We have corn fields behind our home and after the harvest, the scenery is like the first picture in this post. Clear skies invited me to go for a walk one day in October and I saw the unexpected.
Is that a squirrel with its share of the harvest?
The squirrel did not like me staring, so it decided to cross the street. Mind you, it still chose to sprint holding on to its booty.
Now the squirrel was comfortable in my presence and let me take pictures.
Corn on the cob for lunch.
It had finished most of its meal and chose to pose for this picture.
Not too far from where the squirrel was eating was this sign. Wonder, what the squirrel thought about it? Chuckle!
This is my entry for the weekly photo challenge Unexpected.
The one thing, I learned from this unexpected encounter was, such chance meetings could be where writers find inspiration. It could just be the “Once upon a time…” that we all have read in Beatrix Potter’s “The Tale of Peter Rabbit”. As children, we let our imagination soar and believe in these stories but as we get older we have to “see it to believe it”.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Have a great weekend!
