Camera Critters # 95 - Squirrels


Since I had a Eastern Gray Squirrel as my header, I thought I show some others who have visited during the year. This Black Squirrel wanted to eat. Maybe I should call it squirrels just like to eat 
and eat
and eat.
They only take a break when they are full
or taking a rest between feedings.
I do hope you had fun with this critter and check out some others above.

The black squirrel is a cool looking critter. I have been watching the squirrels at my feeders this morning.

Wonderful squirrel series, Tom. That header shot is a stunner!

Teresa said...

Great shots. They are mischevious little devils aren't they. Those black squirrels are nice. We don't have them here, but just 60 miles north of us in Syracuse, they do. I was so surprised one day when I saw one while visiting. You would think they'd live here too, we aren't that far away.

What a super header picture you got there. The squirrel doing the flat as a pancake mission impossible position is just so comical, it made me smile. Nice one.

I have NEVER EVER seen a black squirrel before. Just amazing. I always appreciated the squirrels at my feeders, and even went out of my way to provide especially for them (under the guise of trying to keep them from sucking the bird feeders dry!). Love the last photo the best! Have to wonder what was going through his mind at that moment. ~karen

I've said earlier that I love the header and I really like the one with the ear of corn.
When I'm over in Ohio I really need to keep my eyes open for one of those black squirrels.
