This photo is over a year old but here you see my favorite squirrel. We have a couple of different ones that come into our yard but she, lady with fuzzy ears, is my favorite and I really don’t mind too much when she steals some seed.
This spring she had twins. They’re a lot of fun to watch running and scampering and playing with each other. But getting both of them in one shot proved difficult.
I think they are as curious about me as I am about them.
And this stupid chipmunk, yeah, I got a little fed up with chipmunks this summer. They kept stealing our tomatoes off the vine so we finally bought a live trap (placed it between the tomato plants) and relocated some of them. I don’t think they have large territories so I really think the ones we have moved out have stayed out but we still have plenty. The first day the trap was out we caught eight of them, and each day after that at least two a day, every single day for a month and we still have plenty! We have a highway very near our house so we put them on the other side of the highway hoping that would keep them away.
Anyway, this stupid chipmunk wanted to play with the squirrels but they were having none of that.
A part of me wishes I was this limber, but then again I don’t think I would like scratching my butt with my mouth.
Hiding in the bush waiting for me to leave so it can get some more birdseed.
They’re everywhere! It’s a love/hate relationship!
Too bad the babies can’t have their mama’s furry beige ears.
