Baby Squirrel helped by a man – Spring Vignette

The first beginnings of spring had me out with my camera in the hood two years ago. When I saw this man helping a baby squirrel that seemed injured, I couldn’t resist taking pictures. I have some qualms about photos of people without permission. The moment would be gone. It was too tender to pass up.

There should be a fourth frame of when the baby squirrel lets out a long string of  expletives in squirrel, which was unbelievable to hear, as the baby looked at the man and made it known that she was very upset. It seemed she had fallen from the nest. It would have made a great video!

Spring will be here sometime. Meanwhile the forecast predicts snow mixed with rain for this week.

Have a great week wherever you are.

Thanks for stopping by my kitchen!

    Oh what a precious moment caught on camera!

  2. Was the baby squirrel okay? Did the mom rescue her?

      The baby squirrel seemed to be really mad! Complaining to the man… but I went on my walk and when I returned, no squirrel to be seen. It was old enough to return to the nest on it’s own.
