Caught In The Act

Animuhls (like kids) can do the darndest things. Sometimes, if you’re a great photographer (like these folks as seen on My Modern Met) you can get a terrific shot by just being in the right place at the right time. Talent and a great camera helps, of course!

These were a part of The Mammal Society’s Photographer of the Year competition earlier this year. (The 2014 competition is now open.) Individual photo creditos in the hovers.

People are helping out these little guys by taking them in for emergency care– let’s go to the videotape with 9News.com.

Stay Safe, Yosemite Friends

Yosemite National Park is enduring one of the worst fires in California history, and we hope it gets contained VERY soon. This little guy is park resident Chip McMunkster, and he’s found something tasty.

Sqwerl Tales

Guppy Momma tells the story.

“After a rainy morning, this squirrel was on a deck railing close to our glass door. It was so close to the camera that I had to zoom out to get the whole squirrel. ”

“It spent a long time lounging and looking sulky, then it spent a long time grooming and eventually left. At one point we thought the squirrel would fall backwards off the railing.”
