Lickin' the Heat

"Lickin' the Heat"
Taj Mahal, Agra, India

I love squirrels. I've always felt they're very communicative if you give them the right sort of attention and patience. Do I sound like a retard? Well, maybe but my penchant for photographing squirrels only got a boost when I saw a few hundred of them down at central park the other day. 

Sadly, I didn't get any good pictures. Squirrels in New York seem to have imbibed the spirit of the city they reside, nimble, always in a hurry.

But I got reminded of this old picture...taken on a road trip to Agra, right outside the Taj Mahal. Evidently, the heat got too much to bear for this little thing. 

I might have taken several squirrel pictures over the years, but this one, remains a favorite. I hope you see why! :)
