Spotted Photo Theme: Animal Love

Cuteness alert!
Puppies, cats, monkey kisses, and other adorable critters ahead!

Animal Love
Introduction to The Spotted Photo Theme 2013-2014, created by iHanna

Like I mentioned earlier it’s time for a look at the themes that occur in our everyday photographs. I spot cute animals in many of the photos I’ve taken through the years, so for August I’m featuring a few of those here. Theme: Animal Love! I’m one of those people who can not pass an animal without stopping for a chat, and if possible, a scratch. I love animals, cute and strange animals. I especially like those that can take a cuddle, and the newborn ones of course. Who doesn’t adore those?
What themes do you spot in your photographs? Join the fun: Spotted Photo Theme - inspired by iHanna at www.ihanna.nu

What is your relationship with animals you meet? Or are you lucky enough to share a living space with your favorite animal?

I’d love to see your Spotted Photo Theme of Animal Love! You do not need to have a blog for it either, share them on flickr (it’s free to register) and make a folder for your theme there, then come back and share the link here! You can share your post when ever it’s ready, even if it’s weeks after this was originally posted. I will come look. Or join me next month…

The theme of September is more open: Photos of your Favorite Color! If you have a favorite color I bet you photograph it more than the other colors in the color wheel? I know I’m drawn to my favorite color, but more about that in September (my post going up Sunday 7th of September). Until then, stay creative and keep snapping with your camera!

Spotted participants so far: Tammy, Marsha, Snap, Terrie, Heather and Sandra.

    Hi Hanna,

    This is one of my all time favorite “animal love” photos. Taken some time in 2008 or 2009, at a llama farm in Amherst, MA.

    There’s nothing I like more than animals! I want to hug them all. I posted my animals today. YeeHaw!

  3. Chris says:

    Hanna, your photographs are just stunning.

    I missed doing one for Scout last year, and I am going to try it out with my new outdoor cat and Scout. I’ll put them on Flickr, since I am not blogging right now. Not sure if I know how to make a folder there. hmmm…

    Also: SMILLA!!
