LOL...you actually got this squirrel smiling at you Tess. I think he thinks your crazy LOL.... You must have to make a fast exit from the park when you run out of walnuts, it could get nasty!

Fantastic image Tess It's one of the best squirrel photos I have ever seen. #1204062

If I sit here and finish this one, she'll give me another one. Can she ever be trained easily. It must be that Nikon thingy stuck on her face!! #8124609

Thank you, thank you! These furry little faces absolutely crack me up sometimes, and I was so delighted that this one came out well enough to share!

All of your wonderful comments are very much appreciated!

p.s. - well Gord, the few times I've run out of walnuts, I've actually left the park, driven to the nearest market, and bought a new bag! #8128369

Kay Beausoleil level-classic 11/13/2009 10:27:56 AM

Hi Tess,

I just checked out your gallery - you have fantastic squirrel images - AND - I have to agree with Usman that this is the BEST squirrel shot I've ever seen!!! What lens did you use? #8337742

Tess L. Yee 1/28/2010 12:26:28 PM

Thank you for the great comments, Songbird and Rona!

This was shot with the Micro-Nikkor 105/f2.8 (hence the shallow DOF). #8337781

Amanda D. Austwick level-classic 1/30/2010 2:01:10 PM

Love your squirrel images, especially this one! I think that it should have gotten more than an EP!
I also love the little squirrel comments added to the photos. #8342752

Description

There really IS a NikonMonster! And she really DOES go around tossing walnuts to squirrels! And, and... and LOOK! I have one of those walnuts!

Hmmm.

They were right about something else, too. She never puts that Nikon thingy down. I mean, NEVER. It's like it's glued to her face or something.

But HEY! She gives away free walnuts! And, she's got JOKES!!

(they never mentioned that part)
