“We saw this squirrel when we were walking my dog through the woods. For five minutes she just stared at my dog then after a few photos I said thank you and she ran off like she knew her photo was being taken and I was done!! One smart squirrel right there!!” -Kate S.

There’s also a pretty good tocks-shot in there, as well as one of my cats Mr. Pants and Oscar J. Computer hoping to murder this squirrel, and the squirrel who is completely unfazed.”

Caught In The Act

Animuhls (like kids) can do the darndest things. Sometimes, if you’re a great photographer (like these folks as seen on My Modern Met) you can get a terrific shot by just being in the right place at the right time. Talent and a great camera helps, of course!

These were a part of The Mammal Society’s Photographer of the Year competition earlier this year. (The 2014 competition is now open.) Individual photo creditos in the hovers.

Sqwerl ResQte In Colorado

We’ve all read about the bad flooding in Colorado. It’s taken a terrible toll on hoomins as well as Colorado’s Critters. People are helping out these little guys by taking them in for emergency care- let’s go to the videotape with 9News.com. (Hover over first image to play the video, it’s one of those weird Shockwave clips.)

Stay Safe, Yosemite Friends

Yosemite National Park is enduring one of the worst fires in California history, and we hope it gets contained VERY soon. This little guy is park resident Chip McMunkster, and he’s found something tasty.

Meanwhile, this sqwerl (let’s call him Sam- Yosemite Sam, geddit?) is stocking up on paper napkins…just in case he needs them.
