That looks like one well-fed squirrel!

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

If that was yesterday, I know he was enjoying the sunshine on his little body along with the feast of sunflower seeds!! blessings ~ tanna

Allison said...

Sunflower seeds won't attract them enough here, so we're going all out and buying dried corn cobs from our friend the farmer. He says he'll set some aside for us this fall and then I plan find a dead branch to serve as a stake, stick on a corn cob like my mom does and wait for the little cuties to appear. I just want one faithful squirrel... that's all I'm asking!

It's the best kind of high!

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, As always, a great series of photos! I think these "series photos" are your specialty! Thank you for stopping by John's Island and your comments. So far, you are the only one who has voted for one of the dahlia photos! Luv it and thanks! Hope you have a great weekend. John PS I was in Texas visiting family for a few days (near Houston). Gotta luv the Lone Star State!

Giga said...

Mogłabym się na nią patrzeć i patrzeć. Jest śliczna. Pozdrawiam.

Beth @ E. lizard Breath Speaks said...

some one said something about drinking wine - that would be scary with a squirrel & wine??! iffy situation indeed. ( :

parker said...

You sure treat your guests to the Ranch nice. Even serving their meals in bowls big enough to sit in! No body goes away hungry around your place!

bon bon said...

his little belly is so red compared to ours. :)

bailey-road.com said...

It appears he's claimed his spot!

Jeanne said...

Raindrops and Daisies said...

He's a hungry little fellow
and if he's not careful will
be a very fat little fellow!!

Lovely set of photos Teresa

Kathy said...

I'm so glad you actually like the squirrels. So many people (including my present roommate) hate them and try to run them away from the bird feeders. I say there should be food for all!

Maple Lane said...

To be so pesky, squirrels sure are cute!
Enjoy your Saturday.

Gail said...

Right at home.

Our dogs and squirrels play the hunt and hide game for pecans.

Misty DawnS said...

So cute! I love photographing squirrels because they are always so full of personality.

Beth said...

He is so cute!!

georgettesullins said...

He looks all warm in the sunlight. Very cute photos.

nic.b van es said...

die zijn wel heel erg lekker.

holdingmoments said...

He looks like he's enjoying that.

Wayne (Woody), whatever said...

Ahhh, a nice meal in the warm sunshine. Other than a nice cold drink, what could one ask for?

Karen said...

What a gutsy! He's an interesting colour. A distant cousin is on my blog today!

Judy said...

Great shots of him having a feast!

Stephanie said...

Cute and see you have sunshine.

Janey and Co. said...

A fed squirrel is a happy squirrel..

don said...

A fine shot of these smart little creatures. Last night I spilled about half a handful of peanuts on the rug by my chair...so I pick up the rug with the nuts and took it to the front door. Remembering that these nuts have some salt, I threw them into a dense evergreen where I thought the squirrels would not find them. WRONG...this morning they spotted them right off and were crawling all over the evergreen seeking a nut or two. I threw out some non-salted, in-the-shell to try to distract them, but it didn't work very well. :-)

Jo's World said...

We get upset with the little beggars when they monopolize the bird feeder, spring, summer and fall. But in the winter when the view is bleak, they are out there, romping around, playing games and somehow, then, we don't get nearly so angry with them. We watch them tear around, and what birds there are, don't even seem to mind them that much.

Jo, Stella and Zkhat

Ian Holland said...

Diet time?

Patty Woodland said...

Looks like a well fed squirrel

A Quiet Corner said...

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

He's adorable and well fed for sure. I swear that second picture to the last looks like the little bandit has a cigarette in its mouth. You're not encouraging that habit are you ;>)

Jennifer A. Jilks said...

What a cute little guy! I like feeding them. What the heck, they steal anyway.
Our squirrels have come out of hibernation with the warm spell. Cold again, and they will go down again soon!
The red squirrels are tough and don't snooze.
Cheers from Cottage Country!

joeh said...

Loved watching the squirrels in the feeder except the little pigs keep the birds away!

Roan said...

He looks like a happy squirrel. By the way, I'm back on Rubbish. Not a fan of Wordpress. ;(

Paula said...

I thought the same thing Inger said. It looks like he/she is smiling in one of the photos.

missing moments said...

Greedy little guy. Mine spend so much time trying to figure out how they can fly off the branches over to the feeders. Occasionally they make it! Little rascals. There is enough on the ground from the birds tossing out what they don't like. Guess the squirrels don't like it either! LOL

MTWaggin said...

Certainly was enjoying the meal!

Jidhu Jose said...

lovely

Fly on green leaf
