Sunflower thief

Celeste Mookherjee

Long Beach, United States

Artist's Description

Here’s proof that squirrels at my local botanical garden steal sunflower seed heads. :) They climb a sunflower stalk, sever the head with their teeth, and scurry off with their prize, stopping to munch seeds. It’s very funny to watch. If a human like me moves nearby, they scamper up the nearest tree with their prize. And if the human has a camera — the squirrel thief is caught red-handed, as this little girl was! (Olympus E-5 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/8, 1/125 sec., ISO 1250, shade, handheld)

Top 10 (2nd Place) in “Snack Time” challenge in Local Critters group (July 2014)
