18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Squirrel with a peanut

I was in the park in Staunton Virginia, and this squirrel walked right up to me like he wanted something. I looked around and found a peanut and tossed to him. He took it and hung around me long enough to take several different photos. I guess the squirrels are used to going up to people for peanuts.
