Bluenose - Thanks for the kind words, and glad you enjoy the words as well as the pictures!

GW - Thanks!

Rodney - They sure are cute little rodents, aren't they! Glad I'm not a walnut though...

Cameannee - we have LOTS of milkweeds - several species - all have great & complicated flowers, and all full of seeds right now. The flowers are butterfly magnets in the summertime.

Patty - Thanks - he sure was patient depite the giant lens aimed at his face!

Lou - thanks for the kind words - glad you enjoyed these.

John - You're right, those black walnuts are very hard - we usually use a big rock or a small sledge hammer. But the squirrels don't break them open, they just slowly gnaw into them. Their incisors are very hard, and they keep on growing to replace the worn-down ends.
One of my favorite autumn sounds in the woods is the sound of squirrels gnawing walnuts (have not figured out how to photograph sounds!!)

Well, there's always the video option on the K-7, that has sound capability...

You don't really need sound or video, your still pictures do a great job of explaining themselves just as they are.
