Photohunt: Scary

The photohunter theme this week is scary. Hopefully I will be able to visit some early birds but I won't be able to do much weekend visiting so I'll probably be visiting photohunters late. The bird below finds the monster with the metal object very scary. Don't be scared. I come in peace. I want to shoot your picture not you.If you have time, SabineM and I have a scary parallel lives post at Snap2Days. You can visit other early birds at technorati and on Saturday at the home of the hunt.

Woah..... a little out of the ordinary...

Annie said...

I love this! I wish the birds and other creatures could really grasp "we come in peace" with our cameras!

And I love your photo and post about James Taylor. I blogged about him this week too (went to hear him in Chapel Hill on Monday night).

Have a nice weekend!

i reckon our cameras really look scary to the animals around.
whenever i'm in the park without my camera, birds come almost within reach but with the camera in hand, they are nowhere to be seen :)

The theme is quite challenging this week. But that's the beauty of hunting, isn't it.

Have a good weekend.

Mar said...

What a clever take on the theme, Carver! Size can be very scary, if you are the tiny one...
Happy weekend and happy hunting!

EastCoastLife said...

Happy weekend!

Expat Traveler said...

oh yes... I'm scared of my reflection too... ;-)

Sue said...

Creative take on the theme Carver :) Have a great weekend!

jmb said...

I'm sure you are not really scary Carver,maybe your camera but you have to be very cautious about everything when you are an animal or a bird.

Happy weekend to you.

mama meji said...

Glass windows have that effect on me too.

leslie said...

Maybe that's why I have trouble photographing birds - they find me or my camera very scary! lol

jams o donnell said...

Aww it's a shame the bird is scared. If only it knew there was no need to be frightened!

Leslie said...

Another fun PhotoHunt week! have a great weekend. :)

CRIZ LAI said...

Good one Carver! I hardly can get the chance to shoot bird photos as they found my presence to be rather scary.

If I was a bird I'd be scared too.

jaejae said...

Blur Mommy said...

Very creative take on the theme. I love to take photos of animals but I am sure that they don't like me very much with my camera too. :)Happy weekend.

heartbeats said...

Happy Hunting!!!

Bengbeng said...

SASSY MOM said...

Great take for this week's theme!

YTSL said...

FWIW, *I* have no doubts that you come in peace, Carver! ;b

Angela said...

Whew, all these scary posts and a sigh of relief here. Don't be scared little bird!

gen/entry here said...

Creative shots and cool. TC

Barbara H. said...

I never thought of what picture-taking looks like from the bird's side -- very scary indeed! Very creative take!

PrettyLifeOnline said...

Great catch for the theme mine's up too hope you can drop by... Happy weekend!

PastorMac's Ann said...

Nice way to turn the theme around. I've seen a lot of things that are scary to us but didn't think about the photographer being the scary thing. Great job!

Colin Campbell said...

Nice shot. Our birds are wary of me too when I want to "shoot" them.

Aniqueanik said...

you got the scare out of the bird.lol. nice entry.mine is up now.

julie said...

You took a different interpretation but this experience is what we also go through, the birds are scared when we come a little near them :D

Have a great weekend, Carver.

A. said...

That's a wonderful take on the theme! and I can quite understand why the bird would be scared of that shiny metal thing :)

Sanni @ Life... said...

Out of the box - and perfect!

Happy Hunting!

Amanda said...

Awwwwwww, poor thing. I bet its heart was beating like a drum.

Mine's posted too, if you can find time to stop by. Happy weekend.

pat said...

Oh, I love the last photo and caption.

Happy Weekend.

david mcmahon said...

Nice work, Carver!

Theresa said...

Have to say- I don't find you scary at all, but I can maybe see the birds point of view.

:) fun post- love your humor!

Liz said...

Birds have such an awareness of movement around them it's very difficult to creep up on them, isn't it?

Gandalf and Grayson said...

Here, birdie birdie. Nice birdie. hehehe.

EMZKIE said...

poor little birdie.. i bet he is trembling when he saw you with that metal. =)

mine is up HERE Carver.

Sabine said...

Nice take on the theme again. I haven't managed to photograph one single bird yet... :(

I hardly ever manage to think "outside the box" - so my pics are a straight-forward take on scary LOL!

Have a good week Carver (seeing the weekend is almost gone)!

Hootin' Anni said...

I have a Halloween Treat for you on my Monday blog...scroll down.

Sarah C. said...

Fabulous twist on the theme! :)
