Squirrels In The Park – Trip 2

Are you ready for another photo spread of models who actually look cute with hairy legs?  Every Tuesday for the next few months, I’m visually documenting all twenty park trips I’ve taken to stock my photo archive in the past six years… and this week will show off the best of what my camera was able to capture on the morning of Friday October 3, 2014.  Again, photos will be posted in chronological order… and I used the first picture from that trip as my title card.  This squirrel doesn’t seem to be paying my any mind… but a number of his buddies gave me some pretty awesome pics!  And quite a few of these have never been seen by anyone but me, since only four were ever uploaded to my blog.  Let’s check them out…

Maybe it’s the moss on the tree, but this squirrel reminds me of an alligator slinking into a swamp…

He’s as hungry as an alligator too!

While you can see some twinges of red in the leaves, autumn doesn’t usually hit full stride around here until late October.  Still, Fall colors help make my squirrel photos pop even more!

Hey!!!  Come back here!!!

I’m not quite sure what angle I took this photo from…. but obviously, the squirrel is looking right at me!  What I find really odd about this photo is how the background of the ground (littered with red-twinged leaves) takes up the entire right side of the photo… and the more you look at it, the more fake it seems in contrast to the squirrel and the tree.

Blurry, but cute!  And obscene….

This poor guy’s tail may be missing a hair or three…

Look! I’m a trophy on a wall!

Hey, that’s not funny, dude!  There might be some people in the park who shoot squirrels in a different way than I do…

Oh, lighten up, killjoy!

Whatever.  Let’s move on….

If you’ve been around my blog a while, you’ve almost certainly seen this squirrel before.  Just not in this exact pose…

Oh really? Then who am I?

OK.  Wait for it……. wait for it…………..

OMG!!! It’s me!!!!! YAYAYAY!!!! I’m so excited!!!!

Yes, the cheering, happy squirrel I’ve used before in a number of my posts!  Now you’ve seen a few of the pictures I got of him before he gave me that iconic pose.  And yes, just like this past Saturday Squirrel, the nut in his mouth makes him look like he’s got a huge smile on his face…

A crystal clear photo of a classically posed squirrel enjoying a treat!

Alright amateur ornithologists, what kind of bird is this?  I have no recollection of ever seeing a bird like that before, let alone taking a picture of one…. but here it is.

I see you up there!  I love how the end of his bristly tail hangs below the branch…

I think I’ll take the low road…

This looks like a good place to watch over my territory for intruders…

And that wraps up another fun filled adventure at the local park!  Join me next Tuesday for another retro urban safari!

  1. great!!! love the trophy squirrel!!!

  2. Great crop of squirrelography. I love “Mr. Smiley” – even if it IS a nut in his mouth that makes him look like he’s grinning, it’s still very cool. Love the upside down guy too – I’ve always wondered WHY some do that in the first place – exercising their “leg and arm” muscles????? Love a good challenge????? Squirrel-retro-photos are fun……..


    • If I could hang upside down from trees without having to worry about falling off, I think I’d do it a lot too! Unfortunately, I have no business being in trees at all at this age…

  3. Cheeky little beggars, even the ones without nuts. Also, from my perspective (which is skewed due to a presently occurring fling with Good & Plenty), that possibly semi-obscene squirrel? The pink bit (not that I was studying the photo all that closely) is the stem from the humongous leaf in front of said squirrel. I do know where your mind was though… 😆

    Some very nice shots here. Next year calendar worthy I’d say.

  5. I love the leaping squirrel. I always admire a photographer’s ability to get a real action shot. You’re getting really good at this!

    • For every leaping squirrel I capture, there are about fifty I miss or that end up too blurry appreciate. Many of the greatest real life photos ever taken were largely due to luck…

    A cornucopia of squirrels plus a special guest bird!

  7. Great series of these cuties. Those photos of eating squirrels made me remember one who had peanuts, one to the left cheek, one to the right cheek anr the third between the teeth and then running away. Do you know if they ever find the hidden peanuts?

  8. Quirky Girl says:

    Cute… and obscene. That may well be the best description of a squirrel yet! 😛

  9. I think that bird might be some sort of tit. No idea which one though because of the way the colours showed on my screen!
