Default Golden Mantle Ground Squirrel

Caught this little guy under a rock snacking. Any suggestions on color or cropping? The two pieces of rock at the right bug me a bit but to crop it out will take out a large portion of the squirrel.

Was this in shade? The colors look way too muted to me. Otherwise it is a nice picture.

Yes it was in shade. I think he was trying to hide his food from the others. Thanks for the feedback.

Oh, such a cute little being. Have to watch my dogs. They like them too, but not in the same way

Thank you for all your comments. Torgny, that is funny, I can relate. Our dog was watching us from the car and was less than pleased at seeing them and that my wife and I were paying attention to them!
