Squirrels At Play

This is my 600TH post. Hard to believe I have reached this number. I am getting close to the 30,000 visit. We will have to see who will win a prize for the visit.

In early February we had a early thaw and the squirrels thought they would come out and play. There were four squirrels in this one yard and I was able to capture them. One of the Black Squirrels was on the big tree where I think they all live. The Grey Squirrel was looking under the leaves for something to eat.
I'm not sure why this Black Squirrel was climbing on this little Rhododrendon Tree.
The Gray Squirrel has gotten use to the man made items as this one is under a tarp.
I will be doing some hospital testing so will not be able to respond today.

Congratultions on your 600th post!! WOW.
I love seeing pictures of black squirrels you don't see them too often. We used to have a white squirrel visit our house when we lived in Fairborn, OH.

Squirrels are never at play: it's 100 percent business. It's sort of admirable that one sometimes can't tell the difference. When work is fun is a beautiful thing!

Squirrels are so cute, wish we had them in NZ, but we don't, I have seen them when over seas and enjoyed there antics.
You have done well to post 600 items, well done. ( How did you know it was the 600th post?)
All the best for hosp tests.

I've never seen a black squirrel before. We don't see much squirrel here, just recently I saw one in my neighbourhood, It was climbing a big tree in between 2 blocks of high rise apartment, that the first and last I saw it.

Darla said...

Squirrels get on my nerves here! I do like your black one though. Pray your testing goes well!

Impressive numbers. I have a long way to reach that mark. Intersting squirrel series. Blue Skies.
