This little guy, after finally deciding he could trust me not to do anything crazy like steal his cache of acorns, stuck by me for a good thirty minutes as I made my was around San Francisco’s Botanical Garden one sunny day back in the Spring. He actually did dig up two acorns in front of me and take the time to eat them. He didn’t offer me any, but still it’s the trust factor that counts so it was all good.
This photo happened near the end of his visit. I made it a point to stay calm; letting him show me what he wanted to show me. When he gave me this pose, I was tempted for about three seconds to join him on the bar just to show him I can do push ups… but then I thought it’s the right size for him… me? not so much.
