Babies are unpredictable so therefore tears and tantrums are to be expected. Don’t be afraid to keep the camera shooting rather than waiting for that perfect pose or moment because somewhere in 30 consecutive shots will be one winner. Presuming you have a good amount of natural daylight, choose an ISO of 100-400 and use a wide aperture (f/2.8-f/8) for a shallow DOF (depth of field). Use continuous shooting mode on your camera to capture 2, 3, 4, or 5 photos in a couple of seconds.

Amazingly cute pictures of a songbird and red squirrel are documented by Quebec-based photographer Andre Villeneuve
Creatures either tame or wild are a constant obsession shared by many. If you happen to be one to marvel at images of adorable animals, then you will love the photos of Quebec-based photographer Andre Villeneuve. He took some amazingly cute images of songbirds and red squirrels eating together that are just astonishing. Villeneuve regularly shoots nature and wildlife scenes. These images however were not the typical scenes he expected to come across. What we are able to witness through his pictures is an extraordinary connection between the red squirrel and the songbird. The two of them seem genuinely curious and intrigued by each other. The charming photos show the two animals as they frolic in the snow together, as they eat together, and as they seem to examine blooming flowers amongst what is left of the outdoors. There is even a photograph where they appear to be playing a friendly game of checkers!

The results are actually quite remarkable as he juxtaposes scenes from video games and movies with some otherwise mundane backgrounds.
