September 8

I was trying to take a photo of a eucalyptus grove this afternoon, but it just wasn't turning out.  In the meantime, a dozen squirrels had gather around this man,"The Squirrel Whisperer," who was sitting in the grove and feeding them and they are very tame.  I ended up liking this super close-up.  They actually get much closer to the camera than this, but it's impossible to focus on them.  Focusing was my issue again anyway...I have this tendency to focus and then try to frame the shot, and when I'm photographing animals like this I need to just point and shoot a lot more.  I like the eye on this squirrel, and also the crumbs on his chin.
