Don't you know she was the distraction, so you wouldn't hear their plans? Nice shot!
Yes, it is Top Secret stuff, but what Otis doesn't realize is that once those Army squirrels get a few cold beers in their little bellies they sing like canaries! You wouldn't believe all the things I've heard over the years. The latest plan is to gnaw all the phone and cable lines in the nation, including those hundreds of lines on cell towers and watch us all go insane and destroy each other, leaving the land free of humans and safe for squirrels to plunder and pillage.

I don't understand the need, I thought they had already mastered plunder and pillage?

Tomorrow is always "World Domination Day" where Otis lays out plans to enslave the human race and make us all climb trees and harvest exotic nuts......for squirrels only. I once asked him why not just tax us to death, and he said others had already beat him to that!

Anyhow, it is never boring with Otis and his Army around! The raccoons fill in the gap at night, they have some pretty wild imaginations too.....like getting in my neighbors attic and busting through the ceiling to feed on everything in his house while he is on vacation and vandalizing it worse than a pack of wild teens with a few cases of beer under their belt.... I had to point out to the raccoons....You guys have already done that once!

Regards!

Who knows, maybe you will put on a few pounds and fit right in? All it takes is the right food, and plenty of it!
Anybody has its own ideals, an ideal sphere in this case...

Not for peanuts? How about a little afternoon siesta?

Nothing more appealing to girlie squirrels than a squirrel with big nuts! No wonder Otis is so popular!

All my wildlife shots are, in fact, wildlife. No zoos, reserves, etc.
I like that shot! ...and it is very natural! Hard to say mine are "natural" when most of these squirrels will eat out of my hand, are fed twice daily, and are pampered like royalty.

She wanted to show off her new winter coat......claims it is cashmere, but I think she is exaggerating?


Wanna get happy? All it takes is a bag of roasted peanuts!

Sadly, Rupert, there has been an apparent decline in the squirrel population by me over the last few years.

I'm sure the oil in peanuts is conducive to a lustrous, luxurious coat.

Here's a pic from last year, taken with a Maksutov 550/8.8 mirror lens:

Maybe they have all come here and joined the Army of Otis? There must be millions out there in those Woods of Otis....I could send you a few crates full?

That's a nice shot...but if they are down to eating leaves, no wonder they are leaving!

Never a shortage of feed here!

Finally got one for you, Rupert. There's a couple more that might be salvageable, need to do some processing. Shot on an old FA 28-105m zoom. Kindof liking this lens save for the power zoom. Focus was a little strange, probably something i did.
