Red Squirrels are very shy and very FAST. These guys can travel at the speed of sound, I swear. But this guy was chomping on his lunch, and sat still for a few seconds for me. If you look closely, you can see pieces of his walnut flying through the air. He was on a mission.
This guy also posed for me.
I guess lunch time might be a good time to capture these tiny critters. They make a rattlesnake-type sound so be on the lookout for them on your next walk in the park.
