Scavenger Hunt Sunday--Day 14

Early in the week I was so pleased that I would have plenty of time to take the right photos for the prompts. Just before dark Saturday evening I remembered--so much for plenty of time. I racked my brain trying to think of a place I could get to before dark to take the pictures. I managed for all but snuggle. I had to take it from my archives.

1. Beverage


My husband chauffeured me around as I searched for just the right setting... Ah ha! How could I have forgotten about the Coke Plant. We entered from behind the plant. I saw trucks being loaded, but could never get a clear shot for all the fences and stacks of trays and pallets in the way. We finally made it to the front of the building where I found this sign. The picture didn't come out as clear as I would have liked, but I didn't have time to do much playing around.


We went back around to get a shot of the trays. It was kind of neat to see the names of the various flavors they bottle in this plant.

2. Snuggle


This guy thought he could snuggle down below the grass and rest out of sight.


He hadn't accounted for my camera which exposed him big time.


It wasn't long before he realized he had been discovered and scampered off to find a new snuggle space!

3. Thick


This neighborhood had big dogs who weren't afraid to show their teeth. I took the shot of this thick brushy area through the window of the car. I suppose I should have edited out the rear view mirror.

4. Behind the Lens


I was in a dilemma as to what to use for behind the lens other than my camera. I walked back toward car after stopping by to see my daughter at work before heading on home. Hmm, there's a lens. It was with me all the time. You could say I was behind the lens of the brake lights because I was behind the car. You can also see the light that is behind the lens itself. Then of course, I was still behind the lens of my camera as I shot this. So take your pick...

5. Where were you?


The Kelco Plant is in the industrial park of our community. The painting on their sign should give you a clue as to where I was. This symbol is also on our license plate. 
You guessed it! I was in Oklahoma.

    1. I agree with you. If it had been in my house, I would have had to leave.

  2. oh my, I don't want to get anywhere near that spider! What kind is it? Ick, ick! But, sort of cute. See the irony, I think bugs, insects, arachnids, etc are quite fascinating to learn about, but don't get them anywhere near me.
    Love you take on Behind the Lens.

    1. I believe it is a Texas Tan Tarantula. It looks just like the Wiki pictures. I can't deal with spiders of any kind in my house, but out of doors where they belong I can tolerate them. They make great photo subjects!

    1. Yes, he is hairy. You would never notice it just to see it on the ground. The picture really brought out the eerie details. I shiver every time I look at the picture.

  5. An interesting fact my husband just told me about this tarantula--It actually has a heart that pumps blood.

  6. I have gotten used to some spiders living where I do now and where I used to live.

    I try to at least think about the shots I want to take for the prompts even if I end up taking them all in one day. it is helping me now especially since I started the MCP Actions photo a day challenge. I missed some days already due to sickness but oh well...I just picked up the day I felt better.

    1. I have been writing the prompts to the notes on my phone as soon as we get them. Some weeks I manage to plan it all out, then sometimes it's like it was this week. I am pleased that I at least have managed to keep this up for 14 weeks in a row (except when no prompts were posted around Christmas). It would be nice if I could post as regularly to my blog!

  7. I love your spider. For some reason I've never been afraid of tarantulas. I also like your cleverness in your behind the lens shot.

    You are right down the road from where I live in Tulsa.

    1. I believe there are several Okie's or nearly so who participate in SHS. I was surprised since SHS originated in NC I think.
