    This is Gus, an orphaned squirrel. First she was fed by syringe but then graduated up to peanuts & broccoli. When she was strong enough to be on her own, she found a tree in a local park and eventually started a family. I feel privileged to have had such a close bond and trust of a wild animal

    HI Sarah, you created a very unusual focus and depth of field of Gus. Love seeing those hand-paws and wild whiskers.

    Thank you very much for the positive feedback.

    What makes this even more special to me is the trust Gus displayed, allowing me to get so close.

    *note: have come to learn that Gus is a Gus"ette"
