Silly Squirrel Picture of the Day

15Aug09

This picture was submitted to National Geographic YOUR SHOT contest with the following caption:

My husband and I were exploring Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park-Canada when we stopped for a timed picture of the two of us. We had our camera set up on some rocks and were getting ready to take the picture when this curious little ground squirrel appeared, became intriqued with the sound of the focusing camera and popped right into our shot! A once in a lifetime moment! We were laughing about this little guy for days!!

Awww, how cute.  I sometimes have little animals pop up in my life too.  Like this one time, I was at the La Cienega park, and this one big male pigeon tried having sex with a female pigeon, but she apparently wasn’t in the mood.  She instead came over closer to where I was and started picking her fleas and eating them.  And then the male came back to her and tried having sex with her again with no avail.  Again.  She apparently was far more interested in feasting on her fleas.   So yea… I guess that’s kinda like the squirrel thing.  Except I didn’t take pictures of this awesomeness and got pretty nauseous from watching the pigeon get really full from the flea-eating.
