Portrait of a Squirrel
Squirrel peering at me, his favorite nut supplier
A menacing illusion of an attack bird....but just a lucky capture in low light
Woody, digesting Suet
This woodpecker was eating our wooden roof trim at 5:30AM daily until I lured him to a suet basket.
Blue jays in an alternative universe
Using a slow shutter speed, the birds appear to be in a watery universe, like fish in an aquarium.
All four images are part of a larger project which was highly gratifying....I am not a nature photographer by profession but after months of enjoying the company of birds, squirrels, deer and fox -- all in my back yard -- I almost prefer them to hand-shaking Washington politicians and celebrities. Maybe time to get back to the real world??
