Miscellaneous Wildlife
« on: June 09, 2018, 04:34:00 PM »
Not too much to snap around here at the moment, so I decided to do an informal portrait of one of the neighbours: Richardson's ground squirrel (known around here erroneously as a gopher) playing peek-a-boo with me this morning.

Honestly I don't think there is "miscellaneous life" but I understand what dpc mean and I accept it...
The last two shots are two consecutive in interval of 1/30s  :).

I ran into a beaver in the middle of a city park!  Not shy at all...

Very special picture, this one, ISv! The body stands out nicely against the greyish bark and with that menacing look... ;)
Although the jumping frog in the previous series has its humourous charm as well  ;D

Charming fella ;) Was there a pond in the park - he's so wet so he can't have been out of the water that long...

First - thanks to everyone!
Wiebe you probably know but just in case: these frogs are poisonous in their original habitats. Here it looks like they are not - they miss the proper assortment of insects to accumulate the toxins. Very small (2-3 cm) and shy, hard to spot.

clbayley - it looks like that one likes your camera ;)
