Obstructed View

How's this?  Can you see me now?

How’s this? Can you see me now?

Unlike the trees in a child’s drawing or a happy little Bob Ross painting, the ones in real life do not just have a trunk with a canopy of leaves on top of it.  There are a lot of small branches and sqturday squirrel logotwigs protruding out from all directions just about everywhere!  This is one of the hazards I often come across while trying to get cute pictures of squirrels to submit for your approval.  Look at this image…. it coulda been a contender!  Instead, it’s just another photo fail thank to that stupid little branch that bisects that cute fuzzy face behind it.  Sorry buddy… I really tried to give you the Saturday Squirrel fame you so deserved when you looked my way, but Mother Nature saw a cruel need to censor your visage from an adoring public.  At least nobody will see that giant zit on your nose now…

Have a great, unobstructed weekend everyone!

  1. Living, as I do, in the woods, I bump into this all the time photographing pretty much everything. There is always a twig or a branch right where I don’t want it to be. The perils of nature photography are infinite 🙂

    Hey, good picture! Who cares if there are a couple twigs in the way, you can see 98% of the little critter!! ((hugs)) T.

    I think it is a great shot – he looks like he is barking at you!

    Damn branches, they’re always in the way! At least the squirrel looks cute peeking around it.

    • Not much can ruin a cute squirrel photo… and it helps that the branch and the squirrel’s face are both cocked at the same angle. If it weren’t slightly off-center, it’d be perfect!

    I think it looks really cool with him staring around both sides of the twig at once!

  6. I think he’s laughing at you…….he knows you can’t get a perfect shot of his fuzzface if he sits still behind that bisecting branch! Smarty pants!
