CALLED "LITTLE PATRIOT" NATIONAL WILDLIFE FEDERATION POSTS JASPER WITH THE U.S. FLAG for PHOTO OF THE WEEK
I never knew this photo made PHOTO OF THE WEEK! I just stumbled across this today! It's not photoshopped.
In celebration of Independence Day in the U.S., we (NWF) present a golden-mantled ground squirrel holding on to the flag, photographed by Betsy Seeton. The animals around her cabin "are continually curious about what I'm doing," the Colorado resident says. "I place toys and props in the yard and they interact with them." For this image, she used a Sony DSLR-A100.
"Ask not what an animal can do for you; ask what you can do for an animal." Jasper
"The animals of the world exist for their own reasons. They were not made for humans any more than black people were made for white, or women created for men." ~Alice Walker
The source of the quote is Walker's preface to Marjorie Spiegel's 1988 book, "The Dreaded Comparison" . Her next sentence was, "This is the gist of Ms. Spiegel's cogent, humane and astute argument, and it is sound."
