I also enjoy nature photography, as well as hiking, which often go together. In the warmer months the list includes kayaking and paddleboarding

I have my other critters to look after:

2 Tortoises
2 Blue Front Amazons
1 Rabbit
1 Dwarf Hamster
2 Chinchillas

All critters in the list sans the rabbit was adopted / rescued. We lost our 12 year Jack Russell Terrier this past Thursday; I'm currently dealing with that. Saying that it sucks is a massive understatement, but I'm giving myself a year before deciding whether to get another dog or not.

I like to read and cleaning / de-cluttering is also considered a hobby. I'm not afraid of dirt and dust, I just don't like them. Clutter drives me crazy, so if something doesn't serve a purpose sans Christmas decorations, memorabilia such as photographs or things that have to be kept like paper work for taxes, it goes.

When I'm not doing any of those things, I occasionally play sims. I've been playing since the original game out in 2000. I can't stand the newest version of the game, so I stopped buying after Sims 3. My game is heavily modded and makes me happy when I'm not dealing with pet deaths and other life nonsense.

Guitars, vintage tube amps and antique tubes to go in them along with effects like fuzz, delay and reverb. Itís what I fell back on when I was away from aquarium for about 8yrs. Itís one of those hobby like woodworking, photography etc that you can set aside when you want or donít have time to do it. Unlike aquarium etc where itís life depends your husbandry practices.

Hobbies? such a relative term.... my aquariums are now my full time job. Ha!
Now that I am out of Mayo here in US- I will be traveling again, I hike almost obsessively, and in such have taken up bird watching. I have a house filled with exotic critters (one of which is on the endangered watch list- so she takes up a bit of time as I raised her from an egg). I garden and build just about anything/everything- from furniture to crafts (whatever friends need, I make). My restaurants is closed, so now I focus on 'me' until I move across the world again (I go where I can actively practice biology again).

I have always wanted to try scuba and spear fishing. Camping and guns are two of the best things to do outdoors.

My other hobbies include basic yard work around my house, essentially landscaping and gardening.

My main hobby though it making pottery, I do t have any revent photos becaise I moved in the last year and am working on making a studio space at my new house, once I do I'll be working on new versions of everuthing in my kitchen. Full dish sets and bakeware as well as storage jars for just about everything. Then after I get my stuff made I'll be making for everyone else who has been dieing for me to get to making again.

What great pics! Amazing

Bump: Beautiful!

Bump: So I grew up in the antique business; so I have a house full of antiques. I worked in a comic store as a kid and I collected comics for 20 years; I still have my books. When I was 19, I bought a Buick Grand National that I kept up with until my daughter was born; I still have it but she's seen better days. I collected Atari games for years. I also love to garden; I torn down an old two story deck last year and I've been re-purposing the wood to build garden boxes and I've been collecting the materials to build a green house. I also love to surf fish when I can. Oh, and I went to Culinary Arts school, so I like to cook.

To all that posted photography here, the pics are wonderful!

One regret of mine is that while riding a horse it's not a great scenario for taking pictures.
Many of the thing I see in nature will have to remain in my memory and will retire with me someday.
Occasionally I get some good cell phone pics, just proof I was on the trail and seen some critters.

Stirring up a nest of water snakes on the river bank, then letting your horse take a drink while 8-10 of them are swimming between the horse's legs.

Rolling up into a field of tall grass to see 40-50 deer grazing in a farmers field.
Then run those deer out of the valley to see who gets to the top first.

Slide down a river bank to find a bald eagle with her young in pursuit while fishing the river.

Better yet the angry geese that lay eggs near the riverbank that chase you and your horse for a 1/4 mile.

I like photography but giving the chance to be around horses more I would probably trade it, very jealous.

Anyway some of my hobbies includes snowboarding, hiking and as I mentioned photography:

As a teacher of writing ( and a person that believes writing can paint a very vivid picture) this was as good as a photograph.



I winced just a bit at the image of the snakes swimming between the horses legs.

3D Printing

It's an amazing companion hobby to my other hobbies.

My pea puffer liked the little dog house I designed and printed for her.


And I experimented with a brine shrimp hatchery dish design, it does work but IMO is too much effort unless you're feeding like only one or two bettas.
