In Your!

Uploaded: March 10, 2010


I recently remarked on an MT image that unless the squirrels took up photography, I wouldn't be posting an MT entry. I asked my gal Faux to help, but my black Nikon thingy's were too much for her little paws. Frustrated, I watched her disappear up a tree with (yet another) nut. Along came Pearcy (more on her another day), begging for breakfast. Little did I realize that while she innocently munched away, I was indeed taking photos of a 'photographer'...ME!

I was thinking of various witty remarks about nuts and squirrel vision. Rather, I must say this is a brilliant image, Tess. It is no easy thing to capture what you did here...both in camera skills and squirrel rapport. Well done!

frank w. degenhardt March 13, 2010

Tess- If I were one of the judges this one would be in the winners circle. I love the originallity of it, the unique and different look you gave us. The reflection in the eye of a squirrel and seeing you taking the picture in the eye is just to amazing and well done not to be anywhere but the winners circle for me. Fantastic girl.
Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy. #8452603
