Squirrel

99/365 | April 9, 2010

 

When I left work today, I found this squirrel eating from a pile of corn and sunflower seeds that someone had put in the lawn. I took pictures with both the 150mm and 35mm and was amazed at how close he let me get. With the 35mm, I was able to get about 6" from him.

 

When I was in high school, my family was part of a wildlife rehabilitation group up in Butte County. Out of all the different types of animals we helped, squirrels were one of my favorite. We would get them when they were very small and raise them and eventually release them. I'll never forget all of those wonderful experiences.
