Been foolin´ arounnd all day with PhotoShop and try to create faked HDR-copies. Poke around for yourself and see if you think that I created something nice. You can surely spot the difference atleast.

true. even dull subjects can turn into interesting ones - which proves there is no dull subject at all.  
although i can see how all these post-processing options today are something that can drive old school purists mad. ;)

here is a photo that really touched me:



my daughter decided to offer flowers instead of food -- one little monkey loved the game very much... he'd eagerly reach for each chamomile blossom, chewing on the first and then sniffing the rest.

as i left the zoo, i remembered that, sometimes they cage up the wrong primates.


say no more.

yes it is. there are so many great pics all over flickr these days that one cannot keep track of all of them, but yet this one was especially memorable to me.

that's great. did you take that yourself?

i went to see my little friends today, after a couple of months break. there were three new little guys - completely crazy little furballs.  :)
just really hard to take pics of them - they were like little orange-brown balls of mercury. they might stop to pose for you but only for a 0,00000001 of a second - so be quick!
one of them kept speeding towards me every now and then and jumping up and grabbing my knee - and then it was speeding back where it came from as fast as it could. repeat and fade. :)

They actually come up and grab you?

The squirrels that live around here are scared to death of people!

yeah they did.  :-D and i didn't even have any food/any treats to give them, and yet they kept coming to see me all the time. first they came sniffing my foots and then they started this "jump and grab the knee!" thing that went on and on, practically until i left. :D
this is the only pic i got from it though:
 


because it's really difficult to take pics of them. even when you keep your camera on widest angle possible they are just SO fast that they were long gone when you're still trying to find the focus :P
it was just really sweet somehow, to feel their little paws on one's knee/climbing one's  leg :) (even though they had pretty sharp nails!).

but sure, these were full-blood city squirrels. the wild ones here do exactly what you described, run and hide when they see humans.
these were really small squirrels, obviously this year's pups.  i just hope they are a bit more cautious when they run into a dog or a fox.

Yep, the picture is taken last summer in my hometown, Söderköping.

I really like your squirrel!

while we were in the U.S. a tiny squirrel stole some of our food while we were standing right net to the table, but it didn't come that close  :-D
Say hello on a day like today

Even the city ones here run away from humans.  Heck, just look at them and they're gone.
