Squirrel Love

Here's where to find out about Camera Critters, which takes place every Sunday.

She's got squirrels again.
I used to think these little guys who burrow in the fields around here were woodchucks, but they are a variety of ground squirrel and don't really bear much resemblance to those big groundhog sized rodents. This was my fifth or sixth attempt to get a picture of one Wednesday morning, and I think it came out awfully sweet. And of course, once I got my shot, I quit bothering them, so they were happy, too.

This is great Katney. And thank you for all your words of comfort over at mine.

I am thinking of joining in on odd shots. How good a photographer do I have to be to join in? What are the rules and is there a compulsion to post every week?

Thanks. It's just I have some odd ones and thought of posting but then thought I could reach a wider audience for critique and advice this way. What do you think?

The caption should be:

Let's give her the money shot and maybe she'll go away

I've never seen a woodchuck or a groundhog.

Looking forward to your Odd Shots post - your Photo Hunt Time post was superb and no, I didn't recognise the dark shape as being the flag, but I wondered what it was!

Too cute !! I think I have never seen such squirrels.
I know about Picasa etc. my quota is full and I should buy space. But I found another solution, I made a blog with Mr. Gattino's email address, upload the pictures there and just copy and paste on my blog, or I use Photobucket.

What a nice shot; your perseverance paid off. Dear little creatures.

Sosunaolata said...

Those guys are very cute! They definitely don't resemble the squirrels I have in my neighborhood. I never knew that ground squirrels existed.

There's a lot of Belding Ground Squirrels in central Oregon. I've seen a few on my walk-about photo safaris. They are cute critters, but can a nuisance. Nice shot.
