Squirrel James Goes Nuts
by admin - 18:22 on 03 November 2012
A panicked phone call today from Squirrel James revealed that planning for his first workshop – tomorrow – was not as thorough as could have been expected: he'd run out of hazelnuts with which to lure his stunt squirrel in front of the camera of his first paying customer.
Local stores are bereft of hazelnuts, it appears; fortunately I had a spare stash which I handed over at no charge. Snappers must stick together.
James, who has occasionally questioned my liking for feline snappery when real wildlife cavorts nearby, recently admitted that he'd caught himself admiring one of his moggies, who'd struck a photogenic pose, and got as far as reaching for his camera before (in his opinion) coming to his senses.
I'm less snobbish so I've no worries about sharing Willow's latest portrait, taken when The Pride was out and about in the wilderness at the bottom of the garden.
Earlier, even Maia had joined in a climbing frenzy in our willow tree. Poor light meant I couldn't get more than a scrapbook snap but it was good to see all three cats sharing some quality time together.
The Willow portrait is superb!
