Squirrel Posing For The Camera



This is the first time I was able to catch a squirrel so still. I took the shot, he then turned to me for a few seconds then ran away. This was at the Botanical Gardens during my walk. Ratty, over at The Everyday Adventurer, this one's for you. Enjoy!

I like this little guy! You got a great photo of him! It's exciting when you're able to get a quick shot of an animal before it runs away, isn't it? Judging by the snout, it looks like a Western Gray. That's how I know I'm obsessed with squirrels; I now know the different types just by looking at their faces.

Great shot of a cute squirrel. I'm wanting to post a squirrel now. LOL.

Icy BC said...

You got a real great shot of this squirrel, Jo!

Z, yeah she was quite a diva :D

Ratty, You are amazing, you know so much about these little guys. I know nothing about them. But, it was fun finally getting a good photo of one of them.

DK, lol! I'm sure you'll find some in your botanical gardens. They are all over in mine.

Icy, I got lucking with this shot. It's very difficult getting one that will stand still.

Great shot! Maybe he was hoping you'd throw him a nut or two!

Cher said...

Ayie said...

I've always wanted to snap of a photo of one too, but they were always too quick for me. :)

That's a cute squirrel, be so still for you to photograph.

What a cute little squirrel! I love watching squirrels play in our yard. Sometimes they eat our raspberries, they hold the berry in both paws and nibble - so cute!

Tes said...

One of my favorite photo subjects! Good capture, Jo! That little guy really knows how to strike a pose!

Much fluffier than the ones we have in Florida.

kat said...

Hhahaha great shot Jo. I thought before having a squirrel pet hahaha.

I don't think it actually posed, Joanne...you know...I think it's like that moment on Discovery Channel right before the Tiger prances upon the gazelle... it's that wait right before sudden death... hahahahahahahahha! :D :D

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Cinnamon girl, lol!!! That's what I should have been doing :D

Cher, I think you are right. He didn't shy away from the camera.

ayie, I know huh? either that or he was too lazy to move.

Robin, isn't he though? thanks.

lina, I got lucky with this one, usually they are too fast and run away.

Lidian, they really ae so cute somtimes.

Tes, thanks, he does. He may be a celebrity squirrel :)

SquirrelQueen, thanks so much for coming by and commenting.

MountainWoman, he is, thank you.

Shinade, Ratty is and thanks alot.

kat, I don't know how they would be as a pet but they are fun to watch.

C, you may be totally right on that thought :D
