Well so much for global warming, its cold here and the next 15 days does not promise much but more of the single digit days. Even the birds a smart enough to stay covered up.

Yesterday my good friend John (yjeep) came over and we spent several hours in the hide, we drank coffee, told stories and shot birds as they came in for a quick bite. The sun only showed itself for a couple of quick peeks, but for the most part it was very poor lighting. Anyways managed some shots of Wrens, Woodpeckers and Squirrels. Figured I give you all a break from birds though and post a Squirrel. Keep warm and I will visit you all out on the site.

You guys get to have all the fun! Maybe someday I can visit. For now I'll just enjoy the results. I like this because it is not the usual squirrel shot but shows real personality!

22 Jan 2008 2:25AM
What a cute squirrel...what I really love is the colour of the fence It works well with the squirrel and the background...a sort of monochromatic feel...
