Phoenix, AZ - 14 Jun 2015 See on Google Maps
At the Phoenix Desert Botanical Garden I see many ground squirrels. Sometime they do interesting things and are cute. This little guy climbed up onto a barrel cactus and began eating the cactus's fruit. I was quite a distance so I would not spook him - 400 mm. I was not on a tripod but hand held so with a big lens you need to have a high shutter speed to stay in focus and avoid shaking.
