Today the Friday Frivolity hosts are sharing some of our favorite Funny Stock Photos. If you are a blogger, you know you need a "pinnable image". And if you aren't the best photography, stock photography can be your best friend. Non-bloggers might also find themselves needing fun photos for presentations or just a good laugh. Here are a few of my favorite places to find free funny stock photos.
Warning! All of these sites have free to use photos or free to use with attribution. Just be careful, because some of these sites also have paid options when you search in order to pay for their site. Be sure to check the license on any photo before using.
If you receive our weekly e-mail letting you know the party is open you have probably seen these images:
The photos are all the creation of the immensely talented photographer Ryan McGuire of Gratisography. I haven't found the place for it yet, but expect this one on a blog post here soon.

And here are some meerkats from FreeImages because meerkats make me smile.
Morguefile's photos require you to alter the photo (e.g. make a meme out of it) or provide photographer attribution. Deemac1 has quite an extension collection of animal and nature photos including this gem.
Open Clip Art
If clipart is more your style, I'd recommend OpenClipArt. The only mosquito I want to see.
If you want even more resources for free to use, free with attribution and paid stock photos, you need to check out this great resource from the International Bloggers Association. Katelyn lists over 50 sites with free or $1 photos. WOW!

Lisa is an awesomely hilarious and authentic writer who marches to her own drum on her blog Syncopated Mama, providing an "un-labelly spot" for all the happily off-beat folks out there who have been wishing to find kindred spirits. She shares her adventures building a natural home, teaching her adorbs daughter, establishing and refining positive communication skills, camping, creating, cooking, and so much more! Her monthly Passport to Fun Series takes us to India in this post.
Jessica is an amazingly funny and smart blogger from Wales who writes at Babi a Fi on a whole range of topics -- from entertaining vintage nostalgia, to technology tutorials, to book reviews, to raising her adorable munchkin, and so much more! This week she asks (and answers) How can we help our children learn sharing?
In a fun twist, since we now have four hosts we will also have FOUR FEATURES.... but you will have to go check out the other three blogs to see if you were featured there! 😉
My featured post this week is: 10 Outrageous Dessert Pins that will Drive you Crazy from Sinea at Ducks 'n a Row. I almost didn't chose this because I fear if you go check it out, you might not come back here. M'eh check it out anyway. So much deliciousness.
Now time for the new stuff!
This a link-up for all things funny, fun, encouraging, hopeful, and happy. That includes free printables, giveaways, and other fun stuff to make us SMILE and start the weekend off on the right foot.
If you're here in search of fun and uplifting reading materials, skip the rules and just start clickin'!
Bloggy buddies, thanks for coming to par-tay!

I always love to see what you bring to the party. I am tempted to feature you every week, but I gotta share the love.
Elizabeth @ Guilty Chocoholic Mama says
This is just so helpful! Pinned to my "bloggy stuff" board. A thousand thanks as always for this welcoming, encouraging party. Happy 4th of July weekend...may it be mosquito-free except for your clip art cutie! 😉
Audrey Humaciu says
Knock on wood I haven't seen a mosquito around these parts since we moved here a decade ago. Now hornworms are another matter...
Jess Powell (Babi a Fi) says
Really useful list! I love the little frog series - they're so cute. 🙂 #FridayFrivolity
Audrey Humaciu says
I don't use stock images often, but sometimes they have just what I need. The full list on the IBA site is a great pin too.
