This Squirrel is not Squirrelly.


But Zac says that I am...Back to the California Ground Squirrel, who made an appearance in a post from last week...The light was pretty harsh but obviously I'd be a fool to resist taking pictures of this sweet little guy.
In between looking at the whales surfacing off the coast, I checked this guy out- totally snarfing a bunch of yummy squirrel food. He left for a few minutes but when he came back, he was on a mission: carrying nesting material for his/her burrow I suspect.
Watching squirrels and other various little mammals eat is freaking adorable. Don't deny it. (I posted the last photo before, but I'm putting up again cause I can. Cuzacan, that's right) Camera Critters , Scenic Sunday, SOOC, Face of the Week

I am just wondering why these fun, silly dudes were never domesticated. They are so much fun, and they seem about to say something.

I just LOVE all of these photos! Squirrels are so much fun to photograph, because they are so full of personality! One of my best friends nicknamed me 'squirrel', so I've got a fondness for them now.

He is adorable, the last one is so funny :)

Sistertex said...

Awww...he is so cute. I take a lot of squirrel photos too. AND people give me grief about it. ;) But I think they are cute and their movements are comical. Thanks so much for adding this to 'Face of the Week'. Great addition! I appreciate your participation! Have a great week!

I love love love the third shot. It's like he asked you a question and he's waiting for your answer. Great pics!

Michael said...

These are brilliant. That last shot is class. Thanks for sharing.

dailymommysurvival said...

That last shot is absolutely classic! Too cute. We have two families of Squirrels by my house that my neighbors have basically domesticated - they all but eat out of your hands and love dough-nuts! (lol)

Here's my Straight Out of the Camera Sunday entry - if you'd like to check it out! =)

=) Happy REALLY REALLY belated Straight Out of the Camera Sunday! (lol) =)
