National Geographic Pictures of the Year (part three)

January 25, 2010

Right on schedule (for once!) is the third and final batch of spectacular pictures from the National Geographic.  I hope you have enjoyed appreciating these pictures as much as I have.

So, that’s the lot.  Weren’t they fantastic?  My favourite here has to be the bear and the bee – although the fox in the last one is too funny.  He obviously really wants whatever is under that snow!  Which one do you like best?

    I love the first shot. You can’t tell what a reptile is thinking, can you? They’ve been here so much longer than us, too. The colours are fab, and cropping brilliant.
    I also applaude what you are about. Having just about survived rasing my own ADHD (with other problems) son any cause that supports autism is worth its weight in gold.

      Thanks for your comment – I love the colours in that shot too.

      And thanks for sharing about your son, too. My 6-year-old is autistic and hypermobile – the information that we have had from these organisations has been invaluable.

    Baby seal and the mother. Mother seal has a cute satisfying look on her face 🙂

    I like the big fish coming out of the school. Can you imagine what the diver is thinking?

      I can, but I won’t print it 😀

    I love the baby seal too! But you’re right, the fox is too funny

      I just want to know what it is that he’s after!

    Hey, what a fabulous array of photos!!!! Wow. thanks so much for sharing them. Personally I love the fox!!! I had a most amazing experience last week when we still had snow; 2 foxes came into the garden and were playing around in broad daylight….so unusual. I got fab footage of them gambolling about. The large fish coming face-to-face with the diver is brilliant and of course the baby seal is precious.
    Your blog is great by-the-way 🙂
    do have a look at mine if you wish….my nom-de-plume is notjustagranny
    Have a great day 🙂

    I have some toy horses made of plastic that look like these. I imagine setting them carefully atop a crispy cracker to ‘stage’ this photograph.

    It was hard to choose; each one evokes so many responses. That is the magic of photography.

      Yes, I agree – pictures are so versatile, and can mean different things to different people. I wish I could take a better shot, but I certainly enjoy appreciating them!

    It’s difficult to believe that some of these shots are real!! I must say, the manatee one really pulls on my heart strings! How long did it take for that to heal?!?

      Yes, it’s such a shame the injuries some of these creatures have inflicted upon them. They are such magnificent pictures too.
