To beg or not to beg...that is the question

I spent a luxurious morning sketching at Howarth Park, stopping at Lake Ralphine for lunch and some ground squirrel antics to amuse both Chloe (my dog) and I. I sketched the goose while the ground squirrels were in hiding. The squirrel on hind feet was about 6 feet (1.8 meters) away and appeared to be considering whether I might be hiding food in my backpack and if it would be worth it to come closer to the dog to find out. She decided to keep her distance.


  1. These little guys never stand still long so you have done really well to capture these wonderful action sketches.

  2. Debbie - I need you to send me a squirrel, quickly. Please, I so want to try to draw one. These are lovely, I agree with Pat, you have done wonders capturing them. Nice goose too.

    Sounds like a very enjoyable outing too.
