Camera Critters #47

Camera Critters by Misty Dawn, go here to see who's participating.

Thanks so much for your visit, I'm still having problems with visiting if you read the post below you will understand why. I appreciate your understanding.

My back yard often gives me an opportunity to capture the Black Squirrels from Kent. This guy was playing in the back by the garden. He was searching for some nuts that he had buried.
I had thrown out some bread for the starlings and sparrows. One of the starlings had dropped it on the railing of the deck. The Black Squirrel decided it would be a treat for him.
It was lucky he was close enough to get some great photos of him eating the bread.
He even gave me a special pose as he got ready to run. Thank you Mr. Black Squirrel for you kindness in sharing your time with me.
Have a great day seeing the critters around the world.

If I had a beautiful black squirrel like that outside my window, I might be tempted to stay sitting and watching him all the time...sick or not :-) I'm sure his antics will help you get well soon!
