I mentioned in last week’s Saturday Squirrel feature that I got a new camera for Christmas… one that takes much better pictures than the one I had for four years which supplied all of the other squirrel pictures I have taken. One thing this camera captures much better than the old one is squirrels in motion. This is what I used to get…. above is one of the picture from my first batch I took with the new camera last Friday.
WOW! Now that is an awesome picture of a squirrel leaping onto a tree! He looks like he’s just hanging there in suspended animation… and in near perfect focus! If this is a sign of what I might be able to capture with this new camera, I should have many fantastic pictures to show off this year for my weekly Saturday Squirrel.
Here’s another one I took just before that of a squirrel hopping down my street…
I can’t wait to finally capture one leaping high up in a tree… it will happen!
Well, assuming my squirrels survive the bitterly cold weather we’re going to be getting Sunday through Tuesday…. cold we haven’t seen the likes of since at least 1996. I hope my buddies survive out there… especially the young red tailed Foxy.
Stay warm out there this weekend!
