While walking on a trail at the Wrangell–St. Elias National Park and Preserve in Alaska, I didn’t expect to see any wildlife being so close to the Visitor Center, but then I heard something moving on the ground under a nearby tree.
I lifted my camera and at that very moment, I saw a little red squirrel run up a pine tree with a nut in its mouth. As I quickly focused in on the squirrel, it dropped the nut and started screeching at me.
I captured 3 photos before it scurried up the tree out of sight. This was the only photo that turned out.
My favorite part of this entire photo is the little bit of pine tree it has right above its right eyebrow. Such a cutie!
Whenever I attend a show to sell my photographs, this photo almost always sells out.
In addition to just the blank inside photo cards, I also have cards that have the following copy available for sale:
Personalize your own card. Just email me what you want the card to say and I’ll upload an image with your card quote that you can purchase.
This photo was selected in 2012 as the People’s Choice award during the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum’s Sale and most recently selected in the 2019 Minnesota Landscape Arboretum Exhibit. Read more about the exhibit.
