“Outside my office window in Hamburg, Germany I’m frequently visited by a little red squirrel. I was very surprised when the little guy stopped by & started making faces at me. I snapped a few pictures before Gene Simmons (named for obvious reasons) went about his business and left.” -Hendrik B.
Let’s check in with our favorite nutologist, Cheeky McStufferkins in Acornucopia, USA, shall we?
“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.

“Hi, here are some photos I took of the squirrels gettin’ my pumpkin!”
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.”

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!

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.)
