    I've enjoyed reading all of the informative posts and seeing photos of quilts, quilt rooms, babies, vacations. The last couple of years my main hobby was photography but I'm back to quilting now. Here are a few pictures that I've taken of wildlife I've seen.

    Soon I should be able to post pictures of quilts. I have finished a top but haven't gotten up the nerve to quilt it yet. It's big! :) (King size, I think.)

    I hope you enjoy them.

    Really great shots thanks for sharing them. The polar bear looks like he/she just finished a meal - that's probably a good thing for someone taking pictures of him his stomach is full and less likely to think you are dinner :-) Looking forward to seeing your quilt

    Breathtaking pictures - you truly captured the essence - and I wish I had gone with you to all those wonderful places!!! Have you been published or was it simply done out of a love for photography?

    Quilting related photos, I took a picture of the top I made a couple of weeks ago and the two mini blocks I made today.

    Love your wildlife pics! Coming from South Africa I have been lucky enough to be surrounded by the Big Five but would still love to see some bears in their natural habitat.

    Your quilt is lovely - good choice of colours.
