Down in the ravine
Lens: Vivitar (Kiron) 75-205 1:3.8 Camera: K-30 Photo Location: WV

I spent several hours in the ravine below my house this morning, scouting for wildlife with my K-30 and Vivitar 75-205. Lots of fun, relaxing, even entertaining. I didn't realize Rocky the Flying Squirrel was in the tree right above me until he panicked and came flying out of the tree, down the branches right in front of me. I had less than 5 seconds to lift the camera, focus, and shoot. Didn't quite nail the focus on the squirrel, but close enough. The twisted American Hornbeam at the end is just because I like gnarled, twisted trees.
