London Zoo annual stock take. Keeper goes to great lengths to explain ZSL conservation efforts to assembled photogs. Mantis, bored, has other ideas and does an exploratory climb.

3. Deadlock at Dawn. Shot this on a freezing December morning. By the time these two finally got going, my fingers were almost too stiff to press the shutter. Should have brought that flask of mulled wine.

Some squirrels from me:

My husband and I sometimes rehabilitate and raise orphaned squirrels, that we then release back into the wild.

ColdCoffee, you might appreciate this. After Superstorm Sandy we were without electricity for a number of days. I face a common garden with trees and all of us were putting things on the windowsill to keep them cold (something I actually learned to do when I lived in London.) The squirrels discovered us and one day I saw a squirrel in a tree with a piece of pizza. Thanks for looking after the cuties.

Pizza ... I bet they loved that :)  ...   They also love bell pepper plants :(  .. had a pepper that was almost ready .... oh well ... They provide a lot of entertainment.

 

We have a nesting box where the mother (in the winter photo) have babies every spring and fall. They are so cute when they first venture off around the box.

They also love mice pies. Our back garden borders on a small nature reserve, with resident squirrel gang (kept in check by resident fox gang) They're up in the trees in summer, but tend to hang out more in the human-frequented back gardens in winter. Especially when our well-meaning neighbour feeds them his Christmas leftovers. Last December, I spotted two of them (already pretty full-figured, and not because of the winter fur) negotiating the top of a fence with a mince pie each in their mouths. Not sure if they were back for a helping of turkey and sprouts the next day.

This would be an opportune moment to say something about the state of the microstock world, but I'll resist. I wouldn't want to get anyone's goat. B)
