    Post your best Squirrel shots



    Squirrels are pretty common stupid things that I tend to photograph when I'm bored. Anyone else?

    We call them possums over here in Australia. This took place a few yards from my back yard. It is a picture of a python magican. He is making a possum disappear. I had to re-locate the snake towards the end of this performance as I have little dogs about the same size as the possum. I rang a vet before I shifted the snake as I was concerned about the health and safety of the snake and for myself. The vet said it is very hard to get bitten by a snake with a possum hanging out of its mouth. Nature ya gotta love it.

    The possum body was about fifteen inches long. The blanket is what I rolled the snake on to to move him to another part of the yard.

    I'll agree....when I'm bored and need a prop....the squirrel is a willing subject.

    Nice red squirrel John....but what did you do in PP to make the 3200 ISO look this good? I rarely go above 1200 w/my 7D......

    Plenty of room down here Paul, you'll be very welcome.


    This shot was at the beginning of the vanishing act, you can just see his beady little snake eye. The snake is about three inches in diameter and he was wrapped around to crush the possum, to swallow it a bit easier. His jaw is dislocated at this stage.

    Hey, Steve - Out of curiousity, what do you call what we consider "possum" then in your neck of the woods???

    Squirrels ...and chipmunks are always a great standby when there is nothing else available to shoot ...
