Sparky the squirrel seemed full of the joys of . . . Autumn!
I captured the little critter scampering above in the canopies of these large trees, while I sat in the shade beneath enjoying my coffee. It was nice of him to provide the entertainment!
He even sunbathed awhile, stretched out on a branch, as comfy to him as any sofa to us.
But living life in the fast lane, he didn’t stay for long.
I caught him just about to leap across a wide open space to the next tree. I love how he gets his eye in and bunches up, coiled like a spring, before bounding into mid-air, propelled by his strong back legs.
He then confidently scampered at speed through an arboreal pathway only he could see. I snapped this last action shot as he leapt away; on to his next adventure.
This is the tenth and final in my series of Galaxy camera phone photos. I feel confident now, that I can take photos in focus (mostly) with my phone. I hope you have enjoyed the series as much as I have in making it.
This little gecko treks across my ceiling in the evenings. I love his little toes!
I don’t know why he goes on safari through the great expanse of wilderness up there, when any ants to be had would surely be at ground level, but he certainly provides entertainment for me; mostly in hoping he doesn’t fall off!
This is the sixth in my series of Galaxy camera phone photos. I had to climb on a chair to be close enough to get a good shot of him!
The fun thing about photos from my phone is that I can play around with them.
This is a little animation I made on Google Photos, from several of my photos joined together as a GIF.
If it plays for you, you might notice just how windy it was, not only to ruffle the feathers of this large hadeda, but also to sway the branches of the trees so much. No wonder the bird lost his balance!
Poetry in motion? Perhaps not!
If the GIF doesn’t play for you, there’s a static photo below, so you can at least see the hadeda.
This is the fifth in my series of Galaxy camera phone photos.
