The Puffin Pair
While having fun at the aquarium, I ran across this cute pair of puffins! Since my friend’s birthday is coming up, this pair gave me the perfect inspiration for possible presents. You can use a photo of animal friends to create a card, use it as the cover for a scrapbook, or simply frame the picture and give it as a gift. There are many types of animals for you to photograph, along with a variety of settings-from zoos and aquariums, to your very own backyard. With a bit of patience, you’ll be able to capture the perfect pairing of animal friends!
When is a Rug not a Rug?
Answer: when it’s a comforter! Ever since I was little, my Mom would use a full/queen size comforter in lieu of a rug in my room. Why? It’s machine washable, economical, easy to replace, and easy to change if you want a different color. In addition, there are more color/pattern options with comforters than with rugs. The comforter I’m currently using as a rug (right), features multi-colored chevrons. It provides multiple pops of color and protects the carpet underneath. Already have an area rug? Throw a comforter over it to not only create a new look for your space, but also provide extra cushion under your feet. It’s a great way to update a bedroom with minimal investment! Another tip: use a comforter that’s two-sided. One side of mine has chevrons, the other is a solid hot pink. This way you’ll have two looks in one, and will always be able to have a bright, stylish bedroom that’s the envy of all your friends!
Birds of a Feather
When I walk around my local lake there’s usually a large group of geese that tend to congregate towards the far end of the lake. As I kept walking and got closer to the dock, I was surprised to see a visitor in their group: a duck! I thought it was a cute sight and decided to snap a picture. I love how the duck joined the geese as if it was one of their own. The geese didn’t bother the duck, so I guess it was welcome to hang out on the dock. It’s always interesting to see different types of animals enjoying each other’s company. I think this is nature’s way of showing that we often have more in common with each other than we want to admit. Want to capture a similar sight? You, too, can snap a similar picture to decorate your space! Find a spot that has a variety of animals (usually near a body of water) and then just keep your eyes open. It may take awhile to get the perfect shot, but eventually you’ll capture a photo of animal friends having fun in the great outdoors!
Two Friends Getting Lunch
On one of my walks I noticed several large groups of geese at the far end of the lake. As I got closer, I noticed that two of the geese had broken off from their group and were bobbing for lunch. I was glad I was able to capture the geese as they were both sticking their heads into the water. Aside from being a great shot, I like how you can see the individual ripples of water around each goose. The geese, foliage, and algae against the blue of the water makes this photo even better. Interested in taking a similar photo? It might take a bit of work, but you, too, can photograph a pair of animal friends! If you’re out in nature, start by looking for groups of animals-they will likely be near a body of water. There are always a few that will drift off from the group, and when this happens it’s your chance to snap a photo. You could also try taking photographs at your local zoo. So what are you waiting for? Get out there and find your own pair of animal friends!
This is one of my favorite pictures I took at my local zoo and aquarium. It’s so cute! I love how the otters keep close to each other. It was sunny the day I took this photo, and they were sunning themselves while floating on the surface of the water. Just a couple of friends hanging out together (who just happen to be otters). A photo like this would be the perfect image for the front cover of the scrapbook project. It will remind you of a great day spent with friends, and shows that friendships form in all species.
