Can We Talk- An Otis Story
Lens: Bigma 50-500 Camera: K5 Photo Location: Texas ISO: 1000 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F5.6

Hello friends, I miss you guys! The Big Ugly guy you call Rupert is not as involved as he once was. Since he got that stupid little "Studio" and started shooting girls and kids, he just hasn't been the same...and that's a shame, because he was never worth much anyhow!

So, what can you do when the Big Ugly fails to keep the feeders full?

It is a serious problem, you know, we get hungry too!

If you can see a little left on the bottom, you are obligated to try and get it....if you are as smart as I am!

Just go for it! No risk, no gain! It's like going off the high dive at the local pool...I do it all the time!

I hope I'm in here when he dumps in the next load of feed! Talk about heaven!!! Great place on a rainy day too!

You have to come up for air every so often.....

And to take a look around for any lurking competition. You can eat while your looking!

See how easy that was! Puts a smile on my handsome face every time! Hope it puts a smile on yours too!

Best Regards to my Pals here at PF!

Thanks guys!, these are not really "good" shots, but they were fun shots! It was the first time in a while Otis has agreed to do some posing. We're not on the best of terms, but maybe we will get there again if he can see that his Army leaves my Jeep alone. When he was inside the box, I considered nailing it shut, but I looked around and there must have been a hundred or more Army Squirrels within sight. I would have been a goner before the first nail was in the wood.

Best Regards!

Nice to see Otis again!

Don't let him see this pic - there is so much feed in the feeders in Virgina that it takes 2 to work together:

Cute story and pics but I think Otis has a way to go to beat this squirrel and the effort he puts in to get the prize!

Tako- Otis wants to ask you...who do you think trained that squirrel? His worldwide Army of Squirrels is a well oiled machine, amazing in its capabilities!

For some reason I was thinking I would like a "Rupert Story" right now - so I randomly picked an old page - and I found a genuine "Rupert", Life is good .... but I still miss 'Big Ugly Guy'.
