Photo Submission: All Creatures Great And Small


Earlier this week, I suddenly got the idea of hosting another photo submission post because the last one was so much fun!

Only this time I decided to give it a theme.

And the theme is: All Creatures Great And Small.

Since there are many of us here who LOVE animals, I thought it would be kinda cool to give them a post all their own; celebrating the animal kingdom.

Your photo can be of your own pet, or any photo you’ve taken of an animal. It can be of a dog, cat, insect, goldfish, bird, horse, or any creature.

And remember, this is not a photo contest. I’m simply doing this to share and open the floor to you, your camera, and your love of animals.

So, are you ready to submit?

Okay, here’s how it will go…..

*Please read these photo guidelines carefully:

-Send only ONE photo. If you have several pets and would like them all featured, just be sure they are included in a SINGLE photo or collage.

-I like to use BIG photos on this blog, so your submissions can be up to 600px wide (but no bigger). I ask that if you need to reduce the width of your photo, you do it before sending it to me. If you need a place to resize your original photo, I recommend going to Lunapic.com, where you can upload your image and resize it fast, easy and free, by using the 600x600 drop down setting.

-Please feel free to use your own watermark if you wish.

-Pretty please do not send two or three photos and then ask me to choose. I ask that you choose.

-If you’re sharing a photo of your own pet(s), please include their name(s). If you’re sending a photo of an animal in general, please include a photo title.

-Include your blog name and URL in your email, so that I can link the photo back to you.

-You will find my email address on the contact page below my blog header.

-Deadline for photo submissions will be: Wednesday, March 28th at midnight.

-Depending on how many photos are sent, I will most likely post your images on two separate posts, like the last time. Photos will be posted in the order in which they are received.

-Again, I ask that you read these guidelines carefully. Thank you….x

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask me in your comments.

So go ahead folks, don’t be shy. Send a photo of your pet or an animal; sharing it with others.

Have fun and enjoy!

Oh…and here’s my own silly photo submission.

It’s entitled: “Doggie Movement Concerto in B Flat”


Wishing you a smooth move weekend everyone!

  3. Bonjour Ronnie,

    Now, when I saw that bushy tailed critter on your page this morning, it gave me a big smile( I showed D and passed on the happiness; he loves all types of animals,too). On the other hand the crapping dog, D did not get a smile from that. Oh well...

    What an absolutely cool idea for this photo sharing! Well done :) I missed your first sharing event last year.

    My entry will be in your inbox in a few minutes...
    BTW; I never tried Lunapic before. It worked out really nicely. I will keep that photo link.

    Happy weekend to ya, dear. It looks like a beaut of a weekend here. Hoping the same for you in Love city.

  5. Sounds fun! That is a great pic of the squirrel, love it! Had to laugh at the last one. My son took a pic of the dog crapping in the snow once and thought it was so funny he posted it on his bedroom door!

    Thank you, I LOVE squirrels. I took that photo sometime last year (I think it was in the Fall). The squirrel was moving around so fast, I didn't think any of my photos would come out.

    Yes, I just got you photo in my email box. THANK YOU! I was so hoping you would submit a photo!

    Have a super weekend, dear lady! And thanks for stopping by!

    What a great idea, Ron! I don't have a pet and most of the animals I know walk on two legs, but if I see some nice cat, dog, squirrel, or buffalo--in Brooklyn you never know--I'll be sure to get a photo. I'm so looking forward to seeing the photos you receive. Have a great weekend, buddy!

  11. Hey there Peg~

    Glad you got a giggle from the past photo - I just couldn't resist - HA!

    The squirrel photo I took sometime last year (I think in the Fall). I was surprised that it came out because that little critter was moving around so FAST, I could hardly focus the camera.

    Sooooooooo glad to hear that you'll be submitting a photo! Yaaaaaaaaaay!

    Thanks so much for stopping by this morning, dear friend. Have a glorious weekend!

    P.S. hope all is going well with the restaurant!

    I do hope you'll submit a photo for this post, because your photographs are AMAZING!

    "Had to laugh at the last one. My son took a pic of the dog crapping in the snow once and thought it was so funny he posted it on his bedroom door!"

    HAHHAHAHAHAHAHA! OMG...how funny! I took that photo last summer, whilst sitting in the park - I just couldn't resist!

    Aw...thank you, dearest lady. My family and I REALLY appreciate your thoughts and prayers. My mother is doing VERY well. I speak to her at least twice a day and she sounds better and better each time we talk. She's positive and upbeat. She's actually having a little party at her condo this weekend with her girlfriends to celebrate how well she feels.

    Have a lovely weekend, TJ. And thanks oodles for stopping by this morning!

  21. Rules!! Why must there always be soooo many rules!??? HAHA! You know, dear, I'm going to forget one of them, I just know it. Or maybe I'll forget that I sent you a photo and then send another... and another. LOL JK, I'll do my very best to comply.
    Actually, I think I have one in mind. No wait, I think that other one would be good. Or, hmm... maybe that one. No, definitely the other one. Or maybe a new one... where's my dang camera???
    OH HELL, I'll be back.

    And while you're waiting... have a wonderful weekend. xo

    I know, aren't I the taskmaster??????

    "I'll do my very best to comply."

    Thank you. It's just that putting these posts together takes time (which I don't mind at all), it's just that I have to try and make it as easy and clear for myself (and you guys) as possible, by setting some guidelines.

    And I can't WAIT to see what you come up with because I ADORE your photos!

    You GO, girl!!!!!

    Thanks for stopping by and for participating. Have a WONDERFUL weekend!

    Oh this post sounds like such fun! Now to decide on a photo!

    That squirrel is SO cute. My gram used to have a squirrel that came on her patio every day and she HAND fed it! Then in Washington DC two summers ago my son was feeding a squirrel in the park! They must really like not hunting for food--too much work! Smart animals!

    LOL @ dog picture. I see THAT every day with 3 dogs of my own. Funny thing, the one dog will "hide" while she goes! Maybe she's like us and has a "pooping in public" phobia! ;-)


    ((you))

    Have a super weekend!

  29. Hey there Pamela~

    "Oh this post sounds like such fun! Now to decide on a photo!"

    So glad to hear that you are submitting a photo, I was HOPING you would!!!! The last time I hosted one of these posts, we all had so much fun that I wanted to do it again!

    "That squirrel is SO cute. My gram used to have a squirrel that came on her patio every day and she HAND fed it!"

    OMG....how fabulous! I adore squirrels and will often sit in a nearby park and feed them. Once (and only once) did I have a squirrel actually take a peanut from my hand. The city squirrels here are very human friendly and have no issues with coming right up to you; standing on their hind legs and saying, "Can you please feed me?" HA!

    "LOL @ dog picture. I see THAT every day with 3 dogs of my own. Funny thing, the one dog will "hide" while she goes! Maybe she's like us and has a "pooping in public" phobia! ;-)"

    Bwhahahahhahahahaha! Oh, how FUNNY!!!!!!

    Thank you so much for that hug, dear lady. And ONE back to ya!

    Yes, things appear to be going well. We're just taking one day at a time and seeing where it leads us. But, so far so good. She's doing well!

    Just know that I'm always thinking of you, your sister, and family...sending MUCH energy and love!

    Thanks for stopping by, Mel. You made my week!

  35. Oooh I'm late... had to give my attention to hubs who was leaving for Australia. Not permanently, mind. The leaving warranted a meal out and a bit of a celebration. Regarding the new competition or whatever it's called, I've got one picture that I can spare but I might have to enlarge it first. It's not great but it might pass the grade. Have a peaceful weekend.

    No worries, dear lady, I totally understand. Hope your hubby had a great send off to Australia! How fun! I've never been to Australia, but I hear it's faaaaaabulous!
