A real squirrel cage

This feeder is truly a jungle gym buffet.  I knew it was only a matter of time before the squirrels breached it.  But it was so worth it!



Can you stand some more photos?!

Pesky little devils but they provided some great subject matter. Wonderful shots!

Debbie said...

The seventh picture made me laugh outloud. They are all great, but that one is awsome! The little bugger was having too much fun, Ms. T.

The 7th picture down is my favorite. I've been fighting this one squirrel for a long time and finally today I out-witted him. Have fun feeding the squirrels.

Nancy said...

They better not put on any extra weight or you'll have to get the jaws of life to extract them. ;)

Ms. Becky said...

these are hilarious! I'm wondering how long he was at this feeder doing his acrobatic moves. he's adorable. the last one is my fave. squirrels will go through a LOT to get some grub. I once saw one do a black flip off my feeder. it was too much for him. great shots Theresa! thanks for the day's entertainment.

Paula said...

Little booger~ it was only a matter of time before he got brave enough to try it! *hehe*

Sarah said...

that's hilarious! He surely was enjoying his meal! I miss the squirels! Never thought I'd say that when they were raiding my feeders, but I'd happily share to have a few come by now!

AJ said...

I can stand a lot more...they are just AWESOME! What great captures!!

Annesphamily said...

Daring little critters aren't they? Hee Hee! I was feeding one that a band of bullying robins scared off! Can you believe it? Robins's being so fearless!Love the feeder though!

Texan said...

The Wife of a Dairyman said...

Now those are some action shots!

Janie2 said...

YES SO WORTH IT! These are such sharp amazing photos, that draw the eye right to the beauty of nature. Even though squirrels can be pests. How on earth were you able to pull this one off? What a fun post.

Home In The Hollow said...

WOW! His antics are quite entertaining, aren't they?

Sailor said...

Wow he is cleaver!

Michaele said...

The challenge makes it taste that much better. I enjoyed the photo shoot even more than the real thing.

Oh Tex, that is too much fun! I was wondering if the squireel was going to get stuck! How great :)

Farmchick said...

These brought such a smile to my face and then I had to share them with my kids. We all loved them! What a hoot this little guy is!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

I am glad we don't have squirrels. I like watching them in other places but they do look to destructive.

SquirrelQueen said...

Aw, she is a pretty girl. Looks like she is enjoying playing in the feeder as much as grabbing the food. Great shots.

Karen Thomason/Gordon Setter Crossing said...

Oh T, That's so funny!! I'm glad I didn't get one of those feeders now, but seeing your photos of yours is great!! We're still laughing...LOL

Tiffany said...

They are so smart...do you think he is free to fix my computer? LOL!

Amy said...

Hahahaha, how sweet and FUNNY these photos were!! We have squirrels in Norway but it is seldom you see them...this little guy looks almost too fat to fit through those holes, how funny if he had been stuck!!! Guess he got a little workout climbing around that feeder- WHILE he was eating!! So cute!! Thanks for sharing!!
Have a wonderful day!!

jo©o said...

Event though I am not too fond of them, after this performance I'll forgive them anything :-)

Didn't you do well getting so many terrific shots.

Margaret said...

!! Thanks for the smile. He is hysterical - a few more seeds and he won't fit!

Poppy Daydreams said...

He or she is absolutely gorgeous, i love the fourth photo up where he or she's little feet are hanging out of the bird feeder. Lovely photo's.

Arija said...

That feeder sure is priceless!

Rose said...

I LOVE these!!!!

The Village Queen said...

He deserved the seed after going through all that! What a entertainment. Mine are lazy they get seed in a bowl. No challange at all. Ill have to look for one of those feeders. I really feed the birds so that cats have something to look at out the windows. City life. You have such a wonderful home and abundant animal life. Thanks for sharing!

Marissa ♥ said...

These photos made me giggle. I love them!

pollkat said...

Your photography is so bright, clear and colorful. Have you taken lessons? Do you do this professionally? I have yet to take a picture that is as brilliant as any of yours. What kind of camera do you use? Do you always shoot in bright sun? And use a tripod? Gorgeous!!!
