A fox squirrel peers out from its hiding place. Taken in Denver, Colorado, USA.
“Please, sir, might you spare a nut?” This squirrel in an urban Denver park today was pretty clearly used to getting scraps from people. It stayed close to me and every time I crouched down to take a picture, it would run right up to me.
A very brave – or very dumb – squirrel in northern Colorado this past Saturday. 😉 This male bald eagle seemed quite amazed that a squirrel would dare to come quite close to it. Surprisingly enough, the eagle did nothing and simply watched the rodent as it walked around the tree.
This curious squirrel didn’t mind me one bit as it busily gathered up nuts – and snacked on a few as it did. Taken last month in Longmont, Colorado.
This squirrel didn’t mind me shoving a camera in its face as it was enjoying breakfast in Longmont, Colorado this morning.
I spent the weekend in the Colorado mountains but found little of interest in the way of wildlife other than this little guy. I think he was expecting a handout so was more than willing to stay low in the tree and let me take pictures.
