    This little dude was chilling on the branch outside my kitchen window yesterday evening.

    Nice. I love those little guys but they don't normally stay still for long enough to photograph.
    Maybe for once, someone will call me "Sir" without adding, "You're making a scene."

I've tried protecting the feeders with plastic bottles over the top to make it hard for them to cling but they even find ways around that - leaping from odd angles, chewing around the bottles to shorten them. Bastards.


    I remember squirrel obstacle courses on nature programmes as a kid.



    Ninja squirrel!

    Aaahhhh that's so cute! I want to set up an obstacle course for squirrels now.

    That vending machine squirrel will be too fat to fit in the machine soon!

    Haha! Love the squirrel pics and that video. Here are a couple that I took of some squirrels who were very rambunctious, and kind of playing chicken with me on a college campus this past fall. They were very curious about me and were constantly running around me so it was hard to get decent pics of them. But they were hilarious.



    Suck it, Shawn.

    I love squirrels! We raised a few orphaned squirrels when I was growing up and they were a lot of fun. We'd give them cotton balls to play with and they'd spend hours throwing them around and rolling around with them. Once they were old enough we'd release them into the yard. One of them got really attached to us and would jump out of the trees to greet my Dad when she saw him. That was a bit unsafe, as she once landed on his face, so we relocated her to a pecan orchard.

    There's a cute home video of me with two of the babies crawling in and out of my shirt, playing with each other. *cuteness overload*

    Here's one not so beautiful photo of this "small" snail:




    A few years back I was in this place, it was a rainy day, I felt bored, however I got outside and came across a snail, then another one... As I went further, there was an army of these giant snails. I decided to collect them, and my cousin joined me. We collected more than 80 snails, and placed them on a board. It was a real fun! After I took some photos and videos of them, we let them go. Hours went by and they were, more or less, at the same place. I think, for them, it takes an hour to move like one centimeter.
    Oh, you can't imagine the mess they left! Oh well...

    I think snails are pretty cute.

    ^ Yes, they are, but when you see them in that size and leaving behind a mucus (I'm not sure this is a right word in English?), all you can think of is Oh, not so cute.

    No way, I LOVE snails! I feel so sorry for them when they try to cross a concrete walkway and all the moisture gets sucked out of them. I always move them if I find them in time. Poor things.

    Here's a snail I found in the rainforest in Puerto Rico:


    Lovely sunset at the local lake:

    All snails are Brian, therefore cool. Seriously, I think snails are kind of beautiful. Their shells are certainly often gorgeous.

    Beautiful landscape (where is this?)
    It's just outside Keswick, Cumbria, in England. I was doing a circular walk across farmland to a very famous stone circle up there. Lovely drizzly day!
