It was a lazy day. The type of day where everything seemed to move slowly and the hours stretched on forever. It was the type of day to dream. So I grabbed my camera and sunglasses – a day like this should not be spent solely indoors. Down the street was a park with its own nature and hiking trail. That’s where I decided to go. Spending time among nature was exactly what this day needed. 

I took pictures of the flowers and trees, and abstract shadows made from the sunlight filtering though the canopy. A few hours later I stopped to sit against a fallen log. The area was serene, and though it was slightly off the path the grass around it was not overly overgrown. Pulling out my camera I flipped through the pictures that I had already taken.  Out of the corner of my eye I noticed I had acquired a visitor. 

A brown squirrel had hoped up on the log and was looking at me with curious and cautious eyes. He probably thought that I had food. 

“Hey fella, fancy a picture?” I asked him.  I raised my camera slowly as I didn’t want to frighten the squirrel. He took a few steps back, but didn’t abandon the log. I wished that I had something to negotiate with, but I didn’t have anything. Not even a snack bar to offer. 

“Picture?” Like the squirrel understood anything that I was saying. “Don’t move, okay?” I started to rotate to get a better position and he moved too.  He raised a leg, looking ready to jump, so I paused. “It’s okay,” I tried to sound calm and reassuring.  “Just one . . . little . . . shot.”

I had everything lined up.  Everything was perfect. 

Snap.
