If you know me, you know I am an animal lover. Squirrels are no exception to that. They are actually one of my favorite wild animals. Squirrels are so full of character and have a very funny nature about them.
One of the funniest things that I have noticed squirrels doing is freezing the moment they see anyone come near. When they freeze they seem to go into a model like pose until they feel that you are way to close. At that point they let out a high pitch “terrifying” squeek until you go away.
Of course, their scare tactics don’t intimidate me much so while this little guy was freaking out at me I was shooting at him – with my camera of course. I could never hurt such a cute critter!
