Armed And Crazy

1/200 sec. f/8 ISO 800

I'm pretty sure this tree rat was thinking about cuttin' me! 

Linking to Saturday's Critters 

Today's Tip:
To check for a dirty camera sensor, take a photo of something white (wall, sheet of paper, or even the bright sky) using a small aperture (large f stop number). Any significant dust or dirt should show up in the photo. Be sure to look at it on a computer monitor and not just the LCD screen.

Margaret Adamson said...

Hi Brian I suppose he missed you!! great shot adn HAPPY NEW YWAR. Love the phtograph on your previous post. Stunning.

Nita Davis said...

What a great fun shot! He does look mighty angry and his little fists all ready to fight. Although, I can't help but wonder why he is pointing? Did you forget to fill the feeder? Maybe that is why he is pointing and angry. :D
Like your photo tip, it reminded me it's time to give the camera a little TLC.
Have a fantastic 2014!

Oh my gosh he looks "miffed" at you for sure. Funny but the squirrels here generally seem quite friendly. Loving that bird house too.
