The squirrel from hell

A man was feeding this squirrel the other day in the park, and some others were taking photos. I joined in.  From my angle he appeared a bit dark, so I used the flash....with this result. I was going to correct the squirrel's hellish eyes, but then I remembered this post.

Gray bristly tail and ears
Nuts over nuts he chatters
My friend the squirrel

Well, I've always thought of squirrels as devious little rascals. Not that hard to substitute demonic for devious!

That is one fabulous photo. I wouldn't stand right under that tree.

Interesting to see tassel-eared squirrels in your part of the world. Haven't seen ours look so devilish.

Ha! A perfect shot!

Didn't take much to turn him from darling to demonic, did it? On another subject altogether, did you celebrate Mother's Day yesterday—or is it on a different day there?
