ABC Wednesday: P is for Peekaboo

 Picking peekaboo shots put me in the position of looking for shots I normally wouldn't consider as good as others.
The catbird above was playing peekaboo in the mulberry tree and ordinarily I would have gone with the shots when its face wasn't hidden.
Primary among the criterion I used for picking peekaboo shots was part of the animal was hidden like the pretty bluejay above. The neighborhood puss below was peeking out at me from my deck although at this point I keep my gate shut to discourage pussycats from scaring the birds that bathe on my deck.
The pretty swallowtail butterfly was peeking out from the coneflowers and grasses several summers ago when I took that peekaboo shot.
Peter Cottontail was playing peekaboo in my grass several summers ago.
The squirrel was playing peekaboo on my deck wall recently.
My neighbor's cat was playing peekaboo in my primroses recently.

Ah, those tricky critters! You've put up a nice series here!
God bless you!

Peekaboo is the perfect word to highlight these photos. The theme is playful and suddenly turns what might have seemed like imperfect shots into interesting stories and in some cases (like the curious orange cat or the butterfly hidden by flowers) pretty works of art. :)

OH, how clever you are, Carver!

Charming post! Look at that cheeky black cat :) I love the butterfly.

What a fun and clever post today. I guess it pays to even keep the pictures full of peekaboo-ness.

Meryl said...

What perfect fun these photos are! I leave with a wide smile. Loved the post. Thank you.

Paula Scott said...

A very clever approach! I love it! Also reminds me of all the fun I've had playing peek a boo with all the children in my life.

That can be really frustrating, but then you turned them into a fun post.

Perfect series of photos for the letter P!

I especially like the first cat. One can barely see the one side of his face, which is fascinatingly creepy!

Carver, lovely pictures, and a clever answer to the prompt! I admire your "out of the box" thinking, and that last image of the cat, camouflaged partly by closing its eyes and ignoring you, is SO catlike! Thanks for a day-brightener. Peace, Amy

Annie said...

This is a very creative collection - I'm amazed at how many playing peekaboo shots you have. I hope the neighbors cats don't scare all your birds away.
