With the mountains so close, Salt Lake City has a lot of wildlife. Once, while waiting for a lightrail train to pass, a beautiful, four-point buck came bounding down the tracks ahead of the train. My sister is constantly battling to keep her plants and trees alive from all of the deer that make their way down to her yard during winter and early spring. Usually, chipmucks and potguts stay in the mountains, but we do get frequent squirrel sitings. This guy made his presence known during a wedding shoot at a popular photography site near downtown Salt Lake. He was so obliging to pose that I couldn’t resist taking his photo.

What a fun photo and topic for this week.
my funny faced duck: http://lessywannagohome.blogspot.com/2020/07/muscovy-duck.html
The way he clings to the tree trunk!
Their feet are amazing! I wish I could grip like that.
There were lots of squirrels in Illinois, but I’ve only seen a few here in Arizona at least where we are. They’re so cute…unless stealing birdseed or chewing on something that’s not meant to be chewed. 🙂
Yes here we have several types but the all love my feeders…ugh
Squirrels are so quick here, could never get a shot.. 😉
I think he’s a bit domesticated. The grounds are a very popular church and park. There’s a pond that has a resident duck, too.
After considering going with Red Deer and then a Striped Skunk I decided to go with a Squirrel!
LOL! Great shot!
Love your happy squirrel! Here’s my post on the Bison of Yellowstone. https://catsandtrailsandgardentales.com/2020/07/03/bison-wild-symbol-of-the-american-west/

A selection of squirrels, love the way the squirrel on your picture is just looking.
My Dad always said you had to have “quick eyes” for wildlife sightings. I’m glad this little guy stayed put long enough for me to get him on record! https://maximizingluxurytravel.com/2020/07/07/a-photo-a-week-challenge-bear/
