Back into photographing our backyard squirrel for 2012. He hasn't forgotten where the peanuts are:



Here's how I get the photos. Camera Canon SX30 superzoom, set at widest angle (24mm equivalent), f/8, ISO 400, close-up mode, flash popped up (its not in this shot). Bait with a fresh peanut, stay still until he's in the viewfinder and shoot. He takes the peanuts and buries them in the soft soil in the wife's garden, comes back fairly fast for another one.

I tried using my DSLR a few times, but the noise of the tripping shutter startles the squirrel too much. Even the silent electronic shutter in this camera causes him to flinch at times.




Let the summer activities begin!

The birds are back in full force and the Cardinals seem to be the hungriest.

This Click Beetle (about 1.5" long) was dead in the driveway. (Those are false eyes.)

Here's something I haven't seen before.
A pinto moose from Idaho this past February.

for the last month or so, we've had this black bird in the garden, we think its nesting with his partner in one of the bushes. anyway we put out alot of food for the birds and often bits of dry fruit, when that runs out he'll come towards the door for the last few days hes been flying to the handle when he wants fomr fruit


its now at the point where ive put some stuff right by the back door and he'll come up to an open door and stretch up and have a good look around, he still flys away from us and keeps his distance though

Andy, blackbirds are very easy to tame, I have a female one who literally hops arond my feet while I'm trying to put food on the bird-table, given half a chance she will come into the house too.

When we were out at Doug's G scale operations the other night I caught this Chickadee in the cedars.

Thought I'd add this one.

Our cats, Jackson and Grissom had their vet appointment the other day. While Jackson, howled, and preferred the safer confinds of his carrier, Grissom, shown below, wanted to ride "shotgun" and enjoy the view!



He was very good not to "back-seat" drive, too!

Enjoy,

Michael

Something different for me, a small red squirrel, as there are only the larger grey ones around our home. Visited a local nature park this morning, and these little critters are always around scrounging food from visitors. Some peanuts and sunflower seeds brought a bunch of them out for some photo ops!
