The Jay and the Tree Rat

Here is a selection of images put to ambient sound I recorded on the same day...
This is the first remote shutter work I have attempted that you can see in the squirrel clip. Due to the conditions shutter speeds were low at about 1/30th of a second. I didn't intend putting them together like this but due to the motion blur in the shots none were stand alone usable images. Put together they are at least entertaining. I could really have done with a flash which would have done the trick I think to freeze the squirrel.
So the squirrel clip is just for fun. I like my woodland shots as the sound fits better with the images I feel. A jay is the unusual sound you can hear repeating itself in the clip.

Apologies for the top clip being a little small. If you noticed the two people in the last image well done, no need to book an opticians appointment just yet. I'm still working on formatting issues. Hope you enjoy them anyway.

  1. Hi all,

    The tree rat is abundant in riverine Acacia woodland. Like the black-tailed tree rat, it is a nocturnal tree dweller, although it will take refuge in any tree, not just the Acacia. It uses its long tail for balance when climbing and running along thin branches, but is not as agile as it's black-tailed cousin. Thanks for sharing it......
