Gee? I guess the lawsuit scared you guy off? Where the heck are you? Are you hiding out until this blows over? Like I said, there is no need to worry, Otis will handle it soon enough.
I was negotiating with the attorney a guilty plea or an anonymous reporting on Otis' behavior...
Nice doves and birds !

Superb shot dakight !

#1 & #2 are superb to me, but #3 #6 & #10 are too close to call......however, the winner is definitely the little clump of gravy on a stick. Excellent! Otis says it's a novel idea and could be a money maker too. Just like a pop-sickle, gravy on a stick could sell by the billions!

FS.....Otis is way ahead of you and your attempt to negotiate a defense. Word is he has turned into a "protected witness" and is claiming that you and the rest of us here are guilty of forcing him into his terroristic acts on little birdies, against his will. His lawyer, Louie Squirrel, is calling for us to be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. It's pretty hard to outsmart Otis.

Some warm gravy from late last evening....






There is some clone work in reattaching the end of that cheater branch to make the frame/shot more appealing. I admit it, after all it is a cheater branch, installed by a cheater, so why not? These are the sort of things that make Otis proud!

Regards!

Just heard from this little guy that Otis has become a snitch in the Witness Protection program and blames all of us here for his bad actions, which he says were forced upon him. I'm so disappointed in Otis....I thought he would stand by his friends, but I guess I was wrong?

"Yep, Otis is no longer a squirrel, he has turned into a stinkin' rat!"


I'm not worried, we did nothing wrong...it was all Otis and he knows it.

Regards!

Here is some gravy that is mediocre at best, but I did like the bokeh and lighting.

FS...Otis, posting from his prison cell where he awaits trial on charges of attempted decapitation of a little dovey bird, sent me these as part of his new product line called "Gravy on a Stick". Soon to be sold on E-Bay, they are claimed to be delicious and easily prepared.

He regrets that they are shot at ISO 6400 and not in perfect focus, but reminds that this in no way affects the smooth gravy-like flavor.





Regards! ...Reminder...if the PETA guys come by and question you, remember, you don't know Otis...never even heard of him!

Just in.....Otis has been placed under a gag order so I have no idea what bad things he is saying about us now. He must be lying to PETA, hell, we don't even know him!

Gag Otis, Gag!


One from this morning that the filthy mouth Otis would call "gravy". We all see it as a sweet little female Cardinal! That's because we are not mean spirited animals like that Otis fellow...whoever he is?

Since PETA has taken up our abuse of poor little birdies, we are not familiar with the word "gravy" here, but since you are, maybe they will turn their attention toward you? If you suddenly disappear, we will know why!

Nice birdie shot, your mountain shot reminds me a lot of the Chisos mountains of Big Bend. Nice shot!

Regards!

A few from yesterday...the birdies are wonderful...the shots are fair to OK. I'm not a culinary expert, but if I was, I'd say gravy is on the menu!

Breaking News!: I have a new Bigma 50-500 coming tomorrow or Saturday. It is the newer HSM OS model and I hope to do some gravy training with it as soon as possible. Not sure it will improve my lowly skills, but it will add to my fun no doubt! As much as I shoot gravy shots, sooner or later I almost have to get better at it?

I am willing to trade my old (and still excellent!) Bigma 50-500 and a box of 25 healthy squirrels (not the blind orphans) to FS for his Magic Bokeh lens. He should take the offer now before Otis' Army locates his place and steals his lens...he has to know that sooner or later they will.

A quick pic of my dad's old Ford Tractor. Still learning, but thought it turned out interesting.
