This Guy Scared The Crap Out Of Me...

Early this evening, I was sitting on the beach at the cottage. I was holding my camera, and peacefully staring out over the water, when I heard a bunch of noise behind me. I turned around and saw this little guy on the side of a tree trunk. I screwed up a bunch of these at first. I was so excited that I didn't realize my shutter was too slow and I took a bunch of blurry photos (without checking the display after the first couple of shots). Eventually, the squirrel went up into the tree, and I couldn't see him anymore. Disappointed, I sat back down and stared out at the lake. Then I heard the noise again. He had come back down! This time I raised the camera's ISO value and kept it in Av mode. The squirrel was so patient, and let me get really close to him.

I may or may not try to pretty some of these up in Lightroom.
