I am sure there are some people who do not share my deep, abiding love of squirrels, and while it is difficult for me to comprehend, I do not want anyone to feel left out, so if you don’t like squirrels, watch this video while I wax lyrical about the squirrels I encountered last weekend:
Not all squirrels are equal. Just like humans, some squirrels are positively bursting with charisma, and last weekend on Staten Island I met quite possibly the most charismatic squirrel ever. To sidetrack briefly, I read somewhere that in order to take a good photograph of an animal you should try to get inside the head of the animal. Or maybe I made that up. Anyway, here’s a picture I took of what a tree must look like to a squirrel:
Now I hate to play favourites, so before I show you the squirrel who stole my heart, let me show you a couple of photos of other squirrels I captured in action that day:
Terribly cute, I’m sure you’ll agree, unless you’re still busy watching the video above. But then I looked up and saw Mr Charisma.
If you’re still in the mood for more squirrel-related entertainment after all those pictures, I recommend checking out the now famous crasher squirrel here.
