Watching Closely

Watching Closely

As I arrive at Mugs coffeehouse there are about six large trees along the sidewalk. Some of the college students who live along here will put food out for the squirrels. I have seen as many as 4 and 5 chasing each other around the trees making it fun to watch. Needless to say they are more than comfortable with humans and will come quite close. This one paused long enough to make sure I kept my distance and did not cross the line they had drawn.

He is part of nature. He stares at me trying to determine if I’m a  predator or abserver, a danger or not. However, I do smile as it doesn’t look like he’s that worried about eating. 🙂

I looked back through them and found some I really like. I added a few images to my gallery that you can find here. I enjoyed the above image depicting the enjoyment of a child meeting nature up close and personal and I chose the the following image as it shows and adult enjoying the nature. Continue reading »
