Squirrel surprise

August 16, 2009 at 2:00 am 2 comments

I thought I’d take time out today to bring you the funniest photo I’ve seen in ages. And it features the cutest looking squirrel. So a couple were having fun at Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park, Canada and thought they’d take a holiday shot with the stunning lake as a backdrop. They set the timer on the camera, which was set up on some rocks, and made themselves camera ready….when…all of a sudden, up pops a ground squirrel. The squirrel was curious about the sound the camera was making and voila…the funniest photo:

If you ask me, that squirrel was just waiting for a camera to snap him – he looks very well groomed! What a fun shot to start our week.

UPDATE: As this squirrel is now the most famous in the world, you might want to have your photo taken with him (or her). Go here – to The Squirrelizer.

    A suspect story if ever I saw one. A mountain myth I’d say.

    The squirrel is in perfect focus.

    But the people, the main purpose of the photo, or so we are lead to believe, are out of focus.

    Hey Irene
    I think that squirrel is a pretty smart dude..he spotted the camera, changed the focus so he could get good depth of field. Damn, those Canadian squirrels are smart 🙂
