Babies are Coming!
Camera: Fuji X20 Photo Location: Texas ISO: 800 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F3.5 
Posted By: Rupert, 06-05-2013, 09:09 PM

The Daddy & Mama come around every night, This evening the Mama came first and robbed the squirrel feeders, then she got a nice meal of leftover roast turkey. I feed them every evening, I want them to have strong healthy babies like they did last year!

A little thievery, it's their trademark!

She's not afraid of me, but keeps her distance...and I keep mine!

Regards!

BTW- For those that want to see Otis.....I shot this one today with the Toy Camera X20. You can tell by the look on his face that he was not happy with anything less than the K5 and Bigma!

Otis sent his regards!

Thanks Eaglem! I'm looking forward to more little babies soon! They are a lot of fun to watch playing in my yard.

Come on guys, you wouldn't want to do that to these little critters! They're almost like family around my place.....Otis and his Army by day....Raccoons and Possums by night. Did I mention possums?

They come often too! It's easy pickins' around old Rupert's place! They are ugly critters, I can relate, but they have to eat just like I do!

Found this baby in my shop window one morning...still don't know how he got in there?
