morning visitors


Two squirrels come down the tree in front of my window every morning at about the same time, as if they had a set date there. They chase each other around the tree, making all kind of noises just like little kids... They are very quick and I can only try to take pictures from inside because I think they would leave if I go out. Pictured above is about the only image I have which is not (totally) blurry! I love the effect of the morning sun. It is before 9am.

  3. We have a squirrel that runs across the yard at the same time every day - one way he's empty - on the way back he's carrying a walnut. All fall... he's pretty funny!!

  4. Hi Mar! Love your pic of your squirrel. It must be lovely to watch them every day. There are grey squirrels near the lake I posted about on my blog. It can be quite funny watching them play and chase each other! :0)

  7. Congrats on the Gold! I love to watch squirrels. Don't have many attracted here like in TN. But I have lots of birds every morning that the cats and I enjoy listening too! Great shot you took because they are fast!

  8. hey mar - that's a great capture. You just need a faster camera for better pics. hehe. I love the sun shine on the squirrel too. We have mostly black ones here. I guess they are more annoying or something...

    Thanks for the well wishes and I hope to be able to figure out my photo problem soon on P's computer.

  11. Squirrels look so cute but they will tear things up if you let them. They love my flower boxes. They have put holes in two sets now. I gave them a good talking to but they don't seem to listen.lol

    Take care,
    Connie

  15. Great pic! I love to watch the birds and squirrels from my windows, too. I little ticked the squirrels keep eating all the bird food, though! I'll cut them some slack in the winter, but not now when they have plenty of food.

  16. When I was a little girl there was a squirrel that would come by my mother's bedroom window all the time. I named it Charlie. Maybe this is his great, great, great grandchildren.

  17. i hate squirrels! they're always getting into my bird feeders and eating all the bird seed!

    i did really enjoy watching a pair of squirrels at my parents house...
    one day last year, my mom had thrown out a bunch of old nuts that she couldnt use for pies... they must have been pecans... but it was so much fun watching them chase each other around trying to get to the nuts... and when the main squirrel was up hiding his nut, the other squirrel would sneak in and grab one and take off and hide it before the other one found out! it was so funny!

  19. I love squirrels! We have tons of them around here, but they won't allow me to take their pictures. Something about photos making them look fat. Silly squirrels!

    Kdubs' baby is soooooooo cute!!!! That whole family is adorable!
