Rinda's 2015 Scavenger Hunt

The 2015 Scavenger Hunt is under way:

I am joining in with Rinda's Photography Scavenger Hunt this year and on this page you will find all my 'finds' for this year. I will probably have done a post about them too, but here you will find them all together. I will be adding to this page as I come across the items on the list. I may take more than one photo of an item and I will be deciding at the end of the hunt which my final items will be.
So the post was made about the new Scavenger Hunt this year, she shares this:Newcomers welcome - the more, the merrier! No special photography skills are required - I love seeing everything from snap shots to fine art photography in response to the list. You don't have to do anything special to sign up, but if you're a blogger who I don't normally visit, leave me a link to your blog in the comments and I'll add you to my feedly reader. I like to gather and highlight posts now and then throughout the summer to share here. You can see the post here on Rinda's Blog looks like a fun list here it is:

 Note: you may not use a substitute for this item.  If you find something on the list too difficult, you may substitute one of the following items for any one item on the list, except for Item #21:
Alternative A: People eating outside
Alternative B: Someone holding an umbrella
Alternative C: A rocking chair 

By pure luck I already have photos of the Turtle:

7. A turtle:This was the first find by pure luck on June 1 we had a snapping turtle in the garden:

Dave said he probably came up from the river, must have been quite the tract. I just happen to see something strange in the garden and went to investigate and this is what I found. So first picture down and done! Crossed off the list. I have a separate page for this hunt: and there you can check in if you like to see what pictures I've gotten over the summer attached with a link to the blog post about it.


  1. Oh this sounds like fun Tina! I can't wait to see all your pictures as you get them. I love the snapping turtle pics. Does anyone in your area get them and make turtle soup?! I do not eat turtle soup!!! lol But I know there are 3 of my neighbors that get snapping turtles to make turtle soup all the time. When I see the cooking going on the one neighbor's backyard, I know they are making the soup. I wouldn't have the heart to cook up these guys even though I know they can be nasty. lol So will you post your pictures here on your blog as you find them? You said about a separate link, but the one link is to the ladies blog so I was wondering. Have fun with this Tina! Hugs, Brenda

  2. What a fun idea. Can't wait to see all your pics.
