Camera Critters


Camera Critters is another wonderful meme hosted by Misty Dawn. Thanks Misty. You can find other critter photos by clicking on the icon above.
Many have probably figured out by now that I often take pictures of one of my favorite animals, the squirrel. This is a photo of one nibbling on a dried corncob. The original photo came out very blurry and when that happens, after my initial reaction of dissapointment, I start playing around in Paint Shop Pro and try to make the best of it. This is using the colored pencil effect.

  7. Neat picture of one of my favorites.

    Such wonderful places, so different from where I have lived. The Hamlet of Gordon, Ohio is where I was born and raised and it is how small hamlets used to be and this one still exists.
