Otis sends Hubble his thanks and will pass that around to his giant Army of Squirrels for their viewing pleasure!

Like every night of the year, my raccoon family was here last night. Amazing to me that I can get good AF in the darkness of my deck area with the K1+Tamron 70-200 2.8! I don't like flash but it will get you a shot!

"Yep, I knocked my feed bowl over...what are you gonna do about it?"


"Can I get a pound of bacon to go with my biscuit...please?"


"Where's my waitress? I ordered a beer 30 minutes ago."


I learned something last night. There were 4 youngsters on my deck enjoying the food and playing around like little kids. As is sometimes the case, they all went under the gate and disappeared in an instant and were gone for about an hour. It wasn't that I spooked them, they are totally comfortable with me and with the camera and flash.Last night just a second befor they all scurried off I heard a guttural sound on the other side of the fence. As I looked over the fence in the darkness I could see the cubs heading into the wood with Mama raccoon following them. Apparently she had called them for whatever reason? They do have their own language, though unlike with squirrels, I only understand those few words I hear often...."More Food!!"...."Pizza Please!!"

Regards!

While artistically the B&W is a stunner, I have to admit the first shot was the one that got me...it is so cute it made me say "Awwww"...
Great shots Vincent, thanks for sharing.

Using for comparative needs, that thing is a toy against the one mounted in the A10 Thunderbolt


Yes, the A10, equipped with the 30mm cannon, is quite the formidable piece of hardware. But the gun is forward facing.


The Douglas AC-47 equipped with 3 miniguns was a very effective tool. Even at a smaller caliber.

It could orbit the target for hours, providing suppressing fire over an elliptical area approximately 52 yd (47.5 m) in diameter, placing a round every 2.4 yd (2.2 m) during a three-second burst.

Somehow the image with Victoria instantly brought to mind an ancient photo (late 19th century?) called "Babes in the Woods*:" a boy and girl similarly attired in near ankle-length loose-fitting garb. with big badly-worn, poorly-tied shoes, walking away from you, camera placed low, almost at ground level. I've seen the image many times, but efforts to GOOGLE it have failed. It evokes a certain age, innocence and vulnerability.

*The title comes from a once-popular children's story, and it has been used and reused for many images, photographic and painted.
