What I Shot {living outside the stacks}

It’s been a long time since I’ve just shared a random photo, so I thought I’d dig through my archives and see what I could find…

And this guy appeared.

My daughter says I have the most random encounters with the weirdest animals – especially squirrels {remember the porch licker?}.

Nikon D7500 | 200mm | f/5.6 | 1/200 | ISO 400

I took this when we first moved to Louisiana. I was outside walking Squeekerz when I saw this guy just hanging out in the tree. He looked like he wanted his photo taken, so I decided to oblige. Isn’t he a charmer?

Edited with Lightroom and PicMonkey

I took this photo with my Nikkor 55-200mm lens, which I hardly ever use. And, honest to goodness, I can’t believe how sharp the details are on this guy. He was literally up in a tree! But we look like we’re almost face to face. As you can tell, I didn’t do much in the way of editing. I mostly just cropped, adjusted the exposure and contrast a bit, and then added my watermark. I try, for the most part, to get my shot in the camera, but sometimes that really isn’t possible.

If you’re on Instagram, give me a yell and let me know you’re there.

Happy Snapping,
