15th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Our Petey Posing

Petey is a squirrel my grandfather bonded with when he was a baby. He named him Petey. After my grandfather died a few years ago, we continued feeding Petey & his family, but as my mom and I recently found out Petey is a girl. I had just given Petey her nuts for the night and after she ate, she stood up and it looked like she was posing. I grabbed my camera and did a squirrel photo shoot.
