Just so you know the ones in trees are different from the ones on the ground
yes much different the ones in the trees just go boing but the ones on the ground will chase you and feed on your paralyzed remains
If you hold down B or A (either one works), the clock will not appear. It even works while you’re emoting. Just click the emotion, hold down whichever button, and snap your picture! I usually use B, but if you’re in the middle of a bunch of flowers or something and are nervous about accidentally running (I’m like this), A works too. Just remember that A will also make you use whatever tool you’re holding. I think Y will also prevent the clock from appearing, but it makes you pick stuff up, so I never bothered with it. Enjoy your clock-less pictures, everyone!
