Although this is not exactly wildlife, these shots taken in a Swedish natural park show wild animals living in reasonably open spaces.

My personal first time seeing and photographing a Downy Woodpecker. I was in the yard waiting for hummingbirds and saw this fellow at the feeder that is usually used by finches and chickadees. I thought at first it was a chickadee.

Hope I'm not boring everyone with my photos of tree rodents! I look at trying to get certain photos as a challenge, and have fun doing it.

Here's my friendly local squirrel again, grabbing a peanut from the patio table, about an arm's length away from me. I actually took quite a few of the animal on the table, but it was kinda difficult to get a really great one. I sat the camera on the table, and often would miss the peanut pickup by a fraction of a second, resulting in a partially out of focus shot. Since I was using the rear LCD on my Canon superzoom XS10, I couldn't focus from my sitting position, so I had to set everything manually or the camera would focus on the fence in the background. And I really didn't have time to let the camera focus, as the squirrel was fairly fast grabbing the peanuts.

I did try my DSLR, but the noise of the shutter tripping resulted in blurry images due to the squirrel jumping back. So the XS10 with its silent electonic shutter worked the best:



Having fun anyway!

Thanks! Got a bunch more this afternoon!

It's actually a "she"(you can see the squirrel boobies when she stands up!), mostly think of it as "Momma Squirrel". She's been around for a few years, suspect she had a brood of three last year, as I've seen them around the bottom of the feeder several times. I assume they are siblings, as they weren't fighting; any other time there was more than one, they usually end up chasing each other around.

I'm looking at the squirrel photo and thinking "Hummm... If I cut the squirrel away from the background in Photoshop, I could do a photo of Squirrelzilla terrorizing the layout..." :-)

One of my boxes of nails in the garage became home for a new family early this spring.



The eggs hatched


They didnt really 'fly the nest' so much as just hop all around the garage and pine ridge.

A small vole, or baby mole got into Trev's(the turtle) small pond early this summer.





He foolishly went for a swim



When I went back to fish him out 30 mins later after getting distracted and forgetting he was in there all I found was a clean white spine with some grey fur attached. Thats one mole the dog wont need to dig a 3 foot hole in the middle of my lawn to get at.....
