"Lady, you keep getting in my face, I'm going to jump. And then you just watch it because when I jump up and down again it could be really, really high. Don't you be messing with me."
Well, of course I did. This little tough guy was too funny to ignore. I wish I had a camera that was better at close-up focusing because this guy was a fasssst mover.
A raccoon appeared at the coontina over the weekend but I don't think he was Freddie (something about his facial markings). But this raccoon was sooooooooo skinny, maybe he was Freddie, just an unrecognizable Freddie. I gave this raccoon that may or may not have been Freddie two plates of cat food and then he was good to go. His tail was sooooo skinny, it looked like it belonged to a stray cat. Raccoons store fat reserves in their tails so this guy definitely was starving with a tail like that. Poor thing. But regarding cameras, I wish I had one that could take better photos of something moving around so fast in the dark.
However, I can always count on getting a nice clear shot of a turtle on a spring day.
They're not going anywhere too fast when it's a tiny bit cool out there. But a feature I'd like on my next camera would have something that would make a turtle come out of their shell and perhaps even have a pleasant expression on his or her face. It's hard to get an expression when the only thing a turtle will show you from their face is their nostrils!
And if I could get a pleasant expression feature on that next camera, I'd like to try it out on Violet. Even better, make that a fake smile feature. If you can have a get rid of red-eye feature on a camera, why not a get rid of scowl-face too?
