Rendezvouz with a Fur Ball

I chanced upon this playful guy @ the gardens of  Mission San Jose in San Antonio, Texas. I was busy admiring, and taking photos of  the breath-taking period architecture, I  lowered my camera to give my arm a rest, and out of the blue a hairball jumped in front of me. We locked gaze and I slowly raised my camera to position, doing as little as possible to startle the fur ball! After a shot or two, Mr Squirrel got busy with his acorns and as quickly, forgot about our rendezvous! How cute!

This guy is a frequent visitor in my backyard. I have lots of photos of them but not as gorgeous as yours. Hope I will get a chance someday.

Tes, you caught him so well ( I
guess it's a him; I'm not expert on squirrel gender ) - and got a perfect shot! He held so still. When Jo and I were at the Botannical Gardens, they were running in such a frenzy, I could never get a really good photo!
