Ocean attract an abundance of wildlife close to my home in coastal Georgia. Whether on the beach, in the waterways, in my neighborhood, or in my own back yard I am grateful to be able to see such a variety of wildlife.

    1. Thank you so much! I am so grateful to live where I can see these beautiful creatures. The Roseate Spoonbills have only been coming to this area for a few years. I used to have to travel to Florida to see them. They are my favorite.

  1. What a treat to have bottlenose so close. It would be fun to sit on the beach and look for them. I love the diversity of wildlife you have in Georgia. The birds of prey were my favorite. Nice collection.

  2. Well Beth, as usual you and I share common wildlife so much so that we could often exchange our posts and no one would be any the wiser!! Especially loved your insect images this week. The two striped caterpillars are fabulous and I loved the grasshopper on the pink flower! Your dolphin image is wonderful as well.
