Squirrels Love Peanuts

Snacktime for little squirrel - Click photo for larger version

We got another snow storm on Friday, but yesterday brought a beautiful, blue sky as a canopy over the white landscape. My son and daughter-in-law put some peanuts out for the blue jays and squirrels, and this little guy was ready to make a meal of them. I like this shot, because not only is the squirrel's fur and bushy tail clearly in focus, but I managed to get the depth of field narrow enough to blur the background and keep the focus on the subject. There is an entire family of these little creatures that come out to eat, and they are much fun to observe.
