What now?

“Got your photo? Good. Can I go back to my dinner now please?”

It’s been a looooong day – I was still doing admin at 9pm – and I only picked up the camera once, late this afternoon when R told me that the light was going and it was threatening rain. Luckily I had the right lens on to get a few shots of one of the resident squirrels.

Incidentally, I’m always intrigued by the number of people who give their squirrels names – if you are one of those people, please would you tell me how you distinguish one from another? We have five or six living at the bottom of the garden at the moment, and aside from some being slightly bigger than others they all look identical to me.

I hovered for ages over the choice of shot for this blip – this got the nod for being sharper, but the other one I really liked is here. The alternative had a song lyric niggling away at the edge of my brain as I was editing it, which when I finally nailed it down turned out to be this. Sorry, but it can’t be helped – I was a teenager in the 1970s, and there’s absolutely nothing I can do about that!
