After a long stretch of icky weather since the start of Spring had kept me from being able to do one of my park walks looking for squirrels, I’m happy to report that I was able to take my camera for a visit on Thursday morning. No hip waders necessary, and not so uncomfortably hot that the squirrels were all hiding away in the AC of their nests. Though the squirrel activity wasn’t as robust as I normally see it, I got quite a few great captures in just over an hour that should help stock the next couple months worth of these Saturday Squirrel features… and as always, was treated to a few squirrel sights that I’ve never gotten pictures of before. Sciurophiles rejoice!
Among those treasures I ran across the other day was this cute little guy, who stood still long enough for me to get quite a few shots of. I don’t know if he’s happy to see me, or he wonders what in the hell I’m doing stopping to look at him… but I had a giddy smile on my face the whole time I took pictures of him because he just looked so adorable with his short summer fur and bemused expression. Man, I really missed doing this!
Have a great weekend everyone!
