We had lunch with this cutie pictured above. :D My husband and I went to the lake to eat lunch and while we we're eating I was taking pictures of the wildlife. I spotted this pretty girl climbing down a tree and started taking pictures.
However she was clearly watching us!
She stretched out and was resting, so I started looking around for more wildlife. When I finally looked to see what she was doing I realized she was gone. I looked around and finally spotted her in a tree that was even closer, peeking around at us (wish that photo had turned out!).
. . . and then out of the blue she started trotting toward us!
You totally have to check out the video to see what happened next!!
Can you believe how brave she was?? My guess is that she's been fed before by visitors to the park. That's the closest I've ever been to a wild squirrel. She was so cute! :D Here are some more pictures.
She's so beautiful! I think she's a Fox Squirrel.
Where I grew up we only had Gray Squirrels so it was cool to see her.
So that was the coolest thing to happen to me in a while! :D Sooooo glad I had my camera with me. I've learned to never go to the park/lake without it lol.
