Five-Years Ago (09-March-2012) — New Jersey

Pictures of a squirrel in my backyard after finding a nut. The images were taken with a Nikon 1 V1 camera, FT1 adapter, and 70-200 mm f/2.8 VRII lens. I prefer the squirrels outside rather than doing damage in my attic. I’ve put up flashing lights and ultrasonic noisemakers in my attic to try keeping them outside.
