May Photo Scavenger Hunt


1 - Good Things

One Saturday I strolled through the Village Farmer's Market, and stopped in my tracks when I spotted a scrumptious rack of baked goods.  I love these berry and custard Danishes ~ and take big bites out of them!  Perhaps it would have been healthier to avert my eyes and focus on the fresh vegetables!


2 - Small Packages


Small is a relative term...and in the big scheme of things, this bundle of small packages were being hoisted out of the water as I looked on.




3 - Fragrance


There were so many delightful garden scents throughout May, especially emanating for my lilac tree, however my Magnolia Susan was the fragrant choice for the month.




4 - Station


Here's a Personal Float Device Station for children who need to wear safety devices when boating.





5 - Nose


Nose, beak...This crow was taking great notice and being nosy about whatever was going on around him.

6 - Front Page

Once I learned where the 'Good Things' (see #1) were baked, I went calling.  There was a pile of newspapers on a shelf in the bakery, with a few front pages on top.



7 - Nine

You may have seen my video of the ducklings in my previous post.  There were nine of them :)  How perfect is that?  All of them finally made it up onto the bank to gather around Mother Duck on our visit on Mother's Day. Doesn't she look like she's smiling proudly? Can you find nine little ducklings?


8 - Beverage

Water!  My beverage of choice.  I took a photo, also on Mother's Day, of my glass of water in front of my delicious supper.


9 - Currency

Although money doesn't grow on trees,  here's a spot to buy some currency...at a cost!


10 - Historic

An old anchor has found itself up on dry land after being seeped in history.



11 - Yellow

I took so many yellow photos during May, but chose these illuminated tulips :)



12 - Do you see what I see?

Little hummingbirds flit and dart so that sometimes only a beak, wing or tail feather is visible.


Oh, there it is!




Our weather, which has been quite glorious, has suddenly opted to re-visit March!  We are in for a few days of 13 degree rainy stuff.  Hopefully June will put in a good word and brighten things up again :)

  3. Really love the hummingbird! I've tried so many times, and never have caught one in a photo (recognizable, anyway). I also wanted to do ducks or geese with little ones, but never found the right number!! These are all great entries.

    1. Thanks Deb. Hummingbirds can be tricky to photograph, so it is a treat when one stays around long enough... keep on trying :) It was my brother who pointed out there were nine ducklings - then a little light flicked on in my head - scavenger hunt!

  6. I smiled as I saw your "small" packages. Yes, I suppose sizing is all relative! Those darling ducklings, mama certainly looks pleased with them. Love the colour of your magnolia -- I didn't realize they emitted a scent! We're "cooling" off here, too, though to the low 70s down from the low 80s. Yours sound like a for-real cooling off with rain to boot. I guess "cool" is relative, too.

    1. Hi Nikki ~ I enjoyed your comment :) Yes, I guess everything is relative ~ I'd like to see the size of the ducklings now and I bet it's much easier for them to hop back up on land. My magnolia has quite a strong scent, but just about over now. I'll take your 70 temperatures please :)

  7. A lovely post! Interesting photos as always, and I especially like the crow 'mug shots', the duck & ducklings, the hummingbird and the tulips.
    It's been a good week but typically it's a long holiday weekend and looks like being wet on Sunday and Monday.

  8. Another brilliant selection Glo. How do you think them all out? Ahhhh, haven't had a Danish pastry for ages but I could taste yours just looking at it. Just the season for Awwwwws as well. Love the ducklings.

    1. Thanks John. One of the enjoyable aspects of these photo hunts is looking through my photos and finding ones that will fit the category that I hadn't actually planned. For instance, during May I took a photo of the train station and an old train that I was planning on using, however, my small camera is hiding somewhere in this house and I was unable to retrieve the photos. Instead I looked through the photos I had already downloaded and found the PFD Station and the old anchor! Re the Danish pastries, I usually buy a few and quickly stick them in the freezer when I get home so I'm not as tempted. I've found out that frozen Danish pastries taste really good ;)

    1. Thanks Louise ~ I was very delighted to realize that there were nine ducklings - they fit into the category perfectly. Hopefully they will now be big enough to get up to their Mother without it being such a challenge!

  14. Your photos are so wonderful and you were so lucky with the ducklings! As I was taking other photos during the month and couldn't find anything that added up to 9! I also loved your packages and the crow such a good photo of the nose.

  15. Nine ducklings is such a lucky find! We have nothing so exotic as a hummingbird sadly, although I am not sure I would have the patience to take a good photo! Ellen x

    1. Thanks Ellens52! Yes, I was thrilled to find 9 ducklings for this photo hunt...and the hummingbirds are fun to watch ~ they especially love red flowers so I try and have a variety around the garden as well as the feeder.
