Ready For My Close-Up!

Squirrels are usually reluctant models. This one, however, had a card that read, "I'm Ready for my close-up!"

Christmas Prayer

A Squirrel prays for an easy winter on Christmas day. (How do I know? Simple, I was there!)

A Squirrel Ham

Most of the animals I run into in the woods are very shy and skittish but, every once in a while, I happen across one that actually seems to want its photo taken. This was one of those cases. This squirrel jumped out into the middle of the path I was on and walked with me until we got near this bench. It then hopped up onto the bench and gave me that, "I'm ready for my close-up" look. I probably could have gotten it to pose even longer but a herd of 25 to 30 runners was right behind us on the trail and that sound was even too much for a squirrel that wanted to be in the limelight. 

Like National Geographic, Only Crappier...

Ever hear someone talking about "eating like a bird"? The assumption is that birds don't eat very much. How else do birds stay "light as a feather"?

Well, I'm here to tell ya that the birds who frequent my backyard eat like pigs! I am constantly filling the feeders with seed and suet and they make quick work of consuming it all.

As much as the birds eat, the squirrels eat even more! They eat the bird food and chow down on ear after ear of the corn that I put out for them. Well, the last thing I want on my conscience is a dray of fat squirrels! From here on out, the squirrels are going to have to work for their dinner.

As you can see in the video below, the early results are good!
