#1 #2 #6 & #9 are spectacular to my eyes. I've mentioned I don't care much for moon shots....so I see you posted three this time!

That first one is too gorgeous for words, just perfect!

Otis says these are certainly worthy! ....I agree!


We love your work here FS....it has the highest standards, and beats the hell out of tree rodents, although they do have their place....I'm just not sure where it is!

Not a shot from me today, not a click. I spent most of the day at the hospital getting a heart stress test. I'm not sure why? I keep telling them my heart is just fine, it's my brain that may need some attention. Anyhow, it all went well and I can relax now that it's over.

Wait! Here is a shot! The worst part of my day...pulling off all the electrodes when I got home....those chest hairs make you flinch a little!

Shot with my Bigma! Too lazy to swap lenses!

Alcohol makes many things easier to manage...

Alcohol....the wonder drug! I should have remembered that! I first learned that in the back seat of my old '55 Chevy in High School....a little alcohol could ease off things that were otherwise quite difficult to remove.

From its size I'd say the squirrel is winning hands(or should that be claws)down!

It's not fair when they can carry two or three at a time!

Thanks FS!:) That's why Otis has asked for a few dozen little wheelbarrows for Christmas!

Early morning fog....cold and still. She was the only creature out in the Woods of Otis...waiting to be first in the feeding line when I put out the feed.

I hung some new dead leaves far behind the Cheater Branch to get some new bokeh. I need to make a few adjustments but I think it will be fine.
I talked this little squirrel into posing for a test shot...he was not anxious to pose up there....said he was afraid of heights.



Regards!

Edit: Got the ladder and went out to adjust the leaves, soon got a chance at a dove on the Cheater Branch.....looks much better now...at least to my eyes!
