To my delight, things continued so I chanced a run for the ol' "brownie" (remember those funny little cameras?) and positioned myself for some shots, blurry shots more than likely. Delighted again, my subject practically posed for me! It was so great! Usually these goof-ball squirrels run for the hills when they see me! But, beep...beep...beep, there I am taking the best photos of that rascal, through a double-paned glass window, no less!
Long-story-short, no photos to share with you. Believe me, I'm even sadder than you are...oops, sorry for the assumption. But let me tell you what I saw:
So I ran (ok, walked fast) to the computer and popped in the media card and nothing. Take it out, pop it in again (times 5, 10?)...restart computer...turn off computer and turn back on. Nothing, nothing, nothing! Arggghhh!!! I put the media card back into the camera and CARD ERROR. Noooooo! I got out 'the book', the instructions and blah, blah, blah but no fixes for my CARD ERROR.
I'm a great believer in technical equipment having the ability to heal itself if given enough 'alone time', say, oh, a couple of days worth. Can't prove it, can't even think of an example, but I hold on to that belief and always try it in these situations. No luck again this time.
Part of my disappointment was not being able to share the actual sight of it all with others. I know it wasn't exactly earth-shattering, never-before-seen stuff but it was silly and sometimes we all need a little silly. Fortunately, I remembered that you all are creative, imaginative people and I could describe it, you could imagine it and still experience some silly! Go ahead if you like, give it a try!
Great work, everyone!!!
