SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY.....4-8-2012

Happy Easter!! Happy Passover!! Happy Sunday!!  This week's Scavenger Hunt Sunday photo prompts are New, Life, Fragrant, Pink and Obvious. We have spent the past few weeks in Arizona, so I have been devoting some of my photo-taking time watching the horses. What beautiful animals... I have an interesting horse story that I will tell with the "new" and "obvious" photos.

Life - I pulled this one out of my archives...one of my favorite photos - taken last summer on a foggy morning.

Fragrant - I had to include the flower from the Argentine Giant cactus that I photographed last week. I think it's amazing how such a prickly plant can produce such a beautiful flower. But actually the second photo is the most fragrant tree in the yard, the Sweet Acacia.

Pink - While out to eat this eat, we sat next to the cutest little girl, dressed in pink. So, of course I had to take her photo.... I'm getting much more comfortable asking people if I can snap a shot.

New - Ok, here goes the first phase of my horse story... I have really enjoyed photographing these adorable horses. This first photo shows the "new" little horse with his mother.  The mother laid down on the ground and the little one decided it might be fun to climb on top of her.  This was something I had never seen before. I don't think mother was too excited.  Read on...

Obvious - So, obviously at some point mother wanted to stand up and little horse was on her back, so...... she stood up, the little one went flying in the air and landed on his back. It was crazy. We were watching with several other people and we all gasped. Fortunately, he got right up. He stood there stunned for a few minutes, but then proceeded to run around. I felt so bad for the little horse, but was excited that I was able to catch it with my camera. He ended up being fine and thank goodness it all ended happy.  I guess he's pretty tough for a little one.
