A few weeks ago we ended up hiking the Mirror Lake Trail in Yosemite National Park and encountered an amusing little squirrel near the end of the trial. I just happened to have finished filming a deer that walked nearby, so I pointed the Canon SD800 at the little furball to see if he'd perform.
Sure enough, he did. Check out the video.
I have no idea if this is common or not, but we were all amused at the little stretching thing he did at the ~40 second mark.
I also have some good photos of that hike (and the visit to Glacier Point) that should be coming online soon. Watch my Flickr photostream.

Looks like a ground squirrel.
