Red Squirrel / Eurasisches Eichhörnchen

in photography •  last month 

Of course, I do know, that the title says "Red Squirrel", but this one is brown 😉

Ich weiß natürlich, dass der englische Name "Rotes Eichhörnchen" lautet, dieses aber dunkelbraun ist 😉

The dark brown squirrels can be found especially in the area of the Austrian and the Swiss Alps. Particularly striking is the white belly.

Speziell im Bereich der Österreichischen Schweizer Alpen sind die dunkelbraunen Eichhörnchen zu finden. Besonders auffällig ist dabei der weiße Bauch.

Last weekend I was able to watch this little guy in the neighboring garden, as he scurried to a walnut tree again and again, and ran with two or even three nuts in his mouth on the fence back to his nest.
Luckily I had my Sigma Telezoom 150-600mm, but the distance was nearly too big even for this lens.

Letztes Wochenende konnte ich diesen kleinen Kerl im Nachbargarten beobachten, wie er immer wieder zu einem Walnussbaum huschte, und mit zwei oder sogar drei Nüssen am Zaun zurück zu seinem Nest lief.
Glücklicherweise hatte ich mein Sigma Telezoom 150-600mm dabei, aber auch für dieses Objektiv war die Entfernung noch fast zu groß.

Incidentally, the fence is not so crooked because of any lens distortion, but it really looks like this :)

Der Zaun ist übrigens nicht wegen irgendwelcher Objektivverzerrungen so schief, sondern schaut wirklich so aus :)

All photos were shot without a tripod with the Canon EOS R Camera and the telephoto lens SIGMA 150-600mm F5-6.3 DG OS HSM C at a distance between about 15 and 30 meters (45-90 feet).

Great shots of it, your just trying to make me move the Sigma to the top of my wish list with such cool shots like these arent you LOL

!trdo !BEER

Good morning JJ 😊

No, I do not want to influence your decision, how do you get that?


Thank you so much, have a !BEER

LMAO I know mate I was just teasing well sort of when you throw in this greta shot

I hope your weekend has started well Mine not so much last night our internet and Tv went down at &PM and was out all evening but it is back up this morning thankfully, no morning walk we are getting rain and wind from the outer bands of the Hurricane but luckily not to bad at all and nothing like what hit the Bahamas so we are lucky

!BEER

I know ;) and I know, that you will decide, what's best for you and your photography.

I don't mind, when I don't have internet access, but I have to know it before - like inside of my parents house, where you have to be very close to a window to have a signal. It's terrible, when it suddenly stops and you don't know why or how long it will take to work again.

We have had rain all day long yesterday, and today it was still raining until about noon. So I had no morning walk either. Now it seems to get better, but the air has cooled quite a bit down.

Have I told you, that there were some changes when you send a !BEER ?

Yes your right sometimes no internet is good when it is planned as you say, but when it comes out of the blue it catches you out,
We had rain overnight but its clearing up now, there is a fire Muster today here I may try and swing by that and check it out should be cool for some new shots

... and I have said too early, that it's getting better here, because now it is windy and I think, soon it will be raining again.

I have become used of your typos by now can somehow read them without problems. WSome words and phrases which I do not know, I can easily find via Google ... but what is a "fire Muster"? 😵 I have an idea though, but I'm not sure.
!BEER

Its still pretty grey here I hope it clears soon I want to get tot he Fire Muster early on while its quiet and it starts at 10AM,

And in this case its not a typo I fire Muster is when fire trucks gather for an event, and in one of the local parks here one is happening today,m, they will have both new and vintage trucks I missed it last year but its an event I always enjoy going to

Cool, I would have been right, because I thought of some event with fire fighters 😎
Sounds quite interesting, old fire trucks look pretty cool. We have such events here too, but I think in the US they will be a bit bigger, like most is a bit bigger ;)
I wish you much fun and some good photos taken in sunshine 😊

I always forget the !BEER

Our squirrels here are most of this dark brown color with the white belly. Sometimes we see red squirrels, but I don't think, I have ever seen a grey one in nature.

Das sind a tolle Fotos!

Danke dir vielmals 😊
Das Eichhörnchen war so fleißig am Nüsse hin- und hertragen, dass ich wahrscheinlich noch näher gehen hätte können, aber dann hätte ich keine Deckung mehr gehabt ;)
!BEER

Lieber in Deckung bleiben, und mehr Fotos machen😊

Richtig, und dieses Mal habe ich nur wieder mal das Sigma getestet, weil ich auch irgendwie überrascht war, denn neben dem Eichhörnchen kamen dann noch ein paar Vögel dorthin, und auf allen Fotos sitzen sie auf diesem alten hässlichen Zaun ;)

Ein klarer Hotspot für Tiere😊

Ja, und kürzlich ist auch ein Biber dazugekommen, der sich irgendwo am Bach nebenan angesiedelt hat, und der das Schilf am Teich vom Nachbarn ausreißt.

We have absolutely no white bellied squirrels around here. Ours are brown to gray, or reddish. Red squirrels can be huge and quite aggressive. Terrific photos

I think, this one is a fighter too - did you see his ear, and he is looking somehow weird over the fence ;) lol
Sometimes we see red squirrels here, but mostly they are like this one, dark brown with the white belly.
Thank you for your nice comment and that you like that little guy, @momzillanc 😊
!BEER

You're welcome. Does the "!BEER" have the exclamation point before the word because it does something in SteemIt?

You have to have at least 6 beer tokens staked to use the command !BEER ;)
You can find more info at @beerlover's blog.
Since the last hardfork it is useless to upvote comments, and now I send the beer tokens instead.

I see.

Sorry, you don't have enough staked BEER in your account. You need 6 BEER in your virtual fridge to give some of your BEER to others. To view or trade BEER go to steem-engine.com

that squirrel is carrying his own nuts.how odd.

You think, that's odd? Then have a look at this ... 3 nuts 😉


Maybe he has won a fight - look at his ear ;)

poor thing. he is definitely an alpha or gang squirrel, and those are the nuts of his rivals...

Haha, that must be it 😉 lol


BTW: I hope, you don't mind, and I thank you very much, but please don't vote on my comments - it is very nice, but worthless since the last hardfork. Use your voting power for good posts.

ha yes i know its bad habit from before the fork... :P

The habit is not bad, I have also upvoted the comments I have got, but now it's just useless, and everybody should use his voting power for upvoting posts. I hope you don't mind me. Instead of upvotes I give !BEER now. Since a few hours you don't get a full beer anymore, but 0.1 beer is better than nothing ;)

  ·  last month (edited)

this is a good point, and i have cookies. i just need to find a way to send them as comments!! !cookie

I have no idea, how these things work. For the beer you have to have at least 6 beer staked to be able to send one beer per day. For each 6 staked beers you can send one !BEER ;)

Gute Idee!
!BEER

Danke 😊 aber das Problem ist, dass du mehr beer tokens brauchst, um verschenken zu können - schau mal bei @beerlover vorbei für mehr Infos ;)

Hey @jzn, here is your BEER token. Enjoy it!

This is absolutely fabulous, Johann! @johannpiber

Catching them doing their winter hunting and gathering is always a photo op! I can usually hear ours before I see them. They can be heard cutting the clusters of nuts or shaking the tree. :)

This squirrel is so full of character and you really did him justice. I like the shot of him listening to all around him, but, the one with the clusters in his mouth is priceless!

Great job! Also congrats on making the #Hit-Parade again!

!tip

This little guy was really a surprise for me. I have seen him running over the fence and thought, maybe he comes back ... and he did, with the nuts in his mouth 😊

He was very busy and ran quite a few times mostly on the fence and sometimes in the grass. In between he sometimes stopped and listened. Maybe he has heard me or my camera, because after a while he didn't come anymore.

But I didn't mind, because I had got some nice shots of him 😊

Thank you very much for your story of your squirrels - I didn't hear any noise from my squirrel though - and for your nice words, Denise. I wish you nice evening and a great Sunday tomorrow 😊

... and thank you for the !tip - have a !BEER from me ;)

Howdy again sir johannpiber! Those are super good shots and the squirrel is a very striking one, I like the color and the white underside.

This squirrel is a fighter - have you seen his ears? I think, he has had some fights in his life ;)
Thank you, that you like the photos - it was much fun watching him collecting the nuts and bringing them home :)
!BEER

Sqirrels are super fun, yes his ears looked a little rough! lol. I bet he is a tough one. Thanks so much for more beer!

I like squirrels very much too, and I hope, he will be there next time. Then I will try to hide somewhere else, maybe nearer ;)
You like the beer, I have the beer, why shouldn't I give you the !BEER ? lol

That would be so interesting if he was there next time and you could take pictures of him each visit! Yes, beer for everyone! Except those downvoters.

I think, I'll visit my parents next weekend, and I think, he will still be there :)
!BEER

Does those squirrels stay out all winter or do they hibernate? Thanks for the beer!

Squirrels do not hibernate but only something like winter resting. When it gets dark, squirrels return to their sleeping nest and sleep a lot ... that's what I have read ;)
