I get a lot of compliments here for the many awesome squirrel photos I manage to capture, which I always
very humbly accept. Some wonder how I’m able to get so many cute pictures of the little rascals. No, I’m not a squirrel whisperer who can get them to strike a pose for me by merely asking, nor am I in any way extraordinarily lucky. I merely take advantage of the fact that I am often surrounded by squirrels who are very rarely boring. You know that saying about how if you get a million monkeys situated at a million typewriters, one of them will eventually write something that gets Freshly Pressed? Well, the same theory applies to squirrel photography.
I took this picture at the park back in May. Here you see four squirrels all in the same shot enjoying this tree behind the softball diamond. Our park is absolutely brimming with sciurines, enough so that in a span of about an hour and a half, I had taken almost 300 photos of just squirrels! And if you’ve watched squirrels for any period of time, you know their hyperactive antics put on quite a show and often get the furballs in such interesting and cute positions. A persistent photographer will never fail to strike gold time and time again.
These guys always reward me for the time I spend taking pictures of their everyday routines for my Saturday Squirrel feature!
Have a great weekend everyone!
