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.
Cadbury creme eggs were always a favourite at Easter time and I ate more than my fair share of them growing up in the UK. Of course, they are much smaller now than they used to be and, in my opinion, not quite as yummy.
You used to be able to buy these here in SA, many years ago. Then they disappeared for decades. Amazingly, last week I found one small box of them just sitting there in a local store. I haven’t been back since, so have no idea if there are any left. And I only bought three!
However, my favourite cream eggs ever, I used to buy at a Transport Cafe, when I was a kid living in the north of England. They were half a chocolate egg with the most delicious white cream inside. They stopped making them while I was still a kid, which was such a pity, as they were affordable to us. But I still remember them fondly.
