Squirrel Blip Friday ....
... Squirrel and friends.
Today was absolutely gorgeous!!! And as I result I
wasted spent lots of time outside! My camera came with an app call SnapBridge that I've downloaded to my smartphone that acts as a remote shutter release. Before the warm weather months start I wanted to experiment with the app so that I might use it more often for bird and other wildlife photography.
The app is awesome in the fact that not only can you use it as a shutter release but you can also control the focus points. I first set the camera out on the tripod in the backyard on the deck ... and then went inside to wait on a bird or squirrel. The squirrel picture was taken remotely but the Carolina wren wasn't. The wren came to the deck whilst I was still out there and I was able to get several shots of him/her before going in the house.
After getting some squirrel pictures I took my camera out front and set it up facing the front porch. I set out some peanuts and then sat where I could see if the chipmunk would come out. The picture I posted to my SquirrelsEtc journal was taken remotely. The chipmunk picture in my collage was taken after I moved to a different location under the birch tree.
Tomorrow is the first day of Spring! YAY!
