Animal Species: 2 or More

Challenge #3 in the Timing the Shot Just Right series. Hosted by camcom12.
Challenge has finished
In one image, show at least 2 different animal species. The goal is to capture unique, chance encounters of two or more living, but different animals, perhaps aware of each other. One of the animals must be wild; except farm, ranch or zoo animal(s) are ok in this role. Combinations might be: a bird and horse, a rabbit and mouse, a bear and dog, a spider and grasshopper, etc. If the image includes a household pet, only one pet per image please. (Unless participation is low, let's refrain from pet dog-&-cat, and waterfowl-with-fish photos this time, thank you.)

I have tried for some time to get a picture of a Blue Herron and a Great White Egret at the same time. I finally got the opportunity and up pops a squirrel in the middle of the picture.
