Giraffes are another thing that make me smile.

Nose Collectors

I have begun collecting pictures of critter noses.

I think they are so cute.

Close-up shots of noses.

Of course, I think critter behinds are cute, too. But I don’t want to be caught on the farm, following around my critters trying to get a picture of their patooties.

Imagine the gossip!

 My neighbors would think I’m insane. Don’t you think?

So, I’m gonna stick to getting pictures of the other end.

This all started a few years ago, when a friend, who has cows, gave me a close-up shot of a cow’s nose. I was smitten and a little amused. I’m gonna try to find it, to add to this post.

Here are some of the pictures in my collection. Remember, I’m just getting started. So there’s not many.

One of my dogs. Nanook

This is a friend’s cat. She took this with her camera phone.

 One of my horses. Haley.

And a giraffe nose, from the St. Louis Zoo.

Getting a good picture of a critter nose is not easy. You have to get them to hold still long enough for the camera to focus. That’s the hard part.

Go ahead, try it.

I would love for you to join in with me. Take snap shots of your favorite critter noses and contact me. The pictures don’t have to be perfect. Just look at mine! Just a critter nose.

I’ll get the link for your picture and add it to my collection.

Once, I have several new pics, I’ll make a new post and show them off. Be sure to send me your name and URL. So I can add a link to your site.

I’m gonna leave this up over the weekend, so you’ll have plenty of time to get those noses.

Come on, join the fun. It’s not easy. But it’s fun!

Let’s see how many noses we can collect!
