Yes?


More photos? No, no, no...


It must be my gorgeous tail...


Oh no, there are more of those coming!

  4. Dear Sara! What a lovely Post. The nature is fantastic in each capture. Well done! I love the squirrels so much. Years ago, we have had a black in our garden. Now we have two cats and never seen any more squirrels...

  8. Autumn is indeed showing signs of creeping closer. So many gorgeous images Sara.
    Looks as though you had a great crop of tomatoes!
    My favourite has to be that cute, adorable little critter. As you know I just love seeing a little red squirrel, always reminds me of my childhood "Tufty the Squirrel"

  13. Olipa aikamoinen kokoelma toinen toistaan kauniimpia kuvia, ihania! Orava on niin söpö yllätettynä puuhistaan poseeraamassa. Suloista lauantai-iltaa sinulle

  15. Upeat nuo metsäkuvat! Varsinkin tuo, jossa auringonsäteet ovat tulleet kylään! Onkohan tuo muuten aina sama orava, joka päätyy sun kuviin? :)

    1. Kiitos, Muusa!
      Ei, meidän oravat ovat kaikki tällaisia söpöläisiä. :) Tämä kuvauspaikka on kauempana talosta ja tämä orava ja kaverinsa (juoksivat runkoa ympäri, ajaen toisiaan takaa?) ovat niin paljon tummempia kuin ne lähikuusessa vierailevat, että luulen että kyse on ihan eri oravista.

  17. All your photos show feeling, the cuteness of the little squirrel, the mysterious atmosphere of the trees with mist, the fresh flowers, all beautful :)

  18. Mikä kuvakokoelma - aivan huikaisevan ja hykerryttävän ihania kuvia. Minkä valitsisin suosikiksi - vaikeaa - tänään arpa lankeaa lupiinin lehdille kastepisaroilla koristeltuna?!

  19. Ihania elokuun kuvia. Nuo oravat ovat niin mainioita :)
    Hyvää viikonloppua!

  20. Haven't you been having fun with your camera, catching so many different moods in your images.
    The squirrel is a cutie, the roses ooze perfume, the tomatoes are begging to be eaten and your capture of the mosquitoes is brilliant.

    1. Thank you, Helen!
      The insects are water striders (Gerridae), but unfortunately I don't have any idea of which species they are.

  21. I think he is shy! Reminds me of the fox squirrel we see here in FL sometimes. Love your flower photos! You did great for the challenge! Hugs, Diane

  22. The red squirrel is darling - does he eat your tomatoes, etc.?

    And the flowers, and tomatoes, and berries.... everything is luscious! Truly you show how the world is so full of delights, it is almost too much to properly appreciate. Thank you!!

    1. Thank you, GretchenJoanna!
      Our tomatoes grow in a greenhouse. Who knows, perhaps squirrels would like them. We know these little gourmands like for example porcini. :)

  24. Upeita elokuu kuvia!
    Paljon kaunista on luonnossa ja puutarhassa.
    Tomaatit ovat tosi herkullisen näköisiä.

  25. A wonderful collection of flowers and wildlife from August Sara. Love the look on the squirrel's face as he's trying to come down from the tree - wondering what on earth you are pointing at him!

    The flowers are all very nice.
    Buena semana.
    Besos.

  35. Vau mitä kuvia! Ihana että olet ennättänyt kuvaamaan. Nuo ovat kuin pieniä postikortteja. Ja niin suloinen kuvasarja tuosta huiskuhännästä. Hassu pieni orava.
