Be Very Very Quiet ... I'm shooting Squirrells - with a camera, of course!

Today the sun is shining and seemed to be calling us outdoors .... well, at least Matt & I, that is! So, after a lovely slow morning start we decided to take Storm out for a walk in the woods at Queens Enclosure (right near our home). We grabbed the cameras and headed out the door, leaving the boys to do their own thing for a while.

The woods were a magical colour today: most of the deciduous trees have lost their leaves now as Winter approaches, but the woods are filled with evergreens with moss crawling up their trunks and vines climbing all over them. The light slowly filtered in from above the canopy, making the most amazing light for photographs. It was bitterly cold as we wandered around, but this didn't stop us - just made us feel refreshed!

We went slowly and softly as we looked for some Squirrells to shoot ... digitally speaking! We were not to be dissapointed as many of these furry little critters were playing about and gathering nuts while there were still some to be gathered. They tended to move very quickly once they spotted us but we still managed to snap some... Storm even considered chasing one until her hips told her it just wasn't going to happen...whew!

All in all... some happy shooting of the best kind!
