Today, on this gorgeous 17 degree day, we set out to find.... the white squirrel. And we did! SO magical!

  1. Albino squirrel!! I'm so glad you got a shot of him (or her).

  2. Oh yes yes, me too. We were helped by some guys who threw peanuts at the base of the tree he was camped out in. I think they were feeding all the squirrels in the park though, not just the white ones.

  3. Yes, but one of the guys asked the other guy how many normal-squirrel sightings seeing an albino squirrel was worth. The guy with the peanuts replied, without hesitation, "About ten". I'm going to start quantifying more things.

  4. Ten? I would have said more like 100, or even a thousand. I mean, how hard is it to "sight" a squirrel?

  5. I feel like the awesomeness of albino squirrels is unquantifiable. They partake of the sublime.
