Nature Photography: Soft, Furry, and Hard

There is just something about seeing a wild animal crawling through your yard that screams PHOTOGRAPH!

I have two photography passions – nature photography and food photography.

nature photographed soft shell turtle

This soft shell turtle was found by my husband in the middle of the interstate.  Because his shell is the texture of a mushroom it was getting beat up pretty badly from the cars driving over him.  My husband rescued him and brought him home to monitor and clean his wounds.  Once we were sure he was going to be fine we let him go at our boat dock into the lake canal in our backyard.  He swam off and hopefully is living a long, happy life in the lake.

This little guy is adorable.  I fell in love with him when I went to our community garden party this past weekend.

nature photographed armadillo

This little fellow was as soft as can be and gentle too.  Not at all what I was expected from an Armadillo.

Did you know that an Armadillo can carry leprosy?

  7. I can’t believe you handled all of those! That’s so great that you saved the turtle. He has such an odd looking head. I was glad you said what he was because I couldn’t figure it out! He just doesn’t look like a turtle. Great pictures!

    The turtle has a very odd snout. Nature is so interesting and your photos are really professional looking.

  18. Oh my! That armadillo is crazy looking. I’ve never seen one up close. They always remind me of Steel Magnolias.
