While walking down at La Jolla Harbor area, I came across this little guy. He stopped stuffing his face full of corn kernals and sunflower seeds as if to beg for more food. Pretty cute little Ground Squirrel. Even if they are just rats with furry tails. :o)

  • This was such a beggar. I couldn’t resist that look… no I didn’t feed him, I had to take the picture instead. ;o)

    glad you said ‘rats with furry tails’…guess this is the ground version of what i call ‘tree rats’…
    gotta admit, cute, though…nice pic!

  • Hehe… you got it. These little guys have cleaned out my bird feeder several times now. I have to find another way to hang it on my patio so they cannot get to it. ;o)

    these little bastards are smarter than they appear…have seen feeders that are spring loaded, and drop ‘em to the ground when they get on it…but they will figure out some other way…it’s easier than working for food…

  • LOL isn’t that the truth! :o))

    The little critter has a real thoughtful look on his face.
    Cool shot!

  • Yes, he did. Whether to keep eating the corn on the ground or crawl up my leg to see what I had in my camera bag. ;o)
