That Crazy Squirrel

This weeks photo is “That Crazy Squirrel” was taken at the Thousand Trails Park at Lake Tawakoni in East Texas. I was out working on my RV, and this little squirrel started following me around my RV. This little guy was not afraid of people at all. I got a hand full of nuts, and he would come right up and take one out of my hand and eat it. Then come back for more. He then followed me around the whole time I was working. I decided to take a picture of him, so I told him to pose for me, and this is what I got. It was one of the coolest things I have experienced with wildlife. The little guy came back a couple more times during my stay, and he got some more nuts.
