Happy Mother's Day - Camera Critters


This beautiful seahorse is a mother that I do not envy. I can see the exhaustion in her posture. The poor thing. I think she needs a night out on the shell. Any volunteers for pony sitters?
These are her children...there are hundreds of them in this tiny tank! If you click the image to make it larger you can see the proof.

Happy Mother's Day to all my fellow mommas out there. I hope your day is grand and you don't have too much to clean up after the celebration. Maybe this will give you a laugh:

Oh Wow CWM those are the most awesome shots I have seen to date! Those baby seahorses are so cute! So is mum. Isn't the sea horse the only animal where the male carries the eggs and is pregnant? I think so. Guess mum takes over from there and dad just chills!

Hope you have a great weekend. Chill out like the seahorse dad obviously has! Where were these - are they in your tank? Wow.

Happy Mother's Day, Tisha!
And yep, Thumbelina is right - seahorses are one of the few 'exceptions' of the animal kingdom, where the hubby does all the work! Hope that was true at YOUR house today, too!

Hi! This is great! Its not often one gets to see seahorses up close, well, at least in my case. I hope you do check out my shot this week, it's especially for all the CC moms out there!

There are days when I feel like Supermom, and days when I drag like that little seahorse mama. I'm sure we can all relate.

Hope you had a relaxing Mothers' Day, T - I sure did!
