Marian Love Phillips took this photo of a "river rat" at Louisiana Circle overlook above Riverfront Park and the Mississippi River.
Back in February, I drove by the Louisiana Circle overlook to see if there was any river traffic and nothing was in view. I suddenly saw something in a tree that caught my eye and zoomed in and took this picture of a squirrel that I called a "river rat." Every time I have a picture published in the paper I am most humbled and thankful. The picture was a nice size in order to view the squirrel sitting on a limb with the bend of the river in the background.
