squirrel-in-family-photo.jpgMelissa Brandts and her husband were exploring in the Banff National Park in Canada when they stopped to take a scenic photo of themselves using the timer on their camera.

They had their camera set up on some rocks when a curious little ground squirrel appeared, intrigued by the noise from the focusing mechanism centered himself right in the picture frame.

Melissa called it a once in a lifetime moment, “We were laughing about this little guy for days!!”

  1. What a delightful picture, and it is great you both were in it. I showed it to my son and he just loved it. I can see you already smiling and chuckling about the cute little squirrel. It is charming.
