That is a great idea and the Squirrels obviously approve. They are so much fun and I have one that lives in a knothole just adjacent to my bedroom window. He always is watching me and what I do as he peeks out of his hole .....hhaaha
Thanks for your post. It has been fun to watch them from my kitchen window. The other day they didn't hide when i walked out onto my deck. I said good morning and the one inside and one on the outside just watched me.
Mischievous little guys aren't they? Nice set!
Oh yes, they certainly are. This was a 2 story bird house, they customized it last year, making the opening larger and connecting the 2 levels. I see they are now working on the porch and the roof!
Thanks for your kind words.
This series has everything. Quality photos that are interesting, humerous and educational! Cute, too!
Thanks so much for your kind words.
A few more...I took over 150 images during several hours of activity.
Hilarious eye peeking out! Never thought of building squirrel houses.
Thanks so much. I can see the house from my kitchen, so much fun to see them.
The squirrels were very busy yesterday. This squirrel house, aka bird house, was customized by the squirrels last year. It was originally a 2 story house, but the squirrels ate thru to the second floor and made a nest. I think the 3-4 young squirrels come back to their home...yet there is often one in there, I think a mom with some new babies. The one inside would not let any of the others inside, It was fun to watch. I had my camera on a tripod in my house. Sony A7lll with a Sony 100-400 lens.
I have the MagMod Snoot only used it once. I do use some of the other MagMod diffusers and love them. I am not selling the connector. The Snoot is in excellent condition, only used once time.

I have 10 Nikon lenses and decided to take the 28-300mm for a 8-day vacation in Rome last year. I only wanted to take one lens because we were going to walk the city. Here is a shot I took at the Vatican, hand-held.
I don't understand the bad rap this lens is getting.
I completely agree with you. It def has it's place. As we all get older, it gets more and more difficult to shlep heavy cameras and heavy lenses. This is a great alternative.

I have several *better* lenses. I think this is a great walk around/travel lens when you don't want to take many lenses or heavy ones. I have a good friend, has the best Nikon cameras..D5, D4 and she uses the Nikon 28-300 when she travels. She is an amazing photographer!!
My good friend, amazing wildlife photographer and conservationist has given a TED talk on *Take a Stand for Those Who Have No Voice*
I am so proud to call him my friend...excited to be going with him to Africa!https://youtu.be/YIla0fVByWQ
I have this lens and hadn't used it in a long time. I have a Nikon D750. I went to the zoo recently, hand holding and using back button focus with VR on. I realized that the VR is activated when you slightly press the shutter button down, it is not the same with back button focus. I turned off the VR and did get better images.
If this is not correct, please let me know.
I am posting one of the images
Settings, F6.3 1/60 Iso 1250 at 180 focal length. This image was taken hand held thru the glass.
Having gone to the Optic 2019, my 3rd. This is a great event. B&H does an awesome job with great presentations, lots of vendor and it is all free!!
