Carole M. said...

:) made me smile; you got some wonderful snaps, maybe it was worth it?

Kerri said...

They'll do anything to get at that seed! But they are so cute!

Linda said...

The shots were wonderful! Pesky little things always manage to do what it takes to get the food!

Fireblossom said...

I know it's annoying, but I laughed out loud at the top picture with the feeder on the ground and the squirrel hard at work teasing those seeds out. You've got to admire him, even as you call him names!

Looks like he made it easier to get at the good stuff. What a character!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Are you going to press vandalism charges?

Wanda..plain~N~simple said...

LOL, what a cute series #5 is my favorite, he seems to be smelling the aroma of his yummy treasure!

JM said...

What a great sequence! Wonderful captures of this little cute hungry thief.

Daffycat said...

LOL in snap #3 you can see how wide his butt is!

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

A cute varmint, but still a varmint.

Jan n Jer said...

They are great at stealing...and driving you crazy too!

Proof of why they drive me nuts! Cute photos though. :)

Magia da Inês said...

São muito fofos... mas também dão prejuízo.
Bom domingo de Ramos!
Beijinhos.

Mike said...

Oh, but it's so much easier than hanging upside down. Now, if I can only figure out where that large hole went.

Gone Country said...

Hee,hee!

"What varmint? I don't see any varmints round here, do you?" (second photo!)

They are rascals, but oh, so cute!

Sally said...

He sure had to work hard, yet he found a means to the end! How funny. :)

Genie said...

Geeze these guys are determined creatures. They just will not give up. We have no problem with them and only see a few now and then. But, now your place is a different thing. I bet they do drive you nuts. They do provide the opportunity for some great shots...and they do make me giggle. genie

polkadotpeticoat said...

what a stinker, I bet the birds had a few one liners for him!

Lynn said...

Dear Misha,

I owe you a big apology. I visited from Irish Garden House yesterday and wanted to show my redhead daughter your beautiful site. Before I knew it she had snatched your picture by Carrie to her computer.
Glad you are feeling better

Varmint's, drat, indeed,
Lynn Day

Sandra said...

did that rascal finally knock down the feeder? these are great shots. made me laugh at each one. he is so darn cute

Lynne said...

Ditto . . . . !!!!!!!!!!

Kathy said...

They are certainly persistent little creatures, and craft, and smart, and cute!

parker said...

And the age old battle continues!LOL

Judy said...

What a bugger ;)

laurak@forestwalkart said...

haha! the little varmint's motto "where there's a will, there's a way!"

Mama Hen said...

Made me think of James A Michener's short story, "The Colonel and Genghis Khan."

Betty Roan said...

Uh oh! But he looks so innocent.

Sharon said...

One day you will wake up and the feeder will be gone! Smart fella!

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Haha! Cute series !

sweetdaysundertheoaks said...

Tex they did a great April Fool's on you! Love those Fox Squirrels. Look at that defiant little face :)

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

I swear it looks like he's laughing in that second pic! They're funny but pesky little boogers:@)

DJan said...

I chase them all the time off my porch. That guy doesn't look like he's needing any more food! Pesky but you have to admit they are just trying to get enough food to be able to waddle off! :-)

Great shots!

Rita said...

Oh, but they are so dang cute!! I just love squirrels. They're too smart for their own good, I guess. ;)

dr momi said...

All that work trying for so long....he finally got it! :-)

Donna said...

LOL, he may have a wee brain, but he still figured out how to safely have his snack!

bailey-road.com said...

Delightful shots!

Debbie said...

tree rat, 1...theresa, 0!!

it looks like he's smiling at you!!

Kelly said...

Hahaha! Dang varmints... He is cute, though...and fun to watch!

Lindsjö taxar said...

Great serie of his work to get some food....very qute.

Sylvia K said...

Busy little bugger, isn't he? Always love your squirrel shots! And, yes, I do think he's smiling just for you!

sylvia

Inger said...

Sorry, but varmints as portrayed by you are absolutely and totally adorable!

Angela said...

He's laughing at you in the second picture! lol I see too he don't look like he fits through the holes anymore so he had to knock it down so he could smell those wonderful seeds in one of the pictures! lol

A Quiet Corner said...

OMG! T, I can't believe you did this post! I've got one big fat mama jumper (literally) who launches himself from a tree or strategically from a small hill and refuses to give up until he's in/on/around my feeder like that! Where did we get those feeders? My son wants one for his new yard...help! I know you told me once before, but got rid of my desktop where I had it saved!!!...:)JP

FOREST SNAPPER said...

They wont give up will they,but they make great photo shots

enjoy your day
Peter

Barb said...

I know what you mean - why then do we so love photos of them?

Becca said...

Aw, but they're so cute!

Andrew said...

Wonderful to see how confident squirrels can be. I have one of Chester's finest to share in a few days... he literally ran up to me begging for food.
I could have picked him up.

Denise said...

Yep, the saying, "Where there's a will, there's a way" comes to mind. Little rascals!

Manzanita said...

This is really special. You caught not only the heart but the soul of the moment. Love, Manzi

Betty Manousos@ CUT and DRY said...

i always love your squirrel shots!
haha...cute little guys.

this made me smile.

Patty Woodland said...

But oh so cute!

quies said...

Nice series.
I guess Kathy said it all:
persistent, craft, smart and cute.

Have a nice evening!

Michelle Renee said...

No...no..no...naughty squirrel. On the bright side, it made for some great pics. :)

Rohrerbot said...

Naughty. Brilliant. I'm not sure which....but someone had a nice meal:)

Robin said...

T, Ha, finally figured out a way of getting to the seed without having to hang upside down!!

Karen said...

Cheeky little guy!

Connie Arnold said...

Great photos! Squirrels are clever, persistent but so cute!

islandwonder said...

A happy looking varmint.

Lindy MacDuff said...

Squirrels are rascals but they do provide many photo opportunities. Great captures!

Linda said...

Not many things are more fun to watch than a squirrel trying to get into a bird feeder. This pudgy little guy looks as if he's pretty successful at it.

Tammy said...

The squirrels do have the amazing ability to one up us on any attempt to keep them from the food!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,

That squirrel looks fat... He/she is enjoying the good life.
Love to you,

Mariette

Millie said...

Well you shouldn't tease them with such a great feast!

Brita said...

The cage for bird food seems to be burglar-proof. Squirrel usually tricky. Wonder how he solves the problem? / Brita

heyBJK said...

I'm sure it was already knocked down. Innocent little tree rats would never do such a thing! LOL! Thievin' varmints. Love the shots!

Tiago Braga said...

so cute and funny, ohhhhh sweet =)

Rose said...

Lorelei's mom really had the battles with squirrels when she lived near us....now she don't even try.

They are determined little fellows.

Gillian Olson said...

Squirrels are determined little critters, but amusing to watch. Great shots.

Ellie said...

They may be pests but they are cute pests. :))

Randy said...

He was on a mission. I need these today.

Bob Bushell said...

Love 'em. The squirrels are always after some food.

Giga said...

One chyba nigdy nie rezygnują z dotarciem do celu.Cudne zdjęcia i to co na nich. Pozdrawiam.*** They probably never give up in reaching the goal. Wonderful pictures and squirrel them. Yours.

Tricia @ Bluff Area Daily said...

OMGosh, that's hilarious! it knocked the darn thing down but can't get the seeds out... dad-gum them lil *($#(*#(*#@$&(* =)

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

LOL, I guess they got tired of the aerial view when eating!!

RoeH said...

If there's a will there's a way. Those little guys are smart.

Katie @Pinke Post said...

Sneaky, both him finding the treats and you for catching the moment!

Candy C. said...

I guess he finally ate so much bird seed that the holder just couldn't take the extra weight! ;-)

wildlifewatcher said...

Hi TexWisGirl, I am wondering if the squirrel brought the feeder down or if a raccoon did earlier? In any event, the squirrels do get into the feeders quite often. So far (knock on wood) no squirrel on my new feeder - far away from trees and the area where the squirrels live. Ha we will see...
Have a super day tomorrow and a nice coming week.

eileeninmd said...

Ha, they made it easier for themselves to eat all your birdseed. They are little devils.

Hilary said...

Victorious little fart. He's good at what he does. :)

Tracy said...

ahhh, they are so clever aren't they? Little buggers...

Tammy said...

Well, misery loves company :) I'm glad to see I'm not alone in fighting the battle of the squirrel brigade. My feeders seem to be on the graound as much as in the air :/

sharon said...

Little stinkers!! They will do anything for a bite to eat!

Linda R said...

Thats not to nice of him now is it!! But he looks like he is enjoying himself..

Hugs, Linda

Fjällripan said...

They are so cute!!

Tina@WhatWeKeep said...

Complain all you want, but I know you love him. ;)

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Bet that little guy ate so much that he had a huge tummy ache!!!!! Those squirrels will do anything to reach the bird feeders, won't they???? Dang it...
Hugs,
Betsy

lisa said...

Smart little one!
These are fantastic shots.

missing moments said...

Yep .. at it again!

Furry Bottoms said...

T, did the feeder bang the squirrel in the head on its way down? Wondering why the varmint is trying to get food from the end, not from inside. OH WAIT, that would be because it is too... fluffy to fit in the hole? :) Beautiful pictures!

Nancy Claeys said...

It could be worse... it could be a raccoon. Been there, done that. ;)

latebloomerbuds said...

Determined suckers! Margie

Michelle said...

It's a good thing they are so cute.

Marie said...

Such a pretty squirrel! I am guessing that is a trap he is so expertly avoiding getting caught in!

Barb said...

But - cute photos of the crook!

Farm Girl said...

Just the other day when you posted a picture of the squirrel in the bird feeder my son asked me if they ever break them by laying in them? I said I didn't know. I will show them what they do they can get them out of the tree.

Amila Kanchana said...

It's not so bad when a thief is that cute, eh?

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Pesky little brat...he's just too dang cute! Great captures, Theresa!

Dianne said...

Catherine said...

xo Catherine

Deb said...

That Janie Girl said...

Little twerp knock down the bird feeder? They are so sneaky!! (but cute. you can't say they're not cute.)

Carletta said...

Cute series!
I love that one with his eyes closed and his nose up to the end. It's as if he is just as fasinated with the aroma. :)
I love the pesky squirrels!

Daniel LaFrance said...

Well it seems and appears you've been outwitted. ;-)

Clever little rascals!!!

Breathtaking said...

Squirrels will be squirrels!!
You got some fantastic photos from his crafty cravings,so I suppose it
was worth it,--glad your gorgeous
feeder seems intact!

BlueShell said...

LOl...what is he trying to do? Eat?
Om my!
That is funny!

HUGS
BShell

Laura~Pretty Pix said...

What a cutie! Wonderful captures!

Comment1 said...

Love that picture with his eyes closed! Looks like a wine taster taking in the scents.

Coloring Outside the Lines said...

That is one VERY determined squirrel- he is kinda cute though!

Haddock said...

A real busy body.
Lovely pics.

ladyfi said...

So very adorable!

Annette said...

Very cute series of pictures.

Mary Howell Cromer said...

I must confess, as I have before and will do again...I LOVE those Red Fox Squirrels and I can see by the images of this delightful looking one, that they are just as naughty as the Gray Squirrels are on our land. Those feeders... I even have Squirrel and Raccoon baffles to stop them and up they come anyway...
Dang Varmints...RIGHT~

barbara l. hale said...

He looks rather pleased with himself. That's a squirrel for you.

Jeremy said...

These squirrels remind me of naughty schoolboys who've been caught up to no good by the headmaster, with that guilty look on their faces. Lovely photos of the cheeky food-thief!

pattisjarrett said...

I find my feeder for peanut splits on the ground more often than not.

rkbsnana said...

Second time today I have seen the word "drats"

CameraCruise said...

Great shots!
Looks like he's smiling on the second one.

Cindy said...

Wonderful reason to have taken some fabulous photos. Still no excuse, he should have continues hanging upside down to eat, right?

Joe said...

The squirrel looks pleased with it's self.

georgettesullins said...

Caught in the act!

LB @ Bullets And Biscuits said...

hahah...reminds me of a kid playing one of those block puzzle games where you stick money in it, haha

Judy said...

That is too funny, looks like he has a feast going on.
