Never Before…..

Well, Hello?!

Well, Hello?!

……Has a squirrel stood still while I focused and aimed the camera – usually I am trying to catch up to them as they are darting away! Squirrels are skittish. They like to be up in the trees scolding, and throwing pinecones!

Should I stay or should I go!?

Yesterday morning at Planta Park this squirrel and I bonded over a pine cone breakfast – his breakfast, not mine!  This was one happy, placid squirrel.  Tom, Sophie and I weren’t even six feet away when we noticed each other!

Well this is pretty good - maybe a few more bites - they look pretty harmless!

The squirrel was dining on a pine cone, and it must have been good!  We could see the squirrel thinking about taking off – but then – he settled down and started eating again – and all the while I was taking pictures.  After a couple of bites and maybe a dozen pictures – enough was enough and he took off, but moved only about 15 feet away and started in on the pine cone again.  Fabulous!

Was this home sweet home for our new friend!?

This was a local brown squirrel, small and obviously very secure.  I was very happy to see him as the black squirrels have been moving in and taking over.  They are bigger and more aggressive, not good neighbours for the brown squirrels.

The squirrel was the highlight of this walk!

I hope that you are having a great weekend.

Happy Viewing

    Definitely the highlight, although the web is pretty awesome.

    The squirrel looks like a young one. They haven’t yet learned to be afraid. Lovely photos.
