Looking for Nuts?

Washington Square, Manhattan, New York

While walking around Washington Square in New York City, I spotted this squirrel coming down this tree. It was late in the day and the sun was just beginning to set. The tree was in shadow except for this small patch of light. As I approached on the sidewalk, the squirrel stops in the sunlight and just poses for me, daring me to take his image. I move closer but the squirrel doesn't move at all, not even a twitch. So I figure the squirrel is an out of work actor and needs a shot for his portfolio and take it for him. I'm not exactly sure why animals in NYC seem to give me these looks (see my post with the annoyed cat) but I am guessing that he was looking for nuts and found one.
