A coupla fun shots.

Due to a sore heel, I'm staying off my feet as much as possible for awhile. Anyway, I started getting this guy to take peanuts from me last year, so I finally decided to try to get a picture of it happening. Due to the weight and wait, I thought it would be easier to use my Panasonic. I kept the door open with my knee, knelt down, and was focused on the peanut by the time he decided to take the peanut. I had attempted this last week, but it was dark out and the picture didn't turn out worth a darn. After that, he was a little camera shy, due to the shutter click. However, when I let the dog out, here he came up the steps. He got to the top, took one look at the dog, and away he went. A few minutes later, with the dog inside, there he was at the bottom of the steps. He wasted no time coming back up for his treat.

That's cool. I always get nervous when the squirrels come after my nuts!

I was a bit concerned the first time. But surprisingly, he is very slow and deliberate, when he takes it from me. He doesn't run up and snatch it. He slowly moves in and gently pulls it from between my fingers.

    • Lol at 3 I think I got a little time
    •   Please try and get her to know the difference as soon as you can!  Just saying.
    • You cant be serious, can you?  I think you got that backwards Dave, much like waiting until you become diagnosed  before you open your eyes to bad habits.   Hindsight is always 20/20, guys like you are the reason i take the measures i do now. Im not ripping on you for not knowing because its easy to become unaware of the damage your actually doing to yourself. Learning from others mishaps sticks a lot more than reading about some new trend.
    • Unfortunate your taxidermist could not do all three in a  nice natural  of setting because my guess is it was a female and her two kits. That's just judging from the pictures of course. Would have been a nice family photo, so to speak.
    • Thanks Big Dave. I looked through this stuff and really think a turkey hunt would be something different.  That Mexican bird would be a cool deal.   We will see, I have time!
    •       Because $$$$$$$$$....   You know, free speech and all that..
    • Why not get rid of the cozy relationship that the hospitals,insurance companies, medical device and drug suppliers have and open the market up to competition.    Prime example. You have sleep apnea. Go to the clinic and get a mandated sleep study in their room which costs about $4k for the night.  In an open market private companies could do this for a fraction of the price.   Once you test positive they give you a prescription to buy a machine at their facility and the cost ranges from $1600 to $3600.   You can buy the exact product online for $400-700. But the clinics and doctors don't want you buying there for obvious reasons.    Just one example buy this is what I would like to see changed.  
    • The Rum River is fun anywhere from St. Francis to Anoka. Probably fun north of there to, but I've never done it. It's been quite a few years since I've been on it, but was all no-wake and assume it still is so you don't have to worry much about big boats. 
    •     Why not pass a law that says politicians can't rake in more than 10 percent of the campaign costs of their highest third party competitor?....       wording
