The Tour Continues: Animals of Ireland

Pin It

If you've been following the slow drip of Ireland photos here at WWC, you've seen bits and pieces of some of the sites I saw on my recent adventure... 


Humor me a bit more as I share with you some more of my favorite shots. The creatures of Ireland were no less interesting than the people and the scenery. I guarantee each of these animals has a story to tell.


With the photos like the ones above, I always wonder what the animal is thinking while a crazy human holds a black box up to her face and snaps away. I am grateful that these animals were just as intent on watching me as I was watching them.


The insects were another story. Getting a macro shot of a constantly moving insect setting upon a flower that moves with the constantly blowing wind is a challenge. Luckily, this little bee offered to pose for a split second!


I had the honor of a carriage ride at the Muckross House in Killarney. Driven by a charming Irish gent and accompanied by a female tourist from Australia, the trot to the waterfall was one to remember.
