Just Another Cute Squirrel

You flatter me.

Squirrels are generally pretty cute and photogenic animals, but I find this picture of a squirrel I took at the park three months ago to be exceptionally adorable.  The way he’s looking slightly up and to the left of the camera.  That big ol’ nut he’s carrying off to the side in his mouth like a pipe.  The pretty yellow Fall foliage that serves as a frame for this real life work of art.  How he isn’t perched on the limb, but is curled around the side as if he’s still climbing onto the top of it.  You can even see the lower few pawpads on his left foot!  What a cutie!  And you wouldn’t expect anything less from a critter good enough to be a Saturday Squirrel…

Have a great weekend everyone!

    The foliage and the clear blue sky adds to the awesomeness of this picture. Have a great weekend.

    • That was a beautiful Fall day. I’m still waiting for another sunny and not freezing day when I’m off work to take some more pictures. They’re so much easier to see when the trees are all bare…

    Terrific shot! That squirrel is quite the looker. Cutie, cute, cute, cute!

  5. That really is a great portrait. You could paint that. Or cartoon it. A perfect squirrel in his perfect branch.

    • I tried drawing something a few days ago, for the first time since my computer blew up in October. I was very rusty and didn’t bother to finish it. I would not do this beautiful squirrel justice anymore…

    What a cutie! I’m amazed by how it’s able to carry that giant nut too.

    Looking round surveying his surroundings, nut in paw. All is well with the world!

  8. Great shot – obviously he was just getting home from grocery shopping – he got a bonanza of a nut to haul home. Bet that was yummy!


    • Squirrels would just love those bins in the grocery store where you can scoop out your own nuts. Maybe one would try and haul a whole bag of them up their tree…

      • That would not surprise me – sometimes I’m amazed at what they DO haul up their trees – whole branches full of leaves for nesting, whole apples, they are rather amazing critters! I bet when the grocery stores close up at night, in addition to the mice, and bugs that come out, some smart squirrel breaks in and DOES raid those big nut bins! Yep – wouldn’t surprise me at all!

  9. Your ‘model’ must be part Walenda, part Mecca shopper.
