A Cute Little Red Squirrel
She was laying under the bench right beside the trail that leads to the nature center of this park. It has a lot of human traffic that she didn't mind one bit. She came right up to me more than a few times, begging for food. I don't carry animal food with me, but many other people do. She had plenty.
She had the perfect spot that day. She could watch everything that happened, while still having a convenient escape route into the trees. And the bench provided plenty of shade for this cute little critter. So even though I've already revealed her location, let me give you some better details about it.
I didn't want the game to be as hard as it was, but if I would have shown a better picture the game would have been too easy. And too easy is a lot less fun than too hard. So I guess this is the way it had to be. Just so you know, I marked the spot where she is hiding with a red rectangle. You can expand the picture above to see her a little more clearly.
I actually left to visit the nature center, and a few other things. And when I came back, she was still right there hiding under her bench. I guess she knows exactly where to be to get the food. It was fun watching her eat those seeds, but I don't make it a practice to give food to park animals. You should only feed animals if you can consistently do it.
Get ready, here comes the best part.
Don't worry. Even though this post is coming to an end, questions will be answered, problems will be solved.
So tune in tomorrow. The story of this little cat squirrel will be continued...
