“Are you the one who feeds me corn?”
Photographer: Mary Chamberlin
Location: Our backyard
Story: 
I love taking photographs of squirrels and studying their behavior. My husband and I have a bow window overlooking our yard and a big old Siberian Elm tree where the squirrels make a nest every year. We’ve placed our feeder on a spot where a limb had to be removed after a storm. Every day I see who’s come to visit the feeder looking through a pair of binoculars. I’ve named this squirrel “Notch” because of the small piece taken out of his one ear. He’s been a regular at our feeder for several years now. He let me get pretty close but I still used my Canon zoom lens EF 75-300mm on my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XTi camera.
