20th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Messy Eaters

After saving up a hefty sum of change, I purchased my first proper telephoto lens, and went to a trail down the road. Of course it is a populated trail so I ventured off into the woods where I like to call "Squirrel Haven". The name speaks for itself, I often came here just to watch the odd looking Montanan squirrels come out of their hobbit holes, and got a front row seat to a very messy eater.
