Camera Critters

Camera Critters is another fun meme hosted by Misty Dawn. You can find other critter photos by clicking on the icon above. Thank you Misty.

This is a regular visitor on our deck out back. I think he must be the boss as if any other squirrel tries to get near to what he is feeding on, he stands at the ready and his tail becomes a blur, a whirilgig of motion. Squirrels are an endless source of entertainment.

What a great set of photos of a furry guy, he certainly doesn't look like he is starving.

Squirrels are so fun to watch, especially the tails. Great blurry tail shot, it's my favorite.

Janie said...

I do love to watch squirrels. You got some great photos of this one.

We had a horse chestnut tree in front of our house in Illinois. Every squirrel in a 10 mile radius must have been at our house in September and October. We had so much fun watching their antics. Your photos were a very happy reminder. No squirrels in Hawaii.

The swishing tail shots are so cool. You captured that perfectly--every other body part is frozen, but the tail almost takes on a life of its own. Great job!

Very cute, but I have to say that I have been traumatized by squirrels in the past, so I'm not all that keen on them in real life - photos are close enough :)

Happy Critturday!

it always amazes me how agile they are!

Janet Creamer said...

Aww! How cute! I like how he is sitting up.

Squirells are so charismatic. And I definitely prefer to see them frisking about a bird table than the smell of squirrel skewers being cooked...only in China!

diane said...

he looks at home here. Great shots.

Eve said...

You did a great job with the wiggling tail Denise!! Ha Ha!!!

Mary said...

Sounds like my bossy "Star"! They do get that tail going when they are excited or alarmed! Very cute photos!

Manz said...

Those "blurry tail" images are wonderful! They show so much of the character of the squirrel by having the body crisp and the tail so full of movement.

Thanks for sharing.

We have a dominant squirrel around here, too. It loves to get just out of Oskar's reach & torment him!

Great photos!
