I was out early morning and that’s when all the squirrels are out. This little sweetie was so scared…he ran to the top of the tree. I finally found him up there and zoomed in for this shot. I left a bunch of peanuts around the tree for him as I was leaving. City squirrels are more skittish. The squirrels in the parks are more brave of us humans!!! :o)


squirrel, animal, furry, paws, claws, ears

I love the arts…nature…animals…
I find my peace while photographing
the beauty around me…
sunrises, sunsets, trees, flowers, animals,
the lake, architecture…
I also like to draw and back in the 80s, I loved all of the work by
Patrick Nagel, and I was doing drawings like his!!!

    Poor baby. For sure city squirrels are more skiddish.

  • I baby talked to him and everything…see, I was out very early morn and at that time the squirrels are all over the place because not many humans are out. I think I startled them…but I left plenty of peanuts around the trees!!! :o)

    Great capture…these guys are hard to shot….all the leaves on the trees makes it difficult to focus…and once you have…they are gone! Great job!

  • TY so very much and for the fave…I had a problem finding the perfect opening because he was up pretty high!!! :o)

    Oh, poor baby… hope he gets to enjoy some of the peanuts!!!! :)))))xx

  • LOL…I was sweet talking to him the whole time. I hate when little animals get so scared, but I don’t blame them because humans can be nasty to them!!! I have a “friend” that shoots squirrels because they get into his house!!! I feel there are other ways to remove them then to kill them!!! MEN!!! Glad I don’t own a man!!! LOL ;o)
