Black Squirrel Through A Camera’s Eyes

I used to look at black squirrels as threadbare cousins of the lush-tailed grey squirrels whose sole purpose in life was to steal my bulbs and munch on my crocus flowers. They were the enemy.

Then a couple of English cousins came to visit, and they stood transfixed every morning, watching these never-before-seen black things bouncing around my yard, pausing only to dig up some tasty morsel…or hide one. Amazing how a creature we take so much for granted, even despise, because of its ubiquitousness, becomes an exotic in the eyes of another person.

I’m still not that keen on them, but now my camera shows me what my cousins saw, and I too can enjoy their cuteness.
