Blue Monday - Blue Animals

Hello! Welcome to Blue Monday! For complete instructions, just click here.

Please leave a comment for me; I guarantee that I'll visit and leave one for you. Visit other Blue participants by clicking on their links and leaving comments. If it's too much for one day, come back later in the week. 


Make someone's day when you wish them a Happy Blue Monday!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blue has long been considered the world's favorite color, even though it's the rarest occurring pigment found in nature. Sure, we can see Blue quite easily in the sky and water, but its tendency to appear in animals is fairly uncommon. source

Here are some rare Blue examples.

Grand Cayman Blue iguana


Glaucus atlanticus, also known as a Blue dragon



Blue poison dart frog


Augochloropsis sumptuosa, also known as the sweat bee



I've never seen these animals before. Have you?

Happy Blue Monday!

Very unusual but so pretty in blue! Isn't it funny the blue we can find when we look around. I am late, but celebrating my blogaversary so I hope everyone stops by for a chance to win my surprise giveaway. You can bet those packages will be wrapped in blue! Happy Blue Monday! Thanks Sally for the share.

My goodness those are interesting - I don't think I've ever heard of any of them. The Blue Dragon is especially interesting.

I have some blue birds - and they look really small in the photo although they are the size a a hand with lots of tail feathers - pretty Christmas decorations.

You do find the best blue creatures.

Interesting blue creatures, Sally. I'm sure my son has studied every one of them. The blue dart frog I seem to recall in one of his books. You always share something fun and unique for your Blue Monday. I'm happy to join you today.

Autumn blessings,
Sandi

Hi Sally, I posted a bit late as our trip home yesterday was wet and long. So much rain. Anyway, we are home safe and it feels so good to be here.

Blue is definitely not common in animals. You found some good ones to share. Amazing really.

Your header is awesome. I wish I knew how to do that.

The Gator game was stressful but we won. Our photo was taken the week before but we were there on this past Sat. too.

I hope to do some visiting this evening. Right now we are off to town for groceries.

Happy Blue Monday.
Love. Jeanne

Very cool. Interesting fine.
I'm better late than never.
Had to work today. Had a rough weekend. But I'm 'winging it' and I'm better.
Have a great party.

It is so unusual to see blue in the animal kingdom and so startling when you do. And no, I have never seen any of those creatures, ever. Enjoy your week.
