The fastest squirrel in the zoo

This photo taken Sunday in the Copenhagen Zoo is testimony to yesterdays post about squirrels being hard to capture on film. Running like the proverbial Road-Runner through the okapi's enclosure I half-way anticipated it to go meek-meek. If I hadn't been in the process of photographing the more sedate okapis I wouldn't have been able to get this shot. Maybe it thought it was crossing in front of the tigers?
