The Pulitzer within his tiny grasp...

Sara the moth set the lens then the stage was set. It was time for Barley to take his shot. The Pulitzer depended on his accuracy. He was not going to lose it to Boris again this year, that bastard Chipmunk.

Steady! he said to himself—steady!!! he waited until the deer and rabbit touched noses and—CLICK!


Thank you, Scott J. and The fabulous Photographing Squirrels series!

how does a person even come up with this?

how did he lure all those squirrels over to his camera?

Most importantly, WHY?!?

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 06:44 PM


I love you squeee-rail!

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 06:47 PM

Simply cheeky!!

thanks for also posting the link to the A-C-O-R-N photostream!!

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 06:47 PM

Those squirrels are especially fat & red & CUTE!!!!

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 06:57 PM

I'm interested in HOW!?!?! Gotta love kawaii squirels

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 07:02 PM

Oh man, that seriously reminds me of the photographer that did photos of a chipmunk that made it look like it was doing things like playing the piano, selling ice cream, etc.

Nice coat! Must have a great diet full of luring-squirrels-to-cameras snacks--So fluffy and happy looking :)

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 07:07 PM

woo-hoo! I knew this had to make it onto CO ;)

Some of the squirrels around my place are black with red tails - very interesting look. I think I remember seeing a grey one with a red tail once too. Local inbreeding, I guess... lol

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 07:13 PM

Now that's just silly!


 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 07:13 PM

AAAHHHH!! SO CUTE! ::keels over::

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 07:15 PM

"Paris! Paris! Over here! Who are you wearing tonight?!?"

so yesterday I was walking and thies SQUIRREL was stalking me, taking pictures. True story- i swear it. Heck i've got the pics to prove it



 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 07:42 PM

This is laugh-out-loud funny, and so are the rest of the pics on Squirrel 400's photostream. I'd *love* to know where they got all these weird cameras!

The squirrel is sooo cute it looks fake. i agree with chunkstyle.

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 07:55 PM

Next thing you know he'll be making video installations of slo-mo acorn collection! Or better yet, I'd love to see a movie this little guy makes! A documentary about how Boris has been stealing acorns from the squirrel community.

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 07:59 PM

Oh the tail - I've never petted a squirrel, but I sure want to pet his fuzzy tail!

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 08:06 PM

That is the greatest photo ever.

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 08:50 PM

Thats awesome! Check out the links in the caption. There's a Flicker page with a whole bunch of these. Great!

Moving on the floor now babe
You're a Squirrel of Paradise...

Mel, Squirrels on Film! Ha ha! I Lovvit! Even if you are mixing 'Rio' with 'GOF'. It works. What an unexpected place for a Duran reference. Clever.

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 09:24 PM

Peanut butter I swear, is the secret weapon to taking pictures of squirrels. It also helps if you wear the special peanut cologne I made. It also comes with a squirrel-removal stick.

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 09:39 PM

But "Sarah the moth" gave me the jeepers...! *shiver* Like a creature from a nightmare; gah...

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 10:00 PM

haha, that entire photostream is insane!

 |  Jun 01, 2006 at 11:09 PM

Excellent photos - there's a squirrel with a Pentax who's got Skwirrily pantaloons on. Yay for fluffy pantaloons!

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 04:53 AM

I find squirrels evil.

An exceptionally nasty, fat black Canadian squirrel threatened me specifically some years back-- AND I DON'T MEAN TO BE RACIST, BELIEVE ME; ALL THE SQUIRRELS IN TORONTO ARE BLACK, MUCH TO MY AESTHETIC DELIGHT-- and I've never recovered.

Keep the fuzzy bastards away from me, I say.

oh but our black skwerls are cute :(

and they're not *all* black--some are the regular gray--and apparently there's a colony of white ones somewhere near St. Michael's hospital...

No, you must love the black squirrels. Yes, love them all. Let their bushy tails hypnotize you... @_@

I loved the squirrel with Boyd...Boyd was way funny...I laughed and laughed and so on.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 07:40 AM

it's true - toronto's got grey and black squirrels, and apparently albino ones somewhere now too. they're cute, if a little psycho. i stopped to look at one in queen's park and it did a full circle around me, like it was herding me. a little creepy, but overall cute.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 08:35 AM

I once had a baby one come up onto my porch and smell my toes. He was incredibly persistent in coming after me, even though I kept moving because I thought he might bite. I finally stood up on a chair and he "propped" up to see if he could still get me. I don't know what he wanted.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 08:53 AM

A Thinker...maybe he smelled corn chips? :::wink:::

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 10:26 AM

What I want to know is if any of the squirrels ended up pressing the shutter button and if there are any pictures *taken* by squirrels. It would open up new insights to the artistic sensibilities of other mammals.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:30 AM

A Thinker - Feet...corn chips...sometimes they smell the same? Sorry...it was a lame joke, anyway...hehe :)

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:47 AM

It's a Rufus thing.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:50 AM

ooh, sorry. me no comprehende. does not mean joke is not funny.

A thinker
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 11:57 AM

it's a funny story, and i bet the skwerl was begging for food...

E. Collison
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:06 PM

E.C.--I don't know. It kind of seemed more like he wanted to play. Or he was so young he just didn't know to be afraid of humans. He had *me* afraid of *him*, instead!

A thinker
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:12 PM

Loving the variety - there has been acorn-ucopia of cuteness lately.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:15 PM

city skwerls do beg, but i believe you. perhaps he was rabid....!

E. Collison
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 12:16 PM

I thought that, too. Didn't want to take any chances, so stayed away--though he *was* awfully cute :)

The boyfriend had to have the phone people over, to repair his 'lectrical lines. Diagnosis: squirrelies chewed them all the way through!

But we still love the squirrelies.

Mother hates them. But having seen this picture, how could anyone 'shutter' at the sight of them?

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 02:02 PM

groooooan. aubrey, the queen of puns today!

A thinker
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 02:10 PM

"hough he *was* awfully cute :)"

I'm sure, but that unafraid usually means trouble...

Aubrey, you've outdone yourself.

E. Collison
 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 02:17 PM

Erhem - I meant that "being unafraid like that" spells trouble.

Can't think, can't write - that's what happens when you spend hours on the line trying to get your cell phone reprogrammed.

 |  Jun 02, 2006 at 02:18 PM

Yeah, squirrels are cute, as long as they aren't in my garden.
