My husband came in and said there’s a squirrel in the garage. I grabbed the camera and ran out. Yes, he still was there. He was on the floor licking something . After a while he went into the garden. He sat there looking, for I don’t know what. Then he skipped away. Cute one.

A Squirrel

 A squirrel under the garage roof where two years ago was baby sparrows. For the past two weeks I have seen birds fly in and out of there again. Either the squirrel  is building a nest of his own there or he ate the eggs if there were any.

Sparrow and Squirrel

Spring and beginning of summer really are busy times for all the animals. The cute sparrow and squirrel really are working hard. There are several sparrows having their nests under the garage roof. We can hear there already are “babies”. When the parents bring them food they are loudly screaming for it. The squirrel I saw further down the road. He was actually waiting for a car to pass which made me nervously gasp for my breath. I was thinking don’t cross yet, don’t cross yet. Good he didn’t until the car passed. Also gave me the time to shoot the picture. I tried to take an other when he run over to the other side but he was too fast for me 🙂 Amazing how much they are able to carry in the beak and mouth.Sparrow Squirrel

A Two Hour Walk

Cat img_8260cc
Such a wonderful day for a long walk. Sunshine, no wind, temperature plus one degree Celsius. Even my favorite cat in the neighborhood was out for a walk. I do see him from time to time. I fell for him at first sight. He is absolutely adorable and so beautiful. He reminds me of a picture of a Turkish Angora in the Royal Canin Calendar of 2006-2007.  I still have the calendar because of the picture. Once or twice I have tried to take photos of him but every time he saw me lift my camera he turned his back to me and slowly walked away. Yesterday he was sitting on the road watching me and Canelo coming closer and closer. He didn’t move so I stopped and told him to please sit still and let me have a picture taken. Oh how happy I was as he didn’t move. After the first picture I said let me take one more. But nope. I could feel him saying, you said one. He got up and with a lot of dignity he walked away. I can’t remember when was the first time a saw him but it is already several years ago. I wish him well and hope I will see him around here for many more years to come.Pitkäjärvi lake IMG_8262C

Oh the lake looked so nice. Click ! I know, I already do have plenty of pictures from the very same spot that look exactly the same but I every time find the view beautiful and can’t resist taking new pictures.
Mushrooms IMG_8272C
Mushrooms ! ? I had to look twice. Yes. I have no idea what kind of mushrooms they are. There are so many in the Mushroom book that look the same so I just don’t try to find out what these are. Neither do they look delicious. But still, we are in the middle of November and there are mushrooms !
Squirrel img_8277c
I could hear something in a tree. I stopped and so did the squirrel. I think he thought he was invisible for as long as he didn’t move. Again, slowly, slowly the camera out from my pocket and even more slowly lifting it. Click. Yes, I got a picture. Not a very good one but a picture. I didn’t shoot an other as I didn’t want to keep him in the freeze position for no longer. I put the camera away and he hopped away.

It was a lovely, enjoyable walk on a lovely November day.
