Eastern Gray SquirrelEastern Gray Squirrel – Nikon D70, handheld, f5.6, 1/160, ISO 200, Nikkor 70-300mm VR at 300mm, natural light.

Time got away from me today and I am feeling a little squirrely tonight so I thought what better to post than an Eastern Gray Squirrel?

I realized this afternoon that I have never posted a Eastern Gray Squirrel on my blog before and I don’t even get to see them now. I have seen about 4 Gray Squirrels since I moved to Utah 5 years ago, back east they were everywhere.

I’d say this little fella wasn’t baited especially by me but so many people feed the gray squirrels at Sawgrass Lake Park they scurry towards you whether you have food or not.

I thought this pose was cute and shows my reflection in those deep, dark eyes. The squirrel was probably confused because I didn’t feed him.

Life is good even when it is squirrely.

    It is true about not having to bait them as everyone else does it for me.They are cute and very interesting to watch. Have a great day, squirrely or otherwise!
