(Ecuador) – Living totally immersed in nature, I am often treated to unexpected visitors from the wild! This week’s photo challenge is ‘Extra Extra,‘ and Michelle states, “This week, share a photo that has a little something extra: an unexpected visitor, or a tranquil landscape with a splash of color. A lone carrot in a sea of peas. Draw us in with a humorous detail, or find a photo with an added element that makes it an image only you could capture.”
I remembered this surprise moment from earlier this year.
Peering from its hiding place, Mr. Frog startled me one sunny morning!
Although frogs and geckos ‘creep out’ many of my female friends, they make me smile and are often used as models for some of my studies! Here are a few more unexpected guests that arrived with no warning:
There are several visitors that are not as welcome; I politely show them the door and ask them to please leave!
Once in Costa Rica, I was awakened by a mysterious sound. Wondering if it was the thief who had stolen the Trooper’s battery, I tiptoed downstairs, turned on the kitchen light and immediately screamed when I saw this tiny creature:
I surely scared the spotted skunk more than it scared me!
Here’s one more unexpected visitor that greeted me one sunny morning in Belize. At least it wasn’t hiding in my shoe!
Most every day Life presents extra surprises; with childlike expectations, I look forward to the next visitor!
