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.

I wonder what kind of squirrel you have down there Rebecca? We have the Douglas squirrel.
This is a fox squirrel. They have long, bushy tails. They are what we see at Reelfoot State Park.
over near Tiptonville?
Hello, Rebecca! What a cute shot! And I enjoyed the quote very much.
