EMotion: Have you ever played peek-a-boo with a squirrel?

I have; and i must say its rather fun and enjoyable. It was a beautiful day yesterday as is today (at least here in Blackpool anyway), and as i normally do i went for a walk to my park... well okay it's everyones, but secretly it's mine.
Was wandering through the wooded section looking for something interesting when i stopped against a tree, a squirrel came scurrying down. Hiding on the opposite side of the tree, constantly popping round each side to see if i was still there. It was quite funny seeing his/her little face popping out and in again. No normally i moan because i have a 55-200mm lens cos it's too short but in this case it was too big. I was simply too close to him/her to get a decent shot, plus it was really dark under the tree. So i had to wait until he/she went higher again. It was a good day, made even better when i saw a Nuthatch. Not exceedingly rare, but it's a rare enough and a quiet enough bird that puts a smile on my face when ever i see one.
