Well you failed on all three!
Magpies and Kookaburras are birds.
Can't see any vegetables, unless the flowers are edible???
Mineral??? Is that the young "femme" on the skate board?
Never the less lovely photos - ha ha!

Diane, I enjoyed your photos. I love the birds, especially the kookaburra. The girl on the skateboard is having fun. Great shots, have a wonderful weekend.

Love the photo of the berries and fluffed up Kookaburra. Gald to hear your grandboys travelled well and landed safely.
P.S. iIthink my boys (even the big one) are pretty cute too ;)

I have to say that you did a great job with this photo challenge. I really like your photo of the twigs, but I'm not too sure of your last animal picture.

Very good pictures. The girl with the scateboard is a playful shot.

I hear you all are planning a birthday celebration with/for him.... My new header is in his honor --and I'll bet that you will like it too.

Have a great weekend.

Amazing how little 'mineral' there is!!!

Lovely work! Reminds me of the old game "20 Questions." Fun to have a photo challenge like that and you definitely passed with flying colors. (I would have had troubles with the mineral one...I guess gravel or rocks would work, but I would never have thought of the concrete table, even if I'd been sitting at it!). Love the kookaburras, wish I could see one in person (or I guess I mean in "animal".)

Sounds like fun to belong to a camera club and meet these challenges. You found a lovely variety...It was probably difficult to choose which ones to photograph..as animal, vegetable and mineral covers a lot of territory!

What a lovely place to go for the challenge!
I really need to look for a club in my area. It would be fun to share and learn from others.
