My Sunday Photo 25: 2 Very Nutty Squirrels

Precious Sparkle and I were on our way back to church when I spotted a couple feeding 2 Squirrels in the green space behind another church. I was so delighted I had my camera with me, and it didn’t take long to snap away. My little man was happy watching the squirrels dart around, here and there, as they tried to catch the nuts being thrown at them. My word, what a pair of very nutty Squirrels they were.

My Sunday Photo 23: The Squirreling Squirrel

Quick / Snap / Go

Thanks to everyone who dropped by last week to check out my captured lovely older Cygnets, it meant a lot to me. I continue to adjust to the current waves in my life and find my blogging feet again.

I’m sharing a lovely quiet moment that I had with this squirreling squirrel just before the May half-term school holiday, when my work life took an unexpected but unsurprising turn. I was on my way home, carrying my work stuff, with my camera bag dangling from my shoulder when the scene started unfolding.

I had just walked past my head teacher’s office when I noticed my furry ‘friend’ nearby. As I have now down eons of times, I quickly got the camera out of its bag, positioned it, found my focus, and snapped away.

I must say Squirrels, like many other animals are fun to watch but I’d prefer to do this from a distance. One of the fab things about my camera is its 30x zoom; it allows me to get close to my subject even when I’m far from it. 🙂

It’s nearest ear looks like a raised tiny hand. I suppose it’s seen some nibbling 🙁

I’m not a fan of Squirrels but I find them fascinating. They are so quick on their feet and I keep trying to capture them in action.

I mean, they are here … there … everywhere and nowhere, before you know it. You can get dizzy and tired just by watching them, as they criss-cross all over the place.

Squirrels are so small and cute; and way too friendly for my liking a lot of times (in public spaces in England). My word, they can run super fast and climb to the top of a tree in the blink of an eye.

Even then, they have split second moments, when they stay still … really still enough to watch you whilst you watch them … and perhaps capture them on your camera if you so desire, like I did. 🙂
