Red Squirrels

Red Squirrels are very shy and very FAST.  These guys can travel at the speed of sound, I swear.  But this guy was chomping on his lunch, and sat still for a few seconds for me.  If you look closely, you can see pieces of his walnut flying through the air.  He was on a mission.
 This guy also posed for me.
I guess lunch time might be a good time to capture these tiny critters.  They make a rattlesnake-type sound so be on the lookout for them on your next walk in the park.

I'm in Love.

Yes, it's true.  I'm in love.  With Deer.  And when you can get close enough to them to get a half way decent picture, it thrills me to the bone.  Today was one of those days.  The males were chasing the females, and it was fun to watch.  But then, they would grow tired, and stop long enough to have their portrait taken, then off they went again.
 This guy was very determined. 
 And this guy seemed to have something on his mind for sure.  I decided not to stick around.  The noises they make can be a little threatening.

And then there was this guy peeking through the tall grass. 
Yes, Deer.  They are absolutely awesome creatures.
