Squirrels Settle In and Rain Means Time To Test Weather Resistant FUJINON XR18-135mm Lens

Does it look to you like squirrels are more abundant this Summer? Not only did some of them made a nest into our house and we had to evict them (no harm done to mommy squirrel or babies) but now it looks like they have taken over our backyard.

This little rascal seems to think the backyard belongs to it, having the gall to lounge on the fence early this morning, soaking up the sun. It stayed there for about an hour, not even moving away as I opened the patio door and took a couple of shots with the Fujifilm X-T1 and FUJINON XR18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR.

Note: All the pictures in this series have had some post-processing applied: some cropped, level adjusted and all sharpened.

It just started to pour and so I quickly grabbed the camera and decided to test how weather-resistant the camera and lens are. The neighbors thought I was bonkers as I ventured out into the deluge taking pictures of the flowers in the rain, camera and lens unprotected.
