Some photos of a visitor to our home: a young squirrel, I belive orphaned (a car ran over an adult squirrel the night before this youngster happened along).
The squirrel hid under the front steps of the house next door, until growing confident that no harm would come its way.
Although the rodent was friendly, I didn't want it to lose its fear of humans. After taking a few snapshots, I stepped away.
Later on when it was gone from the immediate area, I sprinkled a few peanuts on the ground, in hopes if the creature was hungry this would sustain it for the time being.
