Thanks to Diana, many bloggers have been taking time on Fridays to think about things we're grateful for.
Today, I'm grateful for the laugh I had over this cheeky little squirrel who popped up in a family photo taken near Banff in the Rocky Mountains.
Melissa and Jackson Brandts had set the timer on their camera to take their photo while they posed at Lake Minnewanka near Banff. Just before the camera shot their photo, the squirrel -- perhaps curious about the camera noise -- popped up, in perfect position.
The couple submitted their prized photo to National Geographic.
"We were laughing about this little guy for days," Melissa Brandts, who was visiting Alberta from Minnesota, wrote to National Geographic.
The squirrel photo, submitted to the magazine, was posted in its "Daily Dozen" gallery of readers' pictures on August 7. Since then, newspapers around the world have written about the curious critter -- dubbed the Crasher Squirrel -- and links to the photo have flooded the web.
It has also been photo-shopped to great effect. I like this from CBC:
