Sharing moments in time…

Yikes!


Last week I posted a close-up straight up the beak view of a roadrunner – assisted by the bird itself who seemed like he wanted to attack my camera.  This week another “face-off” – this time with a beach ground squirrel who didn’t seem to want to look at anything but me taking his picture.  I know some people don’t care for photos of these common little creatures but I couldn’t resist posting this one!

"Look into my eyes....you're getting sleepy....

    • Thanks Jacqueline. He was definitely transfixed. I’m not sure who was leading the staring contest – he or I…..

  2. That’s an awesome picture – he seems to have been a very cooperative model! Either that, or he was indeed trying to hypnotize you!
