Golden-mantled ground squirrel by Betsy Seeton

In celebration of Independence Day in the U.S., we present a golden-mantled ground squirrel holding on to the flag, photographed by Betsy Seeton. The animals around her cabin "are continually curious about what I'm doing," the Colorado resident says. "I place toys and props in the yard and they interact with them." For this image, she used a Sony DSLR-A100.
