Picture Perfect?

One morning while I was at the farm, I heard the chatter of the squirrels in the trees. I jumped up to get my camera and this little fellow spotted me, I swear he was like lightning, scurrying amongst the trees, playing peek a boo. Finally this is the one good shot I got of him, I saw him a few times over the weekend. He reminded me of the little gopher in the movie Caddy Shack. I was in his way, all I wanted was a photo, he was on the hunt for food. Have you ever been scolded by a squirrel? Well I was that day. the nerve of him! It was as if I was being told to get off the property you tresspassing stranger you. Well I am not one to give up easily but I decided I had better things to do than chase a squirrel all day. So off I went searching for the perfect next picture. Myabe the dog, you can never go wrong with a picture of a dog, or maybe the cats. I did know there would be no more darn squirrels for me.


  1. Great squirrel shot. I've never had the pleasure of hanging out with a squirrel, but I've met lots of possums.

  2. PS the photo of the poppy is very beautiful. Is it from your garden?

  3. they are squirrely little things, those squirrels, ain't they? but those tails! and yes, I remember the sound of their scoldings from when I lived in Maryland -- I'd forgotten until you wrote that!

  4. Hi Ribbon, I don't think I would want to hang out with a possum, and yes the picture of the poppy is from my garden from last summer. I have blue, white,pink, red, I never know what will come up where, the birds and wind scatters the seeds so it is always a surprise!

  5. Hi Toni, love their tails, I think they balance with them, I don't know. LOL. Glad to remind you of when you were in Maryland. I have to tell you I loved the pictures you took of yourself. Great Job, Take Care.
