Day 8! My favorite category so far.
 
it's DAY EIGHT of REVEALS
from the 2015 - 15TH ROUND
of the +Chrysta Rae Photography Scavenger Hunt!!!

What you are about to experience 
over the course of the next 10 days is pretty awesome.
We play a game - 500 photographers and myself - a photography scavenger hunt.

What  is the scavenger hunt?
Only the most inspiring, creative and fun way to learn your camera, push your limits, experiment, and shoot things in ways you didn't think you could.

I host this event a few times a year for anyone of any level of photography to participate.
I open the game up to 500 Photographers
I give you 10 items to shoot 
I give you a period of time to shoot and enter your photos.
Then I have them judged by amazing photographers  

I then open the albums up to the public - every morning over the course of 10 days. 
There are 10 categories:
This is the first - the "LADYBUG* album.

This event is an amazing way to use your camera in new ways. 
It gets you seeing things in new ways,
It helps improve your photography skills, 
gives you a huge audience, 
and let's everyone celebrate each other's successes. 
Make new friends,
and be a part of a community of photographers who care about each other, teach each other, and inspire one another.

The sign up for the next round of the scavenger hunt will be announced on day 10 of reveals from this round.

The group of "scavengers" that participate create a community unlike any other on G+. 
Support, encouragement  friendships even some #huntsmack is enjoyed. 
We become a family over the course of the month. 

This is a negative-free zone - I have zero tolerance for any critiques that are uninvited. 
Please be respectful and remember that every person went out there and took the time to shoot these images 
and put thought into them and tried their best. 
As always, I am proud of every single one of you.

(ONLY ONE of the images were taken by ME - this is a collection of images taken by multiple photographers participating in the scavenger hunt. All copyrights apply)

With that - I present to you the LADYBUG album,
1 item seen in 240 different ways.

When I ordered ladybugs for my latest Scavenger Hunt, I also picked up a praying mantis Ootheca. It sat dormant for almost a month and a half before it finally hatched. These guys were only 3 days old in this shot. They're almost a week old now! I've released about half of them in my neighborhood, but we're going to keep one as a pet. :)

I googled it and saw that they are in our state +Amy G ... I've just never seen one here in all the years I've lived here. You are lucky!

I am very sorry to say that we did everything we possibly could to save her, but it wasn't enough. Dora the Cat! is gone. Cat! slipped away about 15 minutes after we left the vets office. I had to wait until we could tell all of the kids before updating here.

She spent her last 2 years being spoiled rotten and being Queen of the house. Now that she's gone the house feels so empty, and quiet.
Goodnight Dora Cat! We will miss you so much.

+Amy Woods I am glad to hear that you are at least open to the idea of another furball (dog or cat) in the house.

My daughter's dance recital was incredible. :) I'm so proud of how well she did. Sadly, the dance company would not allow photography of any kind during the performance.  

Her step-mom was behind stage with Morgan, and did get some shots for me. :) There are no words for how happy this makes my heart.

I'm going to be away until the 6th with limited internet access. My family and I rented a loft and beach house for the weekend. It's taken 7 months of planning, saving and thinking for all 15 of us. I am so excited!
