One of my friends (Thanks, Yosuf!) saw this little guy on his way through Union Square Park the other day after class, and thought of me! So naturally, he took pictures.
I think that this lovely little fellow could be a model for a special squirrel-themed series of animal crackers. He just had to come right up and say hello! How cute is he with that spot of dirt on his nose from digging through the dirt? NYC squirrels are so silly- and friendly!
