One afternoon while it was snowing lightly my little squirrel friend was hanging out on my fence once again. I walked out to my driveway to see how close to her and the fence she would let me get with my camera and I was surprised to see that after a year of knowing me…she let me get about 5 feet from her before she got a little nervous. I captured this shot of her just as she put her paws on the fence and started to look like she was going to lean forward to leave right as I was asking her if she wanted some fresh peanuts. She stopped and hung out right at the fence waiting for me to give her peanuts. :) I think she likes that I live in this house now because she gets treats a lot. :) Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my photo…I hope you enjoy it!

This photo was taken in my yard in Cranberry Township, PA with my Nikon D5100 and cropped in Corel Paint Shop Pro X4. I added a soft focus to it too so that it would bring more attention to her and not to the greenery behind her.

    This is just too cute!

  • Viv, Thank you so much…this little girl has so much personality and I hope that I capture her well enough for everyone to see that in her!! This section of the fence that she LOVES to sit on blew down a week or so ago because of really high winds we were having…I can’t wait to get it repaired and put back into place for her to come visit again. Although…she was sitting on my window the other morning so the fence missing must not really bother her LOL Thanks SO MUCH for the fave on this one!!
