I was wondering why it appears to have horns. Apparently *European* red squirrels are not the same as North American red squirrels, and can have these ear tufts.
Not the same species...

This morning I went to a local national wildlife refuge and stumbled across a very photogenic baby turtle. Normally, I go for birds or insects, but when nature provides you with a beautiful subject one cannot resist spending some time taking photos. I was on my stomach for a good 20-30 minutes photographing the baby turtle before it wandered off.

...went out the front door to check the mail and noticed a shadowy-type figure perched on an interior tree branch about twelve feet off the ground. Came back with mail in hand and the figure was still there--probably not a bird, I thought.

So I went back a minute later, and 5DMkIII + 100-400 II equals this:

...never witnessed a chipmunk in that tree before.

A quick websearch suggests that it might have been hunting for cicadas!

Day after the hawk paid a visit, a different subject posed for me yesterday. (I hope this little guy keeps an eye to the sky!!) A few months ago I posted a photo of a different rabbit - this is one of that rabbits offspring, and seems to have taken up residence here. All taken with R5 + 100-500, the 2nd & 3rd with the 2x TC added.
