Squirrels

I moved all of my cameras on New Years Day to new locations. One thing I was hoping to accomplish was to get away from the squirrels. At one set I was getting as many as 6 squirrels on camera at the same time. But as you can see below the squirrels still found me. Just not as many of them. I thought they were pretty good pics so I decided to go ahead and post them. Maybe they're like Dawson and just want a little face time on the blog :).

As I mentioned I move all of my cameras. One new location was at an open gate coming from a power line and going into a rye field. My farmer buddy said he had been seeing two shooter bucks using the open gate to enter the field the week earlier. So I set up with high hopes. When I checked the camera Saturday I found that some how I don't get the memory card seated properly and had no pictures.....&@%#$#@!!. To top it off my buddy hasn't seen the bucks in the field any more since I got the camera working correctly. Just my run of luck lately. Oh well, enjoy the squirrels :).

I have to admit....I love squirrels!

I imagine they are mocking you, giggling and high-fiving each other, like in the Geico commercial. ;)

I love 'em too! They're so darn cute!!! You can post all the squirrel pix you want (or get!)

Trey - I don't think I've ever seen a skinny squirrel on the farm.

Farmchick - I'll have to admit to that I like squirrels except when they're running around in the leaves while I'm trying to deer hunt.

Nancy - You know I've thought about that and you're probably right :).

Dang the luck on those bucks, but that's just like big bucks. They vanish when you get your "eyes" on them.

I'm not much for squirrel but I do like the background in the shots. It'll be a beaut with a deer in the photo!

I agree with everybody else... those squirrels make my day! They're adorable. Encore!

Squirrels are the rodents with personality;)

Why is it all the animals seem to know your camera is there. Posing is superb:)

The squirrels sure did find you! They're big!

I seem to have the same problem trying to get away from the squirrels - when I'm deer hunting. It doesn't help that they're incessant chatter boxes if they spot you. Of course, if I'm squirrel hunting, they're no where to be found.

I wish you luck in hiding the cameras from them, Joe!
