Camera Critters

I've posted this photo before, but it was over the summer, and I didn't originally post it for Camera Critters. This was taken at the Grand Canyon right by the main rim trail. I guess the snake was lost, and the squirrel didn't want him there! The squirrel kept throwing dirt at the snake, but finally, the squirrel ran off. I'm usually deathly afraid of snakes, but there were so many people around, I knew I was safe. Happy 6 month anniversary to Camera Critters!

Wow! I'm glad the snake didn't eat the squirrel! Yay for you for getting such a great picture - I would have been FAR away from that snake!

LOL! I bet that was so fun watching the squirrel do that. I'm not a fan of snakes myself but I would have had to stay for the shot as well.

I'm not so fond of snakes myself. I never would have expected the squirrel to throw dirt on the snake to try and get it to leave. I would have expected the squirrel to run away pretty quickly.

Two of my favorite things in one photo! Squirrels and the G.C.! That is SO like a squirrel...at least the squirrels that roam in places like the Grand Cyn...they come into contact with so any tourists they have real chutzpah!
