MY CRITTERS FOR THE WEEK



'Click me fast, if you must.'



The sprightly squirrel (though she is my friend) was evading me like anything in the park nearby our house. I tried to capture her capering on the trees, but she was too nimble for the click. Finally I got her  in this posture on the walking path last week.



'Our ramp walk'


Yesterday I ventured into a new area for the express purpose of spotting some birds. I found this pair of peace loving doves having a walk in the afternoon sun.

'Be off, I don't like intrusions.'



This picture of the duck is drawn from my archives. Last month, I walked into a community half a Km. away from our house. I saw her behind a net fence near a  large puddle outside the boundary wall of a private house. Clearly she was  the pet of the house owners. She quacked in disapproval when  I went near the fence for this click.



Friends welcome here as always!

  3. Lovely photos of the quick getaways. You'd think by now that the birds, squirrels, and other wildlife would have it imprinted in their dna that when they see a camera, the stop, pose, and smile. :-)

  8. If you hold the camera close to your body, then it would be more stable and the images would be sharper. It is also a good idea to rest the left hand below the camera, so that when you click the camera doesn't get pushed down.

    1. Thanks a lot Sabyasachi for the tips. I know when i click, the camera does get pushed down and the picture becomes blurred.I'm seized of the matter myself.
