My reflexes were a tad slow, or my aim was too low. In the upper left corner you can see Blue Jay doing 'exit stage right' when scared by squirrel who came up from behind feeder.

How cute, your squirrels are. I like the ones with fur on their ears. TFS

I have one as our oak trees are full of acorns this year, they're burying them as fast as they fall or as fast as they can clip the small branches off.

This little girl was sucking up the sap earlier, but after a bit she moved, evidently not gracefully.

I got a great deal on a Super-Multi-Coated Takumar 5.6 400mm at a thrift shop. It's in very nice clean condition inside and out with a tripod collar.
Tested it out in the backyard today;

One from today's SIC:



They've been scarce lately, even though I'm still putting out the sap, the sunflower seeds and peanuts, there is not a lot of them around.

@redox61 What a neat series of shots!:):) They can be friendly little fellows...if you have some good eats for them!:D

I had to stop hand feeding mine when they decided to start spitting on me when I didn't deliver their "special orders"...like exotic nuts from the Amazon, and ice cold beer.....:(

Also almost a week without internet connection but I still had power/electric. But I'm back in form today. ;)

Here are few squirrels I shot while waiting on the net to come back.




This one from today.


The first two were shot as jpg and with my K-30 Blue Boy, it developed a problem where it wouldn't let me set the date and kept reverting to another month, then it wouldn't let me change the day other than 01 to 12. So yesterday afternoon I pulled the battery and left it out for 24 hours,
Today I reinstalled the battery and reset my other settings all is well. To me this is procedure is like resetting the CMOS in a computer. I hope it keeps it's settings now.

Out in Kensington Gardens again testing an 18-55 lens on my Nikon. Not as close as I would have liked, the little sod didn't want to cooperate, but I think he was cute:





full size versions and the rest of the shoot are here:

Photography has taken a backseat to the rest of life for a bit, so I've been away and didn't see this! I may have posted this image elsewhere years back, but it's one of my very first shots as a Pentaxian!

I've been digitizing some old negatives and slides taken back when I was shooting film with Pentax cameras, starting with the SPF. I came across this one taken with a Pentax ME in 1979, with a Sigma 70-210mm zoom (I think!). Seems a little close to have been taken with my 55mm ƒ/1.8 prime, but who can remember? Anyway, it was taken at Half Moon Bay in San Francisco when I was out there on business for a month or so. And, no, I didn't supply the nut!

this guy isn't worried about hawks

he is raiding the 3 acre plus enclosure for the Chimpanzees at the Kansas City Zoo

they hunt raiders and have been know to capture them and push them through the enclosure's fences as a "gift" to the keepers

[ another of the photos taken today with the new lens I acquired today, more practice will be needed ]

we moved the peanut feeder

the birds have figured it out but this youngster is having real problems

and yes...the nectar is red

this is the first year we have had hummers all summer
the early birds have moved on and the migrants showed up within a day of their annual arrival

none of them would take the clear nectar
a couple of the early birds tasted it
then just fed on the flowers we had planted for them
the current hummers wouldn't even look at it until we changed it to red
