Happy Little Squirrel :o)
.
Yesterday was such a gorgeous day...the sun was out, the sky was blue, the birds were chirping, and best of all, the snow was melting! I caught one of our many squirrels taking a pit stop way up in the tree. These little guys are really cute but they can also be a real nuisance too! I don't know how many bird feeders they've broken on me...when they see something they want they will try as hard as they can till they get it! The last one figured out that if he knawed on the string that held the bird feeder on the tree then the whole feeder would come crashing to the ground leaving him a very happy and full squirrel!

So needless to say, I don't hang feeders out anymore for the birds! Doesn't it look like he's actually posing for me while I take his picture? You gotta click on the photos to see his face close up...he was actually looking right at me the whole time! I love the colour of his tail.

We have a huge family of squirrels that have made the inside of one of our very old trees their home. It's a really neat looking tree too cuz it looks all haunted and spooky...It looks like it's dying but every Summer it has a gorgeous top to it...the leaves really make it look beautiful. I'll have to get a pic of it when the snow is all gone and it starts to get leaves. Anyway, that tree houses so many of the squirrels around here and it's such a neat tree cuz they have what looks just like an oval front door down at the bottom of it just like the Beatrix Potter stories! There is also an opening in the middle of the tree where all the branches branch off the trunk where they like to play "now you see me, now you don't"...it's a pretty neat tree. I would love to be able to see what it looks like on the inside, you know...to see what they've done with the place...lol!

For now, I'll leave you with these 2 videos that I took of this little guy grooming himself way up high in the branches...I love when he gets to his tail. Don't mind the wiggly camera...I found it a little difficult to hold the camera still while looking way up in those branches ;o)
