Silly Acrobat



Camera Critters

My birdfeeders are ‘supposedly’ squirrel proof. Maybe that’s why this fellow decided to try for the suet.

Hanging by one claw, he didn’t fall.

He still had to try for the seed. Silly squirrel!

  23. Wanna have some fun? Whatever it is that he climbed to get up there - grease it with Vasoline. He won't be able to get up there any more, but it will be fun watching him try! (no it does not hurt him)

  34. I happily feed my squirrels. I feel like they are pets, but my older cat has unpure intentions for them.
    He is most adorable.

  39. Karmyn has a big gray squirrel that picks up the food scattered beneath the feeders.
    I saw him this week while I visited.

    I failed to capture any photos -- but I did get the Bushtits -- and will post them next week

  40. These are great acrobatic shots! They sure are a hoot to watch.

  41. They are so cute. We have one that goes in our sun room and sits on the dog food container. We got one of those expensive food holders that are suppose to keep critters out. It is plastic though and the squirrel chewed the corner and now it doesn't latch really well either so the squirrel 'Carrol" Z calls it, pushes the door open where the teeth marks are, climbs in and gets a nugget, comes out and sits on top and eats it with it's little 'hands'. So very cute but so very bad.
