The picture could become one of the most classic viral selfies ever.
Brian Genest, 17, was in the Tampa Bay area visiting from Maine when his family decided to go for a hike at John Chesnut Sr. Park in Palm Harbor.
While they were walking up one of the bridged pathways, Brian spotted a friendly looking squirrel, so he decided to get a selfie.
Sure enough the squirrel complied. But flash after the flash from the camera apparently caused the squirrel to have a change of heart.
“He jumped on my shoulder and went down my shirt,” Brian said.
It was all captured on camera.
The squirrel ran up and around his back. Brian started flailing to get the animal off.
