Just Call Me Squirrel Head

Anyone that has followed my Photoblog for any length of time can tell you I'm a sucker for small furry things. Yesterday I had the pleasure of photographing Squeeckers. Squeeckers is an orphaned Western Gray Squirrel that was raised by the Rogers family. Squeeckers has been released back in the wild but she still likes people as she has lost her natural fear of them. As a result she will allow you to get very close to her. In my case she got very,very close. She was on a fence and as I leaned forward to get a close up image of her she jumped off the fence onto my head. I was really startled and then started laughing where upon she jumped back to the fence breaking our close bond. It was an unforgettable experience. Let me know what you think of Squeeckers by leaving me some feedback in the comment section below.

God's love and blessings to all,


  1. dear chris, thanks so much for the awesome photos. She's one photogenic squirrel! especially love the super close up... and thanks to you for being so mellow about the "kujo(squeakers)jumping on your head" incident. the mail lady was MUCH LESS understanding when kujo sneaked up behind her one day and climbed her leg looking for a nut.

  2. Cynda, I think that is hilarious. Though I'm sure the mail lady didn't think so. I'm a little more understanding as I love animals and I had my share of incidents with all kinds of critters over the years so a squirrel on the head isn't so bad.

    Hope, The he is a she ;) and she is a little rascal.
