Wildlife Shots

I went camping last weekend for the first time in 10 years. It was awesome. I also managed to get some decent pictures of a few camping creatures I saw during my stay.

A big bug. I have no idea what it is, but it liked the toilet stall in the women's can.

Columbia Ground Squirrel. Isn't he sweet? He was quite brave and spent some time in out campsite cruising for left-overs.

Here, he's drinking left-over grape juice from my sister-in-law's cup. He got purple whiskers.

Butterflies at the beach. Gorgeous!

I have more photos to post in the coming days.

Pictures of some of our camping grub are here.

The bug is scary. I would have screamed my head off I think!
The squirrel is such a cute creature. We have a couple of 'em in the garden, I love the way they move and run around like mad.
The picture of the butterflies is simply beautiful.

I agree with Milla - that bug IS scary. I think I would have screamed my head off, too. The squirrel sure has pretty colors - yep, a cutie. And the butterflies - great, magical shot, WC.
