I go back to the park everyday to see if I can spot him, unfortunately they all look the same from far away. I leave him some food and feed the other squirrels there (some taking it out of my hands). I have spotted a rabbit, and fed a skinny groundhog basking just outside his home. He came close enough to take from my hands, but his teeth looked so big! So while I may not get to enjoy the company of Buddy, I am making new friends.
Just before releasing we had a photo shoot, which was a feat in itself. I had tried to get lots of pictures of Buddy to make up for not taking any for months, but most ended with him blurred as he doesn't sit still. It also doesn't help that he is so black, and just looks like a black blob (change the settings on your monitor to see him better). He also very much wanted to eat the camera.
