If anyone knows me, they know that landscape and nature photography are my thing. I take portraits and shoot just about anything but the nature experience is like no other. That might seem like small talk to most but something as simple as any animal gives me that rush to capture the best image possible. To make a long story short, I was at Balboa Park and spotted a fairly sized squirrel perched in a tree. I only had my Fujifilm x100s with me and its a compact camera with a fixed 23mm lens equipped to it.
I carefully crept up to him until I was roughly 7 inches away.
I was stunned at the fact that he remained still because I’ve always know squirrels to be extremely skittish of people.
I enabled the “silent shutter” feature and snapped away. I was able to get 5-6 images of this beautiful animal before he decided no longer to be my muse.
Until next time..
