Great shots, Rupert. Glad that managed to get your camera back in at least partially working order.
Thanks JVA...it is not easy for me to shoot MF but I am trying my best to make it work for now so I can stay here with you guys.

That's a superb shot Rupert !

Thanks FS
.....even angry they are damn handsome!

Here is some sweetness......MonaLisa Squirrel asked to pose on the Cheater Branch for a portrait for Otis. I can see from her little grin and big belly that she is near to delivering some little baby Otis offspring soon.....she seemed very pleased about it!



My MF abilities were weak here, but I kept it anyhow...I just loved the Bigma bokeh in this one!



Otis will be handing out cigars in a couple of weeks...you guys want one? If you pass I will understand...he bought a few cases of them at the local Dollar General Store.......the boxes say "Genuine Cuban Placebos". He was proud to show me that they were "genuine".

Regards!

More fine shote, FS, and is that a self portrait?

Here are a few more shots of Mayan ruins in which I've experimented with different styles of post production. The last one is meant to look as though it came from an issue of the National Geographic in my youth. I suspect that I overdid it a little.

Otis knew that right away...he said ..."I'd like to wipe that smug Canonist look off that guys face!"

Wonderfuls shots again FS...the little birdie stole my heart...Otis too. #11 also caught my eye very nicely.

On #12 Otis commented......"Looky there! FS made a boo-boo all over the floor!"

Sorry FS...Otis does not like a Canonist over here!

Great shooting JVA...and the last one is indeed very well done and authentic to your intended rendering! So how was your visit there? You can share, we have plenty of room here!

Very nice Micro
....good lookin' kitty too! Otis thanks you and your kitty would thank you if he had tangled with one of Otis Ninja squirrels!

Warning: Don't let your kitty watch this, it is damn scary!

MF is not for me.....I get everything wrong...had to push this one 3 stops this morning. Still...the squirrel turned out damn handsome!

My MF abilities are not improving much, but I did get this little girly squirrel this morning fairly sharp.....She is soon to have little babies and looks pretty pleased about it.....or maybe she is just happy she found a roasted peanut?

FS...This little girly was shocked that Otis only gave you a "Mostly" award...she found it unreasonable.

She was outraged, maybe Otis will issue you an apology...but don't count on it!

Wonderful shot...best viewed on Flicker in the larger size! Been missing you over here, you need to show up more often!

Nothing much here this morning...just another damn squirrel.
