A Varmint for Guest Heart Thursday


Slightly blurred, but his nose made a cute little heart.  No, I did not retouch this photo - I  think the motion blur did it.

A heart to start my day. Why thank you.

Tracey from Haiku.You.Do said...

Well, I'll be~ I wouldn't have noticed that but it sure does. What a cutie. I took some images of a squirrel the other day too but haven't edited them yet. I wonder if my fella has a heart shaped nose too? :)

Catherine said...

What a terrific heart nose! Adorable!

I love squirrels. I know for you they are vermin.. but i think them so cute. In St. James's park London..they come up to you and one can feed them.
Here in Central lisbon in the park of 'Monsanto' we have the red squirrel that dissapeared and is now back again.
fantastic photo of this rather big fellow.

In that second picture his nose is a perfect heart shape.

I look and think I can touch his hair.

Sandra said...

so sweet and not a button nose but a heart nose... i did not see the heart until i read your post.

Lois Evensen said...

Yes, he's a cutie. Looks like he was posing for you. :)

Daryl said...

it does indeed ... sweet little rodent ...

Leave It To Davis said...

Okay, confess...you doctored that nose up, right? Tell the truth now....no squirrel I ever saw had a heart on his nose....I've seen a few people wearing their heart on their sleeve, but never a squirrel wearing their heart on their nose. Very cute idea, if you did!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Oh cuteness!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

So cute, so much fun to watch, but such a pain when you're trying to feed ONLY the birds and you have a feeder ONLY for the squirrels! Greedy little creatures! Sweet heart on its nose!Nice shots too!

Linda said...

Thanks for pointing out the heart. I would have missed it. Now I'll be checking the nose of every squirrel I see. :)

joeh said...

My mom hated those guys for raiding the bird feeder. We finally just accepted it and admired them...this is a cute little guy...with a big heart!

Cute but "varmint" is also a good description. :))

Patrice said...

I've had several discussions with folks on the term varmint. Vermint, varmint, varmin... They're pesty however you choose to say it.:)

Hanne Bente said...

Clytie said...

I have a love-hate relationship with squirrels ... they make me crazy, but they are so darn cute!!!

In all my years seeing squirrels, I've never seen one with a heart-shaped nose. But then again, how often have I looked at their noses???

LOVE this heart!!!

Inger said...

You never know what you are gonna get when you develop a picture. This one is really perfect.

Squirrels are tough to photograph because they do not stay still and pose for you. You did get some interesting shots.

Margie said...

I'll be darned!

Susan said...

That is amazing! What are the odds that would happen! Wow!

Mariette VandenMunckhof-Vedder said...

Dearest Theresa,
That is a very cute squirrel with a heart nose! He's a bit fat though...
Got back safe and sound from our shopping in Atlanta. Stocking up at Whole Foods, Trader Joe's and Costco and also checking out Tuesday Morning next to Joe's. We had quite a loot.
Hugs to you,
Mariette

Jo's World said...

Thats a cutie! Your grey squirrels have that cute little gold colored under carriage and ours don't, they are more white underneath. But the heart nose is very cute.

Cheers and hugs,

Jo

Kate said...

They are "cute" but I have little love for them because they are such thieves around bird feeders!

Kateri said...

Now that is the cutest thing ever!

Carletta said...

Ahhh....now that makes me smile!
I love squirrels and these are wonderful shots and the little heart nose is as cute as can be no matter how it happened.

McGuffy Ann said...

I love squirrels. I think they are adorable and comical. Polly, my old coydog, used to chase them. It was her mission in life, up until the very end (almost 18 years). These are great pictures!

Faye said...

I know they're just tree scaling rodents, but so cute, especially when noshing on a hunk of bread or apple.

Oh my goodness, yes, the most perfect little heart nose! I'm so unknowledgeable about photoshop, have no idea why you think we might think you touched it up. Not to worry. I'll look at it again and try to figure that out :)

SandyCarlson said...

Your varmint's my kinda guy!

Becca said...

Oh I love your little heart shaped nose! You look like the same little varmint running around our place! :-)
