Photo Essay

The Quirky Little Squirrels I met

Squirrel Series #10

Living in Michigan we have many different squirrels. They come in a whole array of colors from grey, red and black. Many people consider them pests because they are so clever not many bird feeders can keep them out. Since making them a main subject of my photo's I noticed that they are really wonderful creatures that are packed full of personality. They can be shy and skittish. But some of them really just want to be your friend. They have a slight distrust of the camera but and soon as they see you have a pocket full of peanuts ahhhh they become the best models you could hope for !
