The one thing you don't want to do is make a brown squirrel angry!
I remember heading to the corn field across the street from my home to see what interesting photographs I could get.
I heard some rustling in the grass and saw 2 brown squirrels chasing each other. I stood quietly and waited to see where they would end up. One of them finally climbed on the tree and sat nicely on the branch. I positioned myself and starting clicking away and all the while he/she was yelling at me! All of a sudden I heard the rustling in the grass again and this time it sounded like it was coming towards me! I looked down and the other brown squirrel was coming at me! Yikes!!! He too was yelling at me and he was about 5-6 feet from me. So I said okay, okay I'm leaving! You two can go back to what you were doing! Geez I just wanted a picture!
I will say you don't want to mess with these brown squirrels, though they are cute they're also mean! Unlike their gray cousins.
See you next time!
