The Unbearable Cuteness of Being
I was looking through some old folders of images that I hadn’t browsed recently and came across this series I took back in July of 2006. A California Ground Squirrel (Otospermophilus beecheyi) raised her young under a little wooden bridge behind our cabin that year and I had the fun of seeing the whole family out together on several occasions. I’m not sure where the mother was on this day, but her spectacled brood sure was adorable as they cautiously ran in and out of their burrow.
I know at least one of my friends is keeping tabs on a couple of nests around his place and getting some nice shots of baby birds …
