Squirrel Portraits?

 Wednesday, June 8, 2011

Update: Because a few people have asked me, I wanted to mention that I did take these with my 50mm 1.8 lens.  I was just able to get close because the squirrel didnt run away!

I stopped to take a picture of a squirrel the other day, and instead of running away like most squirrels do, I swear she stopped to pose for me! She ran up and down the tree, looked at me from both sides of the tree, and let me get quite close!


(Love the bokeh in this one)


And I swear she was getting ready to jump on my head when I took this one!

Lovely Photo - Wordless or Not-So-Wordless Wednesday at Aspire

And one last picture for two last challenges.  Allie's challenge this week is to post a photo of yourself and Simplicity's challenge is to post a cell phone picture.  So I thought I'd combine the two and post a cell phone picture of myself! I debated whether or not I wanted to post this! I took it while getting ready for a 1940's themed birthday party! (and its SOOC)

Squirrel portraits....genius. There's a squirrel I pass on my way into the office that I always want to photograph but he runs away from me. Now I'm on a mission!

Very cool. Love the second squirrel pic and bokeh.
I have a great recipe for squirrel stew! (just kidding) :)

The squirrel photos are awesome! I find them quite interesting.

Great self-portrait. I love 1940's fashion!

I've never seen a real squirrel in my life, like, in person. Those animals don't exist (as far as I know) here in the Philippines. I'd love to see one, though! ;)

Those squirrel shots are amazing!!

wow, these photos are great! Are you taking them with a zoom or getting that close? Unfortunately, we have no squirrels in our neighborhood every since the hawks took residence!

Incredible squirrel pictures!!

The squirrel shots are amazing- I can never get that close! What lens were you using? My longest is 100mm, and I scare them away if I get close enough for this type of shot with that!

Your squirrel pictures are awesome, i cant believe you got that close and thanks for commenting on my blog :D

Unbelievable!! What lens did you use for these?
Please don't tell me your 50mm 1.8..if so you are amazing!!

Jaymi June 10, 2011 at 8:07 PM  

I did indeed take these with my 50 mm 1.8 lens! I just happened to find a squirrel that didn't run away when I got close!
