Crazy for Pine Nuts

By griz11
I was standing in the drive and noticed a lot of debris. A couple of squirrels were devouring pine cones in the tree above my head.

I sure wanted to get to the other side of it to get a better sky but I was afraid it would see me and leave. They must have been really good pine nuts because they sat there for a long time before running to a tree on the other side of the street. Didn't even see the second one until they decided to run. Got a couple of them running with all 4 legs off the ground and a cone in the mouth but I didn't have the f-stop set deep enough. Since they were running away from me part of them is in focus part is not Sad Its been a great 3 weeks here with my brother. I have tons of pictures to process when I get home. I spent a lot of time on the dyke trying to get my BIF pictures down and getting used to using the gimbal. A big drag boat meet this weekend near my home. Then 3 big races coming up in the fall in Austin. Might have a pass for the WEC endurance cars. Life is good.
