Explore wilderness, and little amazing creatures

A nature workout.

It was nothing short of fun, wild and amazing. It's been a while since John and I actually went for nature walks and hikes since we graduated from Poly almost 3 years ago, but we dragged our not-so-sorry asses out to go for one on a Sunday morning. We walked many bridges at high tides and there was nothing much to see; so we hunted for little insects, flowers-bees and nectar. On our way out after a 3 hours hike, we found a squirrel on a sign trying to eat his apricot - then I walked as near as I could (on my prime lens) and photographed it with much enthusiasm and intent. I think we walked over 10,000 steps in total, so I sat on the bridge to show you my happy smiling face.

Now I'd be paying for the work which I've procrastinated long enough, which I'll never learn to prioritize. Happy Sunday to you guys :)

  6. What a cute squirrel! I have a bad reputation for squirrels getting mad at me and throwing things at me when I get too close... so no more terrorizing squirrels for me haha.

    1. I know what you meant by throwing things at you. It was like, eating his apricot and looking up anxiously at me if I'd pounce at him/ steal his food - so each time he looked up I stayed perfectly still like a stone woman. So once I got my shot it scurried off so quickly!
