For only the 2nd or 3rd time in years, I couldn't find a place to eat my lunch in the botanical gardens. There are about a dozen benches but all were taken, and the 2 picnic tables were in the hot sun (it was about 80 degrees today). So, I sat on some grass, which turned out to be quite nice. I just might do it again tomorrow.
My lunch was very peaceful, until the squirrels caught wind of my food. At one point there were 5 of them all trying to get fed (none of them did). This was my best shot of one of them. It turned out well because it's sharp, in focus, and the squirrel only has a hint of red-eye. With my compact, most of my squirrel photos turn out blurry and with bright red devil eyes.
