From the top of the rocks I see him...Numbers 23: 9
This sweet little guy was playing hide and go seek with me today until I started talking softly to him and paced my steps slowly...Tiny Red Squirrels are nervous wildlife creatures who don't like sudden movements from us when we are outside with them...They love to be talked to quietly... especially if you tell them they are cute:) I am sure he understood as he obliged me then by sitting very still to listen to my voice and he knew the right place where he would look the best.
This is not cropped, but I managed to get as close as he would let me with my 55- 200 mm lens..Within seconds of shooting this picture he jumped off the rock and chased a chipmunk away who he didn't want in his territory.... I felt humbled that he allowed me in his kingdom...
Thank you so much Shannon Burch for the kind courtesy of your spotlight!!! I appreciate it.
