Thanks Harriet, Lou and Scott for the comments on the photos.

Les, California has a wide variety of habitats and many photogenic locales and creatures. It is a photographers paradise. You really should make an effort to visit - but the place is so big, and there is so much to see, you really have to research and plan your trip carefully so as to make the most effective use of your time. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Never dissapointed when reading your posts and looking at the pictures, Pen. Maybe we have the explanation for the activity level in this forum in this thread, there's so much more than quarrelling about technical futilities here. Fine pictures and a lot of OT learning.
How many different squirrels do you have in America? Here I know of only one.

Kjell, according to current taxonomy, we have 10 species of tree squirrels (including 2 Flying Squirrels), and 20 species of ground squirrels, mostly in the arid West (and not including the 16 related chipmunks and 4 Prairie Dogs). This variety is due to the greatly varied topography of the continent, and the variety of habitats therein.

Wonderful tree shot, and chipmunks are just so cute, the seagull came out very sharp.
