Some may think photography is boring, and squirrel photography in particular is too frustrating. But all of the hard work and patience can and will eventually pay off, as you’ve no doubt seen time and time again in my collection of squirrel prints. Tens of thousands of wasted shots will yield several hundred absolute keepers…. and occasionally, if the luck of every unicorn in existence is with you…. you just might capture something that can’t be anticipated. Like a near perfect shot of a squirrel in midleap onto a tree!
I was able to make trip #21 to the park on Thursday, and this was the crown jewel of that one hour tour. 209 photos taken…. only 53 worthy of being spared the delete button… and yet, totally worth it to get a shot like this! Sure there’s some blur, outside of perfect light conditions, a moving squirrel will always blur… but not enough that you can’t make out exactly what you’re seeing. I will get a little excited when I check the camera screen to see I got a really neat photo… but I actually did a rather animated fist pump when I discovered how perfect my timing was on this shot! Here’s to Saturday Squirrels worth celebrating!
Have a great weekend everyone!
