Saturday Photo Hunt - Empty


This weeks theme is Empty.

Last year we found these nuts (not sure exactly what they were). What I do know, is in addition to these spiky outer shell, there were also round seeds that went inside. This spiky shell happened to be empty when we found it.

On a trip to the beach last year, we found this skate egg satchel washed up on the shore. It had already hatched and was empty.

In our gardens, we have snails. Our snails actually have shells like sea snails. This particular shell found in the garden was empty.

We went on a tour of a local dairy farm. Inside the barn, we saw this rack of empty milk bucket.

Beautiful. I know what those spikey things are, but I can't think of the name!

The spiky things are chestnuts.

Very very cool. Perfect for the theme this week (much more-so than mine I'm afraid!!) Thank you so much for always taking the time to stop by, even when my busy life prevents me from reciprocating sometimes. Means a lot.

That's a bunch of interesting photos. But the skeet fascinated me: I have never heard of those. They look like they have the shell of a horseshoe crab. And they hatch out of it huh? Interesting!

You've taught me something today! I've never known of a Skate or skate egg.
Your Empty photos are great!

Cats & Goats - I never knew what a Skate was until after we found that washed up on the beach (Husband knew it as he sees them at work). Right after we saw that, we were at the EcoTarium (its a Science Center) and they had some Skate eggs and newborn Skates in a tank.

You have a lot of Empty things at your house. Thanks for stopping by and seeing my EMPTY glass of what was once milk with my Tagalong Girl Scout cookies!! That was actually my daughters idea but a good one at that...
