Banff National Park Squirrel

“My husband and I were exploring Lake Minnewanka in Banff National Park-Canada when we stopped for a timed picture of the two of us. We had our camera set up on some rocks and were getting ready to take the picture when this curious little ground squirrel appeared, became intriqued with the sound of the focusing camera and popped right into our shot! A once in a lifetime moment! We were laughing about this little guy for days!!”

That other day I heard from the radio DJ about this squirrel and went to google it out and YUP, above is the photo that was taken by them and the squirrel just popped out from nowhere and it has now been an icon for the Banff National Park, and this squirrel got famous around the world, just with the click on the camera!

It is part of the marketing plan of the Banff National Park and the squirrel is also going to appear on a movie. HAHA
