The Squirrel

The Squirrel

Whisky, frisky,
hippity hop;
up he goes
to the tree top!

Whirly, twirly,
round and round,
down he scampers
To the ground.

Furly, curly
what a tail!
tall as a feather
broad as a sail!

Where's his supper?
in the shell,
snappity, crackity,
Out it fell.


My first photo taken with a Christmas
  gift from my sweet hubby. 
A Sony Cyber shot camera.
This picture was shot thru a window
and from quite a distance.
It seems to take great pictures, now all I have to do
is learn how to use it. I've been so busy since 
Christmas that I haven't had  time to 
read the instruction booklet.

One more pic of my nutty friend .

Thank you for stopping by~Clara

Oh I just love Sammy Squirrels (we have many in our yard and I always put out peanuts for them). Your Sammy is just adorable and your camera takes beautiful photos! Have fun experimenting with it, and Happy New Year!

Well done Clara, all are great photos. Good luck with your instruction booklet, when you get the time of course, maybe over a cup of tea?

Clara, that's the same camera I use! You will LOVE it, if you don't already!

GREAT shot of your squirrel - he'd never let you get that close, would he?

Cute poem, made me smile big time.

I am looking thru all the blogs in the Grow Your Blog party and your title was intriguing and I also love roses and all of nature. It seems like squirrels are very popular photo subjects. A new follower.

Hi Clara, I love the poem, but my squirrels get their dinners not from shells but from my bird feeders! I think you will love your new camera. I still haven't read my instructions either, but I find just using it helps! Linda
