When God Gives You Squirrels
This mornings photography didn't last long. I got up too late and the light was already starting to go by the time I climbed the photoblnd. The Bandatail Pigeons showed up today and were crashing around in the trees above the blind. They are amazing fliers but they are not very graceful when landing. One pigeon tried several times to come down to the feeders but something scared it off each time. They are extremely wary. Not too many birds came to the feeders but one tenacious Western Gray Squirrel stayed at the bird feeder for a long time. So my offering today is a squirrel portrait. Have a wonderful day, chris Camera Equipment Used- Canon 7D, Canon EF 100-400mm f/4.5-5.6L IS USM Lens @400 mm, Manfrotto 055XPROB Tripod with a 3055 Ballhead.
