I have a new hobby or profession. It’s true. In addition to reading, exercising, spending time with family and friends, cooking (stop laughing Gregory!), decorating and redecorating my home, and spending time outside, I have added a new hobby.
I am a squirrel photographer.
Not many people can say that. Do you know any squirrel photographers? Seriously. Name one. I’d love to meet them.
Here’s how I stumbled upon this new hobby. I went to the gym this morning (remember my Fresh Start List? Losing 20lbs was on that list). Anyway, went to the gym and got all worked out. I had put my camera in the car before I went, with the idea that I’d go take some pictures if I could still lift my arms after being at the gym. (R.I.P.P.E.D is hard people. Google it.) After all, I have this lovely new camera and IT needed to get a workout.
So off to the Promenade I went. The Promenade is a 1/2 mile boardwalk along the Chesapeake Bay. I figured I would walk the Promenade and take some pictures and just chill. It was pretty sunny out and in the mid/upper 40’s (which turned out to be a little chilly, since I had gotten all sweaty working out). I had in my mind that I would finally have a camera with me when I spotted a blue heron. Almost every time I run on the boardwalk, I see a blue heron.
Did I see a blue heron today? Of course not. But I did see LOTS of birds, ducks, and geese. But I gotta tell you, I really like squirrels. They’re obviously cute. They’re also curious. And they look like furry little acrobats on telephone lines and trees. And who doesn’t love a squirrel getting a nut? C.U.T.E.
Here’s a few pictures I took.
Yes, I agree I needed to get closer to the squirrels in these pics. I said I liked taking their pictures. I don't want to cuddle with them.
As I was taking pictures, I stumbled across a guy taking pictures of birds. I’m pretty sure his camera was 6 times the size of mine. I definitely felt inferior with my little camera. I hope his pictures suck. (Kidding!)
I did take a bunch of other pics, which I’ll spare you from. However, I liked this little seagull so I thought I’d share.
Make it a great day. Friday Funnies tomorrow!!
