This guy was chasing a black squirrel down the street, then ran across my yard and clambered up onto my fence, at which point he noticed me and I pulled out my new iPhone 4 and snapped a couple of snapshots. The squirrels do that to run along the fence to the back yard, at which point they grab apples from the apple tree that sprawls across three different yards (it's in my next door neighbor's yard but sprawls into my yard and into the yard behind us) and run back home high in the pine trees across the street.

Well, involuntarily, but my apples are still feeding the furry bastards!


  1. Do you have hummingbirds? We have at least 3, & 2 feeders. They are tremendous fun to watch, as they're so territorial. I can sit on our screened-in & covered porch & watch them from just a few feet away. I've photographed them hundreds of times.

    Then I run back inside to watch TV.

  2. Yep, the hummingbirds love the fuchsia. Unfortunately I've never had a camera available to capture them when they're out there humming...
