This morning I had the opportunity to meet this fabulous young lady for a photo shoot back behind the poplar tree. She wanted me to tell you that squirrels are really not all that bad. They have a soft, sensitive side – just like you and me. So in an effort to portray their inner “enjoying nature and foraging for food and shelter like the rest of us” beauty, she asked me to share with you these wonderful shots from her own personal portrait session.
I really have to applaud her for these shots. They’re personal and revealing, they tell a story about how sensitive and playful a squirrels’ personality can be. I’d be surprised if your heart doesn’t just melt. You’ll never see a squirrel the same way again. Maybe.
Casual, down to earth. Relaxed squirrel.
Submissive, vulnerable squirrel.
Playful yet serious squirrel.
Demure, mature, sophisticated squirrel with a soft side.
(this one is her favorite)
I’m currently scheduling squirrel portrait photo shoot appointments for late summer; my calendar is booked solid with my own wildlife until then.
