On the boundary of our Railyard park this Mama squirrel with tits hanging down heavy enjoyed an apple as we approached. Mama froze with a big piece of apple stuck in her mouth and did not dare move until we passed on, due to the presence of my two pups, who never noticed her up above their noses. I admit, I took my sweet time to take a whole set of pictures.
I seen probably this very same squirrel in the very same spot eating apple a few days earlier and I also noticed new tiny and very cute baby ground squirrels nearby on and around the red rocks. It always strikes me as very odd how these pesky critters evoke no aversion from me, while admittedly rats and mice still do.
