I Shoot Squirrels In My Backyard, And I Can Almost Make A Living From What I Love

Some years ago I started to take photos from my kitchen window of wild red squirrels, and do that still. Normally, I get bored after doing something for a few years, but not with animal photography. I still watch these adorable animals almost every day and take photos. They come and they go.

I try to bring some magic, wonder, and happiness with my work, which is real animal pictures and not Photoshop. Only sometimes I take away a wire or some food. I also put out some videos on Youtube.

As of today, the wild animals I’ve captured have been published in about 25 newspapers. Articles about my work have appeared on the internet in about 30 countries. Two books are published, cute squirrel postcards, and a Calendar.

Was really worried for the squirrels for a second after reading the title >^<

Me too. I hope someday this article's title be included in a lingustics textbook. Maybe in the semantics section. Sounds not only like squirrels being killed, but also that the author is enjoying it and selling squirrel fur. The meaning changes completely by swapping the meaning of just this one single word. I find that fascinating.
