A lesson in how not to do a photo shoot.

Well the photo shoot started out just as one would expect. Jasmine, on the left being a perfect angel and her sister Fawn, waiting patently for me to take her picture, had their poor mom going back and forth..

Of course it only went down hill from here when the two dogs decided to chase poor skeeter up the tallest cypress tree in the yard. Yes, that skunk looking creature way up the tree is him. If you take the tree trunk you see below Skeeter and add that below the image that’s how high he was. We guessed a good 35-40 feet up there.
All these were taken with the Nikkor AF-S 70-300mm G ED and mostly at 300mm.

After the girls left Skeeter settled down and began to enjoy the view.

He also thought it kinda cool to look so far down at me. Keep in mind the only tree limb this cat ever sat on as a kid was the top of a door. Yes, he was actually that skinny once.

He kept entertained for a good hour checking out the view.

Then he realized the predicament he was in. He had never even climbed up a small tree before in his life and had managed to go 35 feet straight up and no branches to use for the climb down.

I’m just glad I didn’t see him coming down the tree, I would have had a heart attack I think.
Thankfully he made it down seemingly uninjured. He did have some dirt ground into his nose, and you know how it is with auto accidents so we will know more tomorrow :)
