French Fry

A small red squirrel eating a french fry.

I somehow never got around to posting this photo -- probably because I took it before I started this photo blog. Anyhow, better late than never: behold the mighty french-fry eating squirrel!

The story behind this photo: every time I visit the rest stop along the Seney Stretch, I notice a family of red squirrels which live there, getting fat off of the generosity of strangers (that is, the fast food left in the outdoor trash cans). One time I planned ahead, had my long lens with me, and managed to get this cute shot of one of the squirrels enjoying a nice frozen french fry. I also got a (less good) shot of a squirrel eating a cheeseburger!

So very, very cute, and yet somehow sad. The squirrel snarfing the cheeseburger did look a little chubby;-)
