One week off, with friends and kids in Schwarzwald. This did not sound like I would have time nor the chance to shoot wild animals at all but these images tell a different story. Fortunately this squirrel was as curious as our kids are and so I had some time to frame the shot. It was used to people and came quite close. The next day, we returned in order to meet it again and we were not disappointed. Besides, squirrels don’t like eating apple that much. 😉 One week off, with friends and kids in Schwarzwald. This did not…

Little Mr. Nuts is once again out to get his belly full of tasty buds. I am really lucky that this little mischief ist still around, although I bet it is already the third generation…. all documented on this blog

It may be that I repeat myself, picturing all the same animals over and over again…. but winter still keeps us under his control and the sun is on a flying visit. I was just glad to see this old fellow again, jumping over my roof and balcony and finally resting on a nearby tree, enjoying the sun. It looks like it sends a little prayer to the one above that he shall send some warm sunbeams down. Guess we are all fed up with the cold – at least my batteries are empty and need a recharge soon.

Cold, dark, weather outside, few people in the streets and no sunshine at all. Not the best conditions for a walk, but I just got my cam cleaned at the Weitsichtfestival in Frankfurt. So Ingo and me went to the nearby cemetary and found… well… Mr. Nuts.. ones more. Despite beeing quite bussy getting his inventory full of nuts he seems to be everywhere. Still a welcome model in front of my cam.

After the great storm last month, many trees around our house vanished. As if this is not enough for our fellow garden inhabitants, we added a hughe winter garden to our home with lots of noise, people, dirt and action going on. So I was very happy to meet my old chap from last year again. Here’s Mr. Nutz… lately he’s been very bussy scaping of branches from a big tree in our garden. Let’s hope there will be some new blood soon.

My doc told me to stay at home, drink tea, and put my body to rest, so I decided to put myself on a confotable airmat in the garden – off course not without my camera. Up in the maple branches above me, a huge squirrel was satisfying its hunger and finally took a litlle nap afterwards. Sad that the red ones living here in germany will be driven out by its grey american relatives. Looks like america is dominant in more ways than just politics.

I always wondered if they really exist! Beeing an avid Zak McKracken player, back in the eighties, Lucas Film Games (Lucas Arts) introduced the two headed squirrel… couldn’t find it throughout Hyde Park, so his single-headed buddy came in handy.
