Your Sunday Squirrel

I was getting a little alarmed, because in all my visits to Denny Park I wasn't seeing any squirrels. Well, one day this week I saw at least eight of them running around, so I'm not worried any more. Like this fellow above, most of them were quite young. You can tell because his tail is not particularly bushy. Usually, little squirrels are very skittish. If they see a human, they dash for the nearest tree. It doesn't matter if that human is tossing a peanut at them or not. They just instantly panic. This guy didn't do that. He waited patiently while I took pictures and then posed with his peanut. I wish his tail much bushiness in the future.
