OK, that is it - this is sooo cute that I am now going to have to do a whole post myself using some of my cute ground squirrel shots. Is it possible to take a not-cute shot of a ground squirrel? Last time I was in Manning Park (Southern British Columbia), I was determined to not take any ground squirrel shots (since last time I was there I used up a whole card just taking their photos. We were supposed to be going hiking, but I got distracted), but, in the end, I just couldn't help myself. They are just sooooo cute!!!!!

OK Jill, we need to personify this little chap, give it a name and have everyone pitch in with a story line and sell it to kids around the world...don't ya wish. This little one is way too cute, melts your heart~

Ohhhhhh! What a great picture. I've seen pictures of them standing guard the way they do, but you had wonderful patience to get this shot. I love it.

No one, but no one has the right to be so cute. Love the white sround the eyes and on the nose. Don't you just want to cuddle it?
