Camera Critters (#45)


It wasn’t until the day after Jeffrey and I went to the Bucks game that I realized I had missed a great opportunity to get a Camera Critters photo. I did manage to get this one:

See that blur? That’s the Bucks mascot Bango, doing the slam dunk thing. I just had my camera on the wrong setting, so all I got was that blur. If I had been thinking, I could have gotten some other pictures of Bango, running around on the court, riding the Harley around on the court, something. But, no, I didn’t do it.

Last time we went to a Bucks game (last year) I didn’t get any of those either, but I did get this pic of the inflatable Bango after he deflated the other team’s mascot:

See, I told you the whole thing was rather circus-like.

Camera Critters is a fun weekend meme hosted by Misty Dawn.Visit the Camera Critters headquarters and join in. There are all kinds of great critters to see!

ETA: because I didn't actually know the answer to the question, "Is Bango supposed to be a buck? How come the inflatable Bango has no antlers?" I looked for and found some info on Bango on the Bucks website. There's a nice video on the page, too that shows some of Bango's antics. Yes, it does look like he's a buck and he does have antlers, though I don't know why the inflatable one doesn't have any, except that maybe he was starting to deflate himself.


  1. I think I prefer these shots to the ones you could have taken. These are great! Big smile!

  2. I really love the blurry shot :)

    Mine is up over at Feather, Fur and Fins

  3. VERY nice work, Anna, because in this case the blur actually forces our attention to that segment of the photo.

    If ever you want to take a shot like this, just flip your switch t ``sport mode'' or, as it is called on some cameras, ``moving image'' mode and the much quicker shutter speed will give you a clearer image.

    Just holler if you need any details. That is what I'm here for.

    By the way, I was wondering if you'd care to do a Sunday Roast .... let me know and I'll send you the questions. At your (complete) leisure. No rush at all .....

  5. I like the blur! Something seen as a mistake by the photographer, can often be turned in to it's most valuable quality...

    Like david mcmahon said - it forces you to look at that area/aspect of the photo.

  6. Very clever camera critter entry. Great shots, and the blurry one is fun.

  7. thanks for adding the link to the video - that was fun!
