Strike a Pose

Photos taken Jan 3 and Jan 12 around our Capitol. I don't mind seeing these guys when I'm out and about. Just as long as they stay the heck out of my yard.
A cherished gift from the bread lady.

So darn cute! We have one that runs along the top of the fence to tease the pooches; I've named him Bratticus.

I know they're varmints, but they're still cute. And their antics can be so entertaining. Great shots.

These little devils are too cute for words -- when they're in a neighbor's yard . . . afraid I've let loose with some choice words when I've caught them digging up my tulip bulbs.

Karen said...

I love squirrels. I have about 15 that frequent my yard and feeders. I can feed a couple by hand. My daughter calls me "The Nutty Squirrel Lady". Those are brilliant shots Gail!

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

They are cute, and indeed are survivors in the urban environment. I greatly enlarged a squirrel eye reflection like the one in your last photo and could see myself holding the camera!(In fact I put the photo in a forthcoming blog post).
