On an early morning walk at the Overland Park Arboretum, we encountered this guy chowing down on some nuts under a gazebo along a walking trail.

What do you think?  Do you have a favorite shot below?

Squirrel Photo #1.  Squirrel munching a nut up at the top of the gazebo.

Squirrel Photo #2.  As I inched closer, he scurried a bit further away from me.  With his nut.

Squirrel Photo #3.  And this is what he left behind on the railing…  I’m not sure what kind of nuts these are, but they don’t look quite as tasty as the honey sesame cashews from Trader Joe’s.

  1. I love that you took a shot of what was left behind on the railing. Such an interesting perspective.

    • Oooooooh! Thanks, Victoria! I just kind of stumbled upon it. BTW, I love following your blog. You are a very creative photographer!

      • Well I think it’s a great capture. I think most people wouldn’t have even noticed it, and in many ways it’s more interesting than the photos of the squirrels themselves. And thank you very much, what a wonderful compliment.

  2. Of the two squirrel shots the 2nd is my favorite but I do love the nut shot.

    • Thanks, Edith! Based upon two comments, both in support of the nut shot, I’m sooooo excited that the scene caught my eye and that the photo turned out as it did. Thanks for visiting my site and helping me on my journey to develop my photography!

  3. Not as tasty? I bet that squirrel begs to differ 🙂

    • Fair enough, but it’s also possible that the squirrel would be equally addicted if he had a chance to try the cashews at Trader Joe’s! 🙂


I love hearing from you!
