Weekly Photo Challenge: Extra, Extra


My entry to the week’s photo challenge.  As we were taking a break from hiking the Kaibob trail in the Grand Canyon a few weeks back, I started to take a photo of a common rock squirrel – then I noticed that I could also see a mule train coming up the distant trail below.  By changing my angle a little bit and zooming in, it became (in my mind at least) a photo of the notorious Outlaw Squirrel observing the wagon train below and getting ready for the ambush – a scene played out in countless western movies – though not necessarily by squirrels.  Hope you enjoy – “the Ambush”.

Shouldn't he be wearing a black hat?

On the other hand this could just be one of those NSA surveillance squirrels….
