I love this pic, it shows the determination of squirrels.  I recently moved our squirrel flipping bird feeder back to its summer spot hanging off a tree.  I did not apparently move it far enough out on the branch.  This squirrel wisely avoided the bottom rail that will flip him off.  One paw is keeping him on the tree


For some reason the weight of only 2 paws was not enough to set the flipper flipping.  These pics were taken with the telephoto and I have to learn how to get the blur out of them.  Next time.  I am sure the squirrels will give me interesting photo ops all summer long


Using the Macro and Black and White feature on IPhoto I think this pic came out nicely showing the frost and light snow we had this morning.  All the trees were coated in crystals this morning



I forgot to switch this to a Black and White but it still turned out nicely showing how pretty the whitepines are this morning on the hill


Looking off the hill with the frost and light snow.  It was a cold damp cold and I was happy to go inside and find the woodstove.  Grandpa Gibson has come up for some icefishing and I told him to make sure he grabs his heater before heading to his shack



I left the color on this one showing the new way Grandpa Gibson and Troy are trying to lure the squirrels to jump on our Squirrel Flipper bird feeder.  So far no takers…
