This week, on Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #190, host Patti challenges us to look closer and I mean real close.
A few weeks ago, when I visited the city park, the moment I got out of the car, I saw a squirrel running down a tree. Immediately, I stood in place, didn’t dare to move a muscle as I witnessed the life of a squirrel.
As quiet as I could, I grabbed my camera, zoomed to 70 mm (maximum zoom on my 17-70 mm lens), I began snapping away while one step at a time, I made my way closer until I stepped on a twig. The squirrel looked up as I snapped the picture.
After a week of below freezing temperature and snow storms, the sun finally came out to shine yesterday and it looked like Mother Nature thought we’ve suffered enough of this winter. The temperature was in the mid-50’s-Fahrenheit, which called for shedding my jacket and turn on the AC in my car as I did my errands.
A few of the crocuses which were planted last fall finally bloomed. This is my first year growing crocuses and I really like the pattern on its petals. I tried to get a closer look with my camera but it didn’t let me and with daylight fading fast and temperature dropping once again, signaling night, I thought I’d better try this again another day.
