Wild Things: Week 13 Photo Challenge

We all had a much easier time with this week's photo prompt.  

A visit to the zoo wasn't required. We all found some form of "wild" animal for our photos this week.  

Calling bunnies wild doesn't really seem to work.  At any rate, this guy and a buddy are regulars, they like the rose hips from the rose bushes. 

You know it's fall around here when you start seeing and hearing the geese in the skies.  This is the first week My Guy only had one photograph to choose from.  He tangled with a dog last week while out on a bike ride and he fell pretty hard. Thankfully nothing is broken, but he's been moving really slowly this week. 

The Scientist in Training's wild thing this week is a Sphinx Moth (also know as a Hawk Moth or Hummingbird Moth). She was worried that it didn't really count as a wild thing, but I think rounds out the series this week.  Between the three of us we've got representatives across the animal kingdom, mammals, birds and insects.  

This week's challenge is an easy subject, but may be hard to get an interesting photo.  

There is lots of potential subject matter, but how do you get an interesting photograph?  What would you do?

I love seeing whatever wildlife there is in cities! Your family photographs capture them so well. Those sphynx moths are really fascinating. We did think one was a hummingbird one time, until we were able to see him up close! Great photos. Hope your guy feels better soon.

Some lovely "wild things" photos. The deer and turkeys have abandoned our back yard, leaving the bunnies to rule again.

Items of clothing made me think of a favorite worn out . . . hat, shoe, jacket. You know - that item that really should be thrown away, but it's too comfortable to let go. LOL Or maybe something vintage.

Sorry, Kate (and SIT) I LOVE those flying geese!!!

It's hard to capture a sphynx moth in motion, so SIT wins my vote this week. And certainly all the bunnies in my yard are 'wild' things. Geese flying overhead here, too.

These are beautiful! I love that you all ended up with a different species.

All three of the photos are beautiful. I especially like the migrating geese. I saw them today, but was too slow to catch the photo.

Great photos - we have lots of bunnies in our neighborhood too and they love the flowers. Hope your husband is feeling better too, sounds like a scary tangle.
