Photo taken: September 30, 2014
I have a lot of photos of squirrels running. Dashing to the right, speeding off to the left, even exiting stage rear. Usually trying to get the hell away from me because they have enough of a distrust of humans that even the friendly photographer might be a danger. But this, I am almost positive, is the ONLY photo I have of a squirrel running TOWARDS me. Have the squirrels finally had enough of me violating their privacy and now they are going to launch a direct assault on the paparazzi? When I featured this photo as a Saturday Squirrel four years ago, Marilyn took it as a prompt and wrote an entertaining piece dealing with such a brave, yet obviously demented sciurine. Beware trick or treaters… nuts aren’t the only treats this crazed squirrel may be after tonight!
