Stare Down with a Squirrel?

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 7 March 2014 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

While appearing deadlocked in a stare down contest, this squirrel was actually reacting to the sound of my shutter on my camera.

Photo captured March 1, 2014.

NIKON D7000 1/800 second F/7.1 ISO 200 330 mm (35mm equiv.)
