The other day, I decided to finally try out the long lens I’d gotten in that great camera score.
Unlike the townhouse, most of the squirrels here are still very wary of me. So they seemed like the perfect subject for this stealthy paparazzo and her fancy new lens.
I was not disappointed…
This beautiful grey girl was very excited about the fresh batch of peanuts I’d put in the feeder.
I spent a good half an hour or so snapping pictures of her as she ran back and forth grabbing one peanut at at time…
The lens is even better than I hoped.
I can get decent shots from almost clear across the yard.
Now… to try it on all the wonderful birds that come to the yard!

Beautiful images! You are a natural photographer, a good eye for composition. Looking forward to seeing the bird images. I dabble in photography too. And I LOVE cats! I have a ginger boy (7) called Possum.
I think squirrely wants to be the star!
What a ton of fun! The photos turned out beautifully!
Lovely! Maybe there is are lenses that I can add to my iPhone, for macro and long-distance.
Great shots Val and my favorite (of course) is the last – it is hysterical!!
Amazing! What handsome fellas they are. It’s going to be fun seeing what you can do with your new equipment. It makes me long to have a real camera in my hands again.
My favorites are the second one, that tail fluff, oh my gosh, and the last one where she looks ready to fight! “Keep those hands off of my nuts!” Great photos Val!
Blessings and hugs,
What a sassy squirrel! The new lens captured some great shots.
What great shots! Your new equipment and your photographer’s eye are a winning combination.
Great photos! We have two squirrels that will take a peanut from my fingers; one has some missing fur in its tail so they are easy to tell apart.
