Not all that wild, I guess. Probably eating something that I grew. Nikon D70 with Nikkor 180mm ED. He was so busy and content that I had time to go in the house and get the camera, switch lenses, and get back outside.

Nice. Those little suckers usually don't stay still for more than a microsecond. BTW, it looks to me like he's begging to see the Venus transit.

Nice shot, Steve. I can seldom get those little critters to sit still long enough the aim the camera and push the shutter button, much less go inside, get the camera, etc. The D70 is still a viable workhorse, especially when it has good glass on one end and someone with a good eye on the other.

Nice shot Steve. I haven't seen our squirrels since the big hail storm. I hope they survived.
