Fun Friday: Looking for a Handout

During last month’s visit to Minnesota’s North Shore, this little guy followed me around the Grand Marais harbor, looking for a handout:

Ground Squirrel

Ground Squirrel

I can report that he had no luck with me.  First, I had no food items with me. But more importantly, even if I had, I would not have fed him. Cute … yes. But feeding wildlife is not a good thing to do. Besides not being on his natural diet, human foods are not good for wildlife.

Photo Equipment Used:

  • Canon 7D body
  • Canon 180mm macro lens (my wildlife lens was in my backpack, in the car … didn’t expect to see wildlife while photographing the harbor’s lighthouse. Only had macro lens and wide angle lens with me)
  • Handheld
  • ISO 500 (it was a dreary, misty day)
  • Aperture f/3.5
  • Shutter speed 1/400 sec.
