Such a Cute Little Critter

 

When I was on my walk last Sunday, I spotted this cute little antelope squirrel who was sitting on top of a rock and eating the fruit of a barrel cactus.  In fact, this little fellow was attracting quite a group of observers.  I saw quite a few people snapping photos of him as he munched away oblivious to the attention focused on him.



After he had finished his tasty snack and his admirers had moved along, he set out to find something else to eat.  He nimbly climbed up on the thorns of the cactus avoiding the sharp points.  


When he got to the top, he turned around and looked right at me and struck a very nice pose!

What a cutie. He was hoping you were impressed with his maneuvers on the spikes. :)

That last pic is a gem! I have mixed feelings about squirrels, as you know, but their dexterity is truly impressive.

Once again you have educated me. I would have thought that was a chipmunk but Google has convinced me there is a difference between it and the antelope squirrel.
