Buddy is a little upset with Photographer Scott Alan Johnson. Buddy says he and the A.C.O.R.N. members do all the work and the human who photographs them gets all the credit.

On January 22 2007 Photographer Scott Alan Johnson was featured in the Cleveland Plain Dealer Newspaper showing off his car, the Squirrel Mobile.

Buddy is really happy that Scott got this honor but says next time he wants to see his photo the front page!

The Photographing Squirrels are gaining popularity down under in Australia

On their very first issue the Australian Photography Magazine "UNSEEN" has picked the members of the A.C.O.R.N. Group to fill some of their pages.

This is such an honor for the Squirrels because few of them have ever traveled across the Great Forest in Ohio, never mind all the way around the world to Australia.

Someday Buddy Squirrel would love to travel around the world and visit the UNSEEN Magazine people.

Sometimes they call these magazines "Tabloids" because they show celebrities in all their everyday glory.

You can only guess how excited Barley Squirrel was when he saw his picture in the August 18th issue of OK! Magazine.

Now Barley Squirrel's head is high up in the clouds. His ego is even bigger than it was before his picture hit this Star Studded Magazine. But PLEASE don't tell him I said that.

More shots of Barley and some of the other A.C.O.R.N. GROUP members should appear in some more British magazines in the near future.

Keep an eye out Please!!

When I first saw some of the squirrel artwork Greg Lindenback draws, I knew he should draw something for the PHOTOGRAPHING SQUIRRELS.

I asked him, if he ever had any free-time, to please see what he could do with a squirrel and a camera.

I never dreamed he would do anything so nice or so quickly.

Well as you can see, he out did himself and brought artistic justice to the A.C.O.R.N. GROUP.

If you would like to see more of Greg's squirrel art click on the drawing or go to his site

I can only hope we will see more of these wonderful masterpieces.
