Here's something that I saw earlier, thought it was cute so I'll share it with you guys:


My husband and I were exploring Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park-Canada when we stopped for a timed picture of the two of us. We had our camera set up on some rocks and were getting ready to take the picture when this curious little ground squirrel appeared, became intriqued with the sound of the focusing camera and popped right into our shot! A once in a lifetime moment! We were laughing about this little guy for days!!

No, I just saw it linked somewhere else and liked it so I posted it here. It's from a 'send in your pictures' section of the website.

I heard about this on the radio. The place where the photo was taken has changed it's ad campaign to something along the lines of "he's waiting for you" using the squirrel as a device and he doesn't even get paid!

Ha, can't recall where I saw this, but it's become quite the meme around the internet. Good to know it isn't just some stupid internet thing! I find this picture to be beautiful.

EDIT: Because I can.

Thats a pretty sweet picture. If the park didn't make their trip I bet that did.
