Walk in the Park: Squirrels

by Shane Coleman March. 28, 2018 565 views

I found these little guys near the picnic area... imagine that. There were a few of them, scurrying around, looking for something to eat. I learned squirrels are as difficult as birds to get a photo of. I was able to get within a reasonable distance but my main issue was they never stopped. They moved so quick, it was difficult to keep up. This, along with the bright sunlight / dark shadow situation, made for quite a challenge.

The squirrel in the third photo creeped me out. I think he was in attack mode. He wanted to jump off the tree and latch onto my throat with his teeth. His look says it all... “leave me the hell alone and quit taking pictures!”

If only I could hear his thoughts.

If only I could hear his thoughts.

Never in a attacking mode! Take two nuts and make a clacking sound with them. The squirrel will after a while come to you and ask very greedy for the nut! They are driven by stomach not by brain ... https://www.photoblog.com/strohschneider-laue/2017/09/02/greedy-gold-diggers/

Oh my, you definitely had them eating out of your hand. Maybe I’ll try it next time. 

I still think they have a sinister look. I feel more comfortable with the alligators. 😂
