I thought that I should contribute to the theme "near misses". As I spent the whole Easter holliday "hunting" squirrels I have plenty of missed shots. These are four of them. Squirrels on the move :-).

Notice the tip of a tail just by the birch trunk in the upper left picture. That is the reason for why the other squirrel is in such a hurry.

Enjoy my misses!

Yes, I know the problem to catch squirrels, I've got similar shots. Maybe I will upload them soon. You made a good job and You've good interesting idea how to show them :)

The art of "catching" ?? Maybe the word "nearly" should be in there somewhere :)

I bet many of us have taken shots like this, but to see them displayed like this is unusual, eyecatching and definitely fun as well.

Thanks for raising a smile here.
