Day 5 - Challenge on Nature Photography

DAY 5 in the #challengeonnaturephotography on Facebook.

I think you'll agree with me that the New Zealand summer scenery has been beautiful, but how about we liven it up a bit with some animals? ;o) 
New Zealand Fur seal (Otago Peninsula, South Island, NZ) and Fiordland Crest penguin (Milford Sound, South Island, NZ). Photos taken in January 2011. (click them bigger)

So my sister​ challenged me to participate in the #challengeonnaturephotography on Facebook. The idea is to occupy FB with nature photographs. Each nominated person will post a different nature photo for 7 days. With each photo they will nominate another person and give the name of the person who nominated them... 

It seemed to be that this would be a very nice way to start off 2016, and I wanted to share it with you as well! :o)

Unfortunately I'm terrible at following instructions, and after going through my photos I can't choose any more! So I'm going for DOUBLE! Two photos a day for 14 days... :p

I don't know about challenging anyone on the Blog... But if you feel like joining in please do! Don't worry, you can stick to the original challenge of 1 photo a day for 7 days! ;) (just leave me a comment with the link so I can be sure to go see yours)


  1. I actually took part in that Facebook challenge. Everyday, it was more photos from critters on my farm. Loved seeing the nature photos, though not many friends participated. I didn't call out anyone. I'm too kind. LOL

    I decided to hop on here for a few minutes to see if anyone had posted recently and was pleasantly surprised to see you had posted!

    Happy New Year, Cris!

    1. That must have been fun! I remember from your blog that you had some cute animals on that farm! :o)
      I'm trying to make careful choices about who I tag in my FB posts for this Challenge. So far out of 5, 3 friends have kept it up so I must be choosing well! ;o) Plus I try to choose a person who can probably put up photos related to that day's shots. For example for this day I nominated a friend who lives in New Zealand, asking her to show me more animals from down there! :D

      It's nice to see you Lily! HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!

      I'm making a conscious effort to be more present in the blog-o-sphere in 2016. Starting with this series! But I'll probably do most of my writing at Cris Crossing the Globe (travel blog, link up top on the right) since I have a surfeit of things to talk about over there, just not enough time to do it 'cause too busy traveling! :p


Hey there! Yes you! The quiet one in the back... I'd love it if you hung out for a bit and shared your thoughts!

I might stop by your place with an answer, but I'm more likely to reply right here so click on "email follow up comments" if you'd like to see what I and others have to say and come continue the conversation! ;o)
