Squirrel on an Empty Fountain in my Backyard. I am OK with the squirrels as long as they stay out of my attic. With the new roof I don’t think there is a way for them to get in (fingers crossed). Image taken with a Fuji X-T1 camera and 100-400 mm OIS lens (ISO 200, 400 mm, f/8, 1/80 sec).
Backyard spring nature in New Jersey. The rabbit in my wildflower garden started nibbling on the Italian (Crimson) clover. The Italian clover was part of the wildflower mixture. I also saw a groundhog brushing its teeth with some rebar, a robin in the rain, and a squirrel with a nut. All of the wildlife images were taken from within the house. Later on I went out with a macro lens to capture some flower pictures.
Walkabout in my backyard on a late winter sunny day with a Nikon 1 V1 camera and some big Nikon lenses using a FT1 adapter. A bright yellow daffodil bloom, and a squirrel with an acorn that he just dug up.
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.
Backyard Autumn Nature in New Jersey: Squirrel eating wild grapes in a pine tree
This squirrel thought it was hiding while eating the wild grapes. The wild grape vines were starting to take over the line of pine trees on on the west side of my house. I tried removing them every year, but they are intermixed with poison ivy vines.
My sixth day of Retirement. I took a series of images of rabbits and this squirrel while sitting in my car in my driveway while listening to “A Good American” on SiriusXM. Now that I am not commuting 3+ hours a day I can photograph the local wildlife while listening to books on satellite radio. I was also waiting for UPS to make a delivery of a Nikon D4. The delivery was supposed to arrive last Friday. UPS claimed that I wasn’t present to sign for the package on Friday — but I had been sitting in the driveway listening to “Three Junes” on SiriusXM at the same time (5:03 PM) that UPS indicated that I was not present. I guess that the driver wanted to go home early on a summer Friday. The package did arrive tonight at ~6:30 PM. Unlike the first wave of D4 deliveries, this one did not include a XQD memory card and XQD card reader. Hope to have some images from the D4 to share tomorrow.
