While my husband hiked to the horseshoe bend of the Colorado River, taking my camera, I sat and watched this little White-Tailed Antelope Squirrel pose and dance for an hour. Fortunately, the squirrel was still there when my husband returned, and I was able to photograph him doing push-ups on a rock and then printed the image to polyester fabric, thread painted using free-motion, machine appliqued with trapunto and machine quilted.
