My name is Paul J Marto and I shot this funny picture in February, 2010. I used my Canon 7D with a 100-400mm zoom lens. I did some slight post production tweaking of the colors. I call this whimsical photograph "Thought There Was A Prize In Here" and it was taken in Southern California. A squirrel frantically empties a box of Nerds candy in search of the prize that was never found. This was hysterical to watch. The squirrel never ate any of the candy, he was just determined to get to the bottom of the box, throwing Nerds all over the place in the process. This photo and many others are available for purchase on my etsy site: Also, please visit my Fine Art America website listed below to view 200 of my best wildlife prints.
