While visiting the Franklin Park Conservatory in Columbus, I was thinking about the butterflies that I saw the last time I was there and decided to use the 70-210 beer can. I was thinking that the insects never let me get very close and the lens would be perfect. The problem? The butterflies are not in season & I ended up with a long lens while shooting flowers and plants.
On the bright side, their was a big fat squirrel in the palm house & I was the only one with a lens long enough to get a good shot of it. The little varmint was up high in the trees, licking the leaves on one particular tree. I figured that with all of the cold winter raging outside, he must have been pretty happy in the warm palm house.
If I were a squirrel, I would be after the tiny oranges that were obviously ripe and ready to eat. This little rodent preferred the palm leaves. To each his own, I guess.
Enjoy your palm leaves Mr. Squirrel. I'll come back and check on you in February when the winter is in full force. I wonder if I could find him a little Hawaiian shirt?
