During the morning and evening hours, most of the creatures are usually busy finding their food. It was a bit of a cloudy afternoon, when I saw several squirrels moving across the green grass, playing and eating.

I located myself in a perfect place, expecting another good day of squirrel photography (which I had been trying for months). I was lucky to photograph this smart-looking individual, standing on its hind legs, nibbling a grass seedhead, thinking to itself 'this tastes yummy'. Finally, I had captured the shot I wanted.
