Shortly after I took this photo, it went “viral”:
I had fun taking this photo. I sat on the ground and waited for squirrels to come by. When a squirrel would come near, I would hold my camera almost on the ground in one hand and have a peanut ready in the other hand. I tilted the camera’s viewscreen upward so I could see it at least somewhat, and I pre-focused the camera to a fairly short distance (manual focus rather than autofocus). When the squirrel was at about the right distance, I would toss the peanut its way and take a quick burst of photos. I missed lots and lots of shots that I tried for: many were way out of focus, lots didn’t even have the squirrel in them because squirrels do move, and so on. But I’m happy with how this one turned out!
