Golden Mantled Ground Squirrel
Photographer: Darcy Gloer
Location: Waterton National Park, Alberta Canada
This squirrel had been following us down a path for a fair ways. We had stopped to watch him collecting and eating small flowers when my wife decided to see if he was as friendly as he seemed. She picked one of the same flowers that he gathering and offered it to him. To our surprise he immediately came running over and accepted her gift, then scampered off to eat it.
