|Squirrel Prepares to Hide|
Sure enough. As I began to cautiously approach the squirrel, he became nervous. You can see him preparing to hide. As I suspected, he disappeared into his hole in the stump.
|Squirrel Can't Resist a Peek to See If I'm Still There|
But I kept watching. Sure enough. Soon I saw his head sticking out again to see if the coast was clear. He decided it wasn't when he saw me, and then he disappeared for good -- or for as long as I was there.
|Looks Like He's Gone for As Long As I'm Here|
After he made his final dive into his hole. I came by to see what I could see inside. Not much. It was too dark.
If you ever visit Mission San Miguel, if you enter at the west entrance, look to your left for the stump. Many you will see this fellow, too.
Looks like you had a fun time watching this little fella :)ReplyDelete
Marie, I certainly did. I think he was watching me, too.Delete
What a great encounter! I love those two middle shots - esp. the peeking out one fantastic!!ReplyDelete
Also, thanks for the mention in your related articles :)
It was so much fun taking that shot of his head peeking out. As to related articles, I use as many relevant ones as possible from those whose blogs I follow.Delete
I saw beautiful squirrels with fluffy tails in Washington DC. I wonder if the squirrels in your area also have rich floppy tails? In the Philippines the tails aren't half as nice which is sad, as that's their cuteness factor.ReplyDelete
The ground squirrels' tails aren't as fluffy as the tree squirrels.ReplyDelete
