Morning all

Well after my perseverance on Thursday night to get some nice close up shots
of squirrels at the park near work I decided to go again last night. It was a
similar experience with hesitance from Cyril at first but I didn't have to wait
quite as long this time before he decided his desire for food was greater than
his fear of this being that was so much larger than himself.


Watcha mush





Peanuts you say ? Ah go on then.. I'm a bit Hank Marvin truth be told. Not
had mi tea yet ya see.

First and last for me. But they all show off the ability of the MX-1 and yourself of course.

Great stuff. That last one is a cracker. So characterful.

Still loving mine and I presume from this thread you feel the same.

I was pig sick on Thursday. Stopped at the Motorway Services as you enter Wales from the Ellesmere Port side and, whilst I was sat eating McD's outside three cheeky birds, of the feathered variety, sat on the table begging for chips. The MX-1 was in the glove compartment. So near yet so far lol.

Top tip...a packet of McD's chips is a damn sight cheaper than a DA300 and 1.4TC haha

Sometimes I'm serious and sometimes not, but I consider sarcasm an artform. Which is it today?

Nice set Mike

He seems like a friendly little fella

McD's Chips Steve I thought that you and the birds had better taste
K10D, K5 plus plenty of clueless enthusiasm.

Nice set, amazing how greed will overcome fear Just one tiny thing, the ear is clipped in a couple of them but still good shots under the circumstances.

Sitting in Bournemouth gardens, one raced a across my knee's, they will sit on your lap if you don't threaten them (on your head if you don't watch out). One of the female one's ears is clipped because she got into a fight with another squirrel.
Always be kind to people
