Can I come in?

Posted by
Becky (los angeles, United States) on 15 June 2010 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

This little fellow had no boundaries - no fear.
He was quite content to walk up the stairs to
the front door looking to connect and possibly score a treat.
I half expected him to speak.
Such a sweet energy. So innocent -
...and probably got grounded when he finally returned home.

SURE kiddo...! How on earth did you manage such a fabulous capture Becky? The tones, detail, timing are all outstanding!!!

15 Jun 2010 5:53am

@Pavan Kaul: You're so kind. Actually he was wanting to hang out - so he made it all very easy for me. I would loved to have adopted him. : )

Vinod from Bangalore, India

Wow this is sweet capture.. How you got him so close?

15 Jun 2010 6:01am

@Vinod: He just walked up my front stairs - We have a lot of squirrels in this area, most of them adults. The adults can be pretty friendly AND feisty. This little fellow just thought we should all be friends. Isn't he just a love?

PRASHANT from Mumbai, India

Wow ...Nice friend at your doorstep..lovely capture.

Amazing shot! He looks totally cute. How great you caught that. I just bought netting to keep the squirrels from the tomatoes and fruit trees. :O

15 Jun 2010 5:30pm

@Bettina: the opossums and the squirrels ate every top off of every piece of growing herb and vegetable that I grew last year in the garden. SO - good idea!
