Artist's Description

I can’t resist sharing a humorous encounter with one of South Coast Botanic Garden’s bold and cheeky squirrels! I was in one of the flower beds, looking for the best angle on a poppy, when I heard rustling and saw a bit of movement in the corner of my field of vision. It was a squirrel foraging just a few feet away. I watched with increasing amusement as the squirrel spied and checked out my tote bag (containing a kneeling pad, spare batteries, a water bottle, a sun hat, my now-discarded jacket as the morning had warmed, and some small camera accessories – but NO squirrel food). My macro lens performed really well for a non-standard application, and what an ad for Whole Foods Market! The image is cropped to give a closer look at Mr. Curiosity. (Olympus E-510 & Zuiko 50mm macro, f/6.3, 1/200 sec., ISO 200, open shade and morning sun, handheld)
