Dogs, with a Canon 5D mark III



I’m learning to shoot a Canon camera, a 5D mark III. I’m a Nikon shooter, the Canon controls are in the “wrong” places and the zoom is freakin’ backwards. Gary switched to Canon in 2013. My Nikon D600 failed and I sent it to Nikon’s repair shop. So if I want to shoot a DSLR, there are only Canons in the house. Guess it is time to learn something new.

This Canon is a really nice camera, better than my Nikon.

Attack Squirrel Drives Off Burglar


I could not resist posting this 🙂

MERIDIAN, Idaho (AP) — A pet squirrel named Joey prevented a burglary attempt in Idaho last week by scratching the teen suspect when he tried to break into a gun safe, police said.

The unidentified teenager told officers that the squirrel’s attack “scared him, obviously, because he wasn’t expecting to have, you know, a squirrel come flying out of nowhere at him,” said Officer Ashley Turner of the police department in Meridian, a Boise suburb. “So basically he said he took what he could and left as fast as he could.”

The squirrel’s owner, Adam Pearl, said Joey has lived in his house for about six months after he was found in a flower garden by a friend’s daughter when he was about a week old.

He said Joey’s eyes were still closed, and they set an alarm to feed him every two hours
