File Under

Over the past year, I've befriended a neighborhood squirrel named Chico. He shows up in our backyard at least once a week and flicks his tail around wildly as he waits for me to bring him a handful of nuts or seeds. He comes right up to me and eats directly from my hand. Taken with a Canon 70D DSLR and Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II lens.
