He slid past my chair about 5 - 6 feet away, pretty close, too close for me .

More great shots, I never really checked this thread before, even though I sit for hours and watch nature go by in my back yard, love it, I'll start taking my camera out with me for morning coffee and try to snap some of it. Plenty of humming birds, cardinals and dragonflies, the bluejays seem to have disapeared since the tornado's took down a bunch of trees, or maybe its the wrong time of year? I dont know. There is also a Racoon, fox, turkey, tortoise, rabits and a few others that used to be regular visitors, we'll see.

Saucy!.... Man that's Canadian..... now I am homesick, my mom and grandma said that so much to me when I was growing up, I never hear that in the southern U.S.

Amazing pictures guys, keep them coming.

Not sure if a large gray squirrel would be considered "wild life", but it shows up in my backyard and it's not mine, so it must be wild!

Was sitting under our summer gazebo in the yard this morning after having taken some photos of my wife's extensive flower garden. Always look great after a rain! We have a bird feeder hanging on our clothes line a bit past the gazebo, and the birds seem to spill as much sunflower seeds from it as they eat. As a result, the spilled seeds attract area squirrels.

I noticed the squirrel feasting on the seeds and he didn't appear to see me, as there was a chair between us. I could see through the chair back, but couldn't take photos through it. Luckily I was using my Canon Powershot S5, which has a fixed 12X lens and a swingout rear LCD viewfinder. I was able to swing out the finder and hold the camera at arm's length to take a bunch of photos of the rodent. He was less than 10 feet away from me at the time. I couldn't have taken the photos with my DSLR because of the focusing problem, and the shutter noise would probably have sacred the squirrel away; the S5 uses a silent electronic shutter.

My good buddy:
