Kerry said...

Those squirrel spines are so flexible I swear they do yoga. Is there a pose called "squirrel pose"?

The White Farmhouse said...

The things you will do just to eat!

holdingmoments said...

Robin said...

T, amazing dexterity!

Elizabeth Grimes said...

Ha ha! Great pictures! :)

Kathy said...

Have you named this guy yet?

Mama-Bug said...

This little fella is quite an acrobat!

Gail Dixon (Louisiana Belle) said...

You have the most entertaining squirrels of anyone I know. Too funny!

Sharon said...

Don't you wish you could do that? OR... can you?

:-)

missing moments said...

A few of my squirrels have been absent. Not sure why .... mama squirrel is here every day but the boys are eating somewhere else!

Woody said...

and I though 'Inversion Therapy' was so 1980's.

Andrew said...

Going for every last scrap... lol

KAT said...

hungry little guy/gal...so flexible too

Candy C. said...

Those squirrels at your place sure crack me up! :)

Madge said...

Too darn cute... I especially enjoy the shot of him hanging on upside down to munch on a seed...

Montanagirl said...

They're quite acrobatic and definitely know all the tricks of the trade!

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

They are the epitome of "will work for food":@)

Leenie said...

Looks like your fuzzy friend was given a challenge and met it full on. Squirrels will do whatever it takes to get to the bird seeds.

Farm Girl said...

He does look pretty happy and contented.

bon bon said...

i can't believe you let your feeder get that low. are you feeling alright? ha!!

Sandra said...

you do have the silliest squirrels I have ever seen, AND the mostest with the mosstest acrobatic skills. I am howling with laughter

Paula said...

It puts on quite the show. All my squirrels in San Antonio knew how to do was run down the tree barking and teasing my dog. Oh they knew how to steal my pecans too.

Snappy Di said...

What a trapeze artist.. he oughta go join the circus!

Ellie said...

Oh, that is a clever squirrel he can fairly well hang on to that bird feeder.

Furry Bottoms said...

I believe you've got a runaway performer from the Cirque De Soliel troupe.

Kat said...

AWESOME!!

Bob Bushell said...

Please let me in, there is enough peanuts, don't you think?

eileeninmd said...

Great series on your squirrels. They look so limber, maybe they practice yoga.

Jill from Killeny Glen said...

Those nimble little stinkers!!!
SO CUTE!

Furry Bottoms said...

by the way, that is a really good profile shot of you there... I didn't realize before how blue your eyes were. You're a pretty lady!

Texan said...

I was at TS over the weekend and saw they had some bird feeders on clearance, I thought of you! The TS in Terrell :O).

ellen abbott said...

They are so agile.

Louise said...

He's probably cussing you with every mouthful. You're supposed to keep it FULL, you know. Then, he wouldn't have to do all of those acrobatics.

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Getting his workout while enjoying those last bites! LOL! The horses are beautiful in your morning light photos!!

Nancy @ A Rural Journal said...

You really really need to fill that feeder! ;)

Zondra Art said...

Great photos!
Nice day,kisses:)

Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Ah, they are so cute in Texas.

Lois Evensen said...

What a guy. He does what he has to do to get that seed. He knows you won't just lay it out in a bowl for him. ;)

Fjällripan said...

So lovely!!

♥ Helen said...

These photos are really cool :)
I can see you have many beautiful photos on your blog.

Roan said...

He sure looks like he is enjoying himself. I do love seeing what Mr. Squirrel is up to.

Jill said...

Adorable! Especially like the one where he is hanging staight down. :)

The Wife of a Dairyman said...

Clever little bugger, isn't he!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

I swear you must train your squirrels -- I know they love to sneak onto our bird feeders, but yours is remarkably agile.

pattisjarrett said...

Yep, a happy camper.

~from my front porch in the mountains~ said...

You bet he is a happy little critter!
Love the squirrels :)
xo, misha

Larry Ostby said...

Those little guys are amazing and very persistent + comical. Great series T.

Beyond My Garden said...

What fun. He is really stretched out in a few of these.

SouthCoast Guy said...

Their is no such thing as squirrel proof :)

Linda R. said...

What a cutie pie. I love to see the photos you get of these little guys..

Hugs, Linda

Farmchick said...

Such a gymnast!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Theresa, Those crazy squirrels can do most anything, can't they???? Too bad someone couldn't sneak up on him and 'goose' him!!!!!! ha ha ha
Hugs,
Betsy

Randy said...

Limber little guy!

Millie said...

So very funny! Those squirrels are silly.

Rose said...

You would think that gravity would work against them, but they seem to prefer hanging upside down to eat sometimes.

Maelgi said...

hola bellas imágenes , comparto tus gusto amo a los caballos y los perros y tengo dos sapos. me agrada tu blogs . saludos desde el sur de América.

Evelyn S. said...

I love how they hang by their feet! I considered buying that feeder after I saw your photos of it..but I already have a steel feeder that they manage to work quite well!

bailey-road.com said...

That little guy sure knows how to empty the bird feeder! I wonder how it feels to eat upside down? Wonderful photos!

T.@WhatWeKeep said...

How do you manage to get anything accomplished with so many funny little critters and their tricks? Squirrels just make me smile. : )

Nova said...

*laughing* may be he wanna be "Batman"

Cute little fellow

Karrie said...

Ahahahahahaha!!!! Those squirrels by you are plain old "NUTS"! LOL!

SquirrelQueen said...

Hey, whatever it takes to get the job done. He is really enjoying the feeder. Great shots.

Stewart M said...

Hi there - great shots - who needs TV when you can have squirrel-vision!

Splendid shots.

Arija said...

How's that for exercise? Wish I had the agility.

georgettesullins said...

This squirrel makes me think of those Mexican toys...they are two sticks with a gymnast stringed between the two sticks. When you squeeze they do great flips, somersaults and turns. You may enjoy it. You can find them in San Antonio at the Market/Mercado.

Dicky Bird said...

Did someone say "Mission Impossible?" That picture of squirrel hanging reminds me of it. You could write a cute coffee table book using all of the pictures you have taken of the squirrel(s). I'd buy it. Blessings from Wisconsin!

Michelle Renee said...

Love these!!! Number six where he's just hanging there by himself is my favorite, but they're all great. They're such fun creatures to watch.

christinemyoung said...

I love the squirrel hanging upside down ~ such a great shot! And the lighting on the horses in the last post is dreamy :) Thanks for letting me know I was picked for potw :)

Deb said...

call the circus...got yourself a star there...

Tricia said...

ROFLMBO that's hilarious =)

Desiree said...

It seems squirrels are tenacious guzzlers the world over! Wonderful pictures...such determination!

Gary said...

Is he in training? Boom & Gary of the Vermilon River, Canada.

heyBJK said...

LMAO! That takes some skill right there! If those tree rats weren't so bendy and didn't have mad ninja skills, they'd probably starve! :-)

forestwalk/laura k said...

CUTE!! now if only they'd learn to do some flips in the air, or high jumps...when going up or down to the feeders...the normal climbling up & down the tree gets boring after a while! :) but the acrobatics while up there makes it all worth the watch!!

lisaschaos said...

They're so much fun to watch!

Chatty Crone said...

He looks like a natural gymnast!

Lisa RedWillow said...

This is just too cute. Love Love this. Made me laugh and smile and I mean l did laugh out loud.

Kerri said...
