That seems to be true, but actually I was only lucky because I came across this old retired man sitting on the bench to the left of where this squirrel respites. The man told me that he goes to Battery Park pretty much every day to feed the same squirrels. He had one of those insulated lunch bags filled with peanuts. There were 3 squirrels around him. One of the three laid on his lap. The squirrel was not only exhausted from the heat but from eating so much exotic food for him/her. Peanuts don't grow in Battery Park. I like your play of sending me to my own photos. I could not have predicted when I clicked. :D

Thank you for both taking a look at this little squirrel avoiding the heat of the sun. I got a few pictures of some crazy squirrels in Madison Square Park in Manhattan today. I will post them some time soon if your interested.

Cheers,

Chris

Thank you Beatriz for commenting on this tuckered out rodent. He/she was tired from eating so many peanuts. Beautiful name Beatriz, by the way. :]
