WHOA ... it's a chilly 37 degrees this morning. Summer lasted forever and Autumn gave it five days. It's winter time in California!! There will be no drinking on the patio, even if it is hot coffee. That was a pretty quick transition into Levis and long sleeve shirts. The best part is its back to COWBOY BOOTS.
I have to admit, I've discovered it's not all roses and gravy when it comes to photographing wildlife, even if they are just in your back yard. Something was off ... I just couldn't for the life of me figure it out. They are definitely curious little guys ... and by little, I mean the size of my Cooper. Soooo many closeups as they scoped out the camera every single night.
Suddenly, as I lounged on the couch after getting the camera inside and pulling out the video card ... the light bulb went on, as bright as the sun. NOOOOOOO!!!!
The nose knows!!! Those little buggers have been scent marking my CAMERA!! You know, the one I've been touching all over every morning and night. I wash my hand a lot, but let me tell you I washed them in boiling hot water with lots of soap, followed by alcohol this time!! EEEWWWWWW!!! Then I scrubbed the camera with bleach.
