Artist's Description

Another set of extreme close-ups was granted by Mama (squirrel) this week. She’s within 5 inches of my hand but can’t bring herself to go that last bit without too much fear. I’m never going to make her come all the way, especially as hungry as she is feeding her brood, but I’d love for her to climb into my lap someday.

“Aim for the eyes” is the rule and again I’ve trashed it intentionally. I wanted Mama’s hands while she ate. Since she will always face me if I talk to her (Like Jill, she used to face the opposite way or sideways to prepare for a hasty departure if necessary.), she offered the closest shots ever and is no longer concerned about the big black camera or the noises it makes. She is even comfortable with the flash but it just ruins most shots by making her eyes a mess and her fur a weird hue that isn’t natural and is so off even I can see it. LOL!

Yes, I know squirrels don’t have hands; they possess paws. But when you look at these fingers, thumbs, and obvious dexterity, who can really say they aren’t as expressive and useful as the hairy things I’m typing this with? LOL!
