My friend Danny and I were out taking pictures one day and as we walked through Lincoln Park we realized the squirrels in the area were quite fearless. When I stopped to get a closer look, they would assume I had food to give them and would also lean in for a closer look.
Oddly enough, that’s also the case with squirrels in my backyard. The woman who lived here before us would feed the squirrels and birds twice a day with an enormous bucket of seeds. As a result, we have a lot of birds and such hanging out around our house, and when Alisha and I have a picnic in the backyard, we have quite the audience joining us. It’s cute as much as it’s annoying.
