Happy Squirrel Appreciation Day!

Laura Peters Animals, Squirrels

My Dad just told me…today is Squirrel Appreciation Day! And because I’m such a fan of these little scavengers, I thought I would share some of my favorite personal encounters with squirrels.

My favorite story is when I was taking a golf ball around the city of Chicago for photos and the squirrels were adventurous enough to come up to the golf ball and play with me! We pushed the ball back and forth. I wish there had been a videographer with me on that day. Happy Sciuridae!

Right before he leapt onto the bird feeder…

Cautiously approaching my golf ball…determined it wasn’t food and pushed it away!

Thought he might jump on my shoulder.
