This gray squirrel looks like its trying to blend in with the scenery until it’s time to move on. Took this shot with a telephoto lens–the squirrel was about 50 feet above ground, safe enough to pose for a minute or so.
Water lilies are blooming at Sacramento’s William Land Park which means red dragonflies are about. Took this shot yesterday with my camera on a tripod–getting too old to hand-hold a 300mm lens–but at least I didn’t fall in the pond.
Summer temps are soaring in California, even at high altitudes like Lake Tahoe which is a great place to escape from the heat, but not the sun. You will burn if not careful.
