Who couldn’t be happy once they discovered this little guy peeking his head around dry blades of grass to say hello week, I am ready for you!

I really hope you caught the little guy and brought him home for a pet, cause he looks like the cutest thing ever! Kristi, you really have talent.

I love taking photos and do it way too much, but I am really, really bad at it. Now that I think about it, I can’t really go to any course, being far from any bigger city at the moment, but would you recommend a beginners, simple photography course I can take online or something? Just as a hobby?

Ahhhh! Cute overload!

LOVE these things. Funny you put a picture up now. I was just watching last night a commercial for a new Animal Planet show about these guys. Something about how they communicate and have very advanced vocalizations. Can’t wait.

Very nice, you cured my horrible case of the Mondays. I do have one question though, what kind of animal is that?

I’m pretty sure it’s a little ground squirrel. I thought it was a chipmunk at first, but Google confirmed it wasn’t. ๐Ÿ™‚

Reminds me of the squirrels I keep chasing from our bird-feeders but cuter.

Love the “expression” on his face… um “run.. or sit still”… um

Totally awesome Kristi! I just love the little fur people. I keep askin’, but Mrs. Toad says I’m not allowed to bring a squirrel in the house as a pet. What a fabulous image!
