Checking to see if the coast is clear

We startled this little squirrel as it was searching for food at the base of a tree in a state park.  It frantically scampered up the tree trunk and hid on the other side.  As we continued walking, I looked back and caught it peeking out to see if the coast was all clear.

“When I die of heart failure the next time you frighten me like that, you can put that on my gravestone — ‘I didn’t mean to startle her.'”  ~Patricia Briggs
