Look a Squirrel! …When People Joke About A.D.H.D.

ADHD Look a Squirrel GetNutMeggedOkay, guys, I’ve been busy creating social media accounts for the blog and I wanted a picture that could kind of stand by itself, without having to have an actual blog post…and I came up with this.

I was hiking with a friend a few months ago, just as the leaves were changing colors.  I had my camera with me because nature is awesome and leaves (changing colors, especially) are amazing.  In just over an hour’s time, I took 163 pictures.  Truth is, I’m kind of obsessed with photography and being outside.

After a while, the trail started getting crowded, which I totally hate.  I like the solitude of hiking and having other people on “my trail” stresses me out.  So, I was wrapping up the picture taking because I was ready to be away from all the people.

Anyway, I was in total book-it-and-get-the-hell-out mode when we came across this squirrel.  He was just sitting there, hangin’ out, eating a nut.  Just like a squirrel…so stereotypical, right?

Intrigued by the noshing squirrel, I started snapping away with my camera.  I crept closer…a little afraid he might lunge psychotically from the tree and latch his tiny claws into my face.

But he didn’t.  He let us get so close; it was pretty cool.  I spent quite a few minutes completely absorbed by this squirrel and all his awesomeness.  I tried to break away a few times, but then he’d do something cute.  My friend and I joked that I was being so typically A.D.H.D., “Oh, look!  A Squirrel!”  But, seriously, guys, they are pretty awesome.

It’s not just my A.D.H.D., you know this squirrel is awesome.

And just to be clear, I did take pictures of the awesome view and other stuff, too, but I didn’t want to bombard you guys with a million different pictures (I’ll save that for another post).

  1. I was doing so well today and then a squirrel!!! Gee thanks… ;)
    Beautiful pictures. We used to have a black squirrel that lived by our house and he was a sort of family member as he would eat the walnuts from out walnut tree on our deck. He was hit by a car last year and we miss our little buddy… I think our cat does to !
