Your Sunday Squirrel

We went to Denny Park yesterday and were set upon by four squirrels, but out of all of them, only this guy was photogenic.  I have many other shots of him for another time; a time when all of Denny Park's squirrels are unphotogenic.  Sweet Becko prefers to use burst mode to photograph squirrels.  I started using it, too.  But I find that the recommended photos (the ones with the dots under them) have little to no correspondence with quality shots.  I have no idea what the criteria is.  For example, that second shot is really nice.  It's part of a burst, but it wasn't recommended.  Instead, a blurry shot with the squirrel moving around was.  I guess the moral of the story is to never trust technology.  Use it, yes, but don't trust it.  If you do, the next thing you know, you'll be enslaved by robots who force you to mine metal to build more robots.  That's where that gets you.  But you can always trust squirrels.  They won't enslave you.

We Went to the Kangaroo Place!

Yesterday, my lovely wife and some friends went to the Outback Kangaroo Farm in Arlington.  It was my third visit.  As usual, it was wonderful.  And there were a lot more than kangaroos and wallabies.  I already posted at FB, but here are more pics:
A pensive guy...

Rasslin' wallabies...
Mere milliseconds after this shot, this fellow had a little nip of Sweet Becko's finger.
 The mini-horse is a jerk.  Always has been.  Always will be.


The alpacas will take a pellet from you.  They're quite nice about it.

What intimacy issues??

 Apparently, they can see quite well.

Sweet Becko and a giant bunny.  This one is only three months old.

 Stacey's bunny; also just three months.

Basking lemurs!

Again, a great time was had by all.

This guy is from a few weeks ago.  Squirrels can't smile.  But if you get a shot of them from a certain angle, they almost appear to be smiling.  I'm pretty-super lucky that this is so in focus.  He was moving around quite a bit, but the moment was nicely captured.  And yes, he got a peanut.  Lots of them.

Speaking of that...

Here is a shot that Sweet Becko took just yesterday.  I had some good pics, too, but this was really nice.  We only met one squirrel, but he was very hungry and even more photogenic.

I apologize for my lengthy absence.  I have a good excuse!  I got married.  And I also recorded two albums and all the while, I was working full time.  But hey, I still go out and take squirrel pictures.  Or, I should say that my lovely wife and I go out and take squirrel pics.  She's quite good at it.  I've featured her shots here before.  I will feature some again.  Anyhow, here's just a sampling of what I've gotten recently.  I hope to update more regularly now that all the vows are said and all the tracks are in the can.  Enjoy!
