joeh said...

Love the eyeing whistler!

Gail said...

These photos are amazing!

People wonder how the dogs, cats and chickens here get along. You've let the secret out...FOOD!

Stephen Hayes said...

Kinda makes you wish you had a tail.

Karla Cook @ Ramblin' Roads said...

Yes, that varmint is definitely cute. I love watching the squirrels and rabbits in our yard. What a fun shot to get all the "diners" lined up in a row like that.

Lynn said...

That last little guy looks very well fed! Happy Weekend:@)

Sylvia K said...

Ah, I do love these little buggers -- squirrels and ducks!! Thanks for the smiles and giggles to wind down my day!! Have a lovely weekend and enjoy every moment!!

Rose said...

They are adorable! All of them...

I pointed out a squirrel running down the cable line to Lorelei today. She said, "OOOOh, Mamaw, a tightrope walker!"

bj said...

What kind of food do you put out for them, all in a line...:)

Daffycat said...

Goodness, that cute varmint is BUILT! Just look at those muscles!

Julia said...

Thanks to those varmint , whistlers and doves, they make your blog so popular.
Have a real good weekend.
Hugs,
JB

Revrunner said...

Does kind of remind me of the lunch lines at the schools I attended as a boy. I'm sure our teachers thought of a few of us as "varmints", too. :-)

Nancy J said...

Just have to love those bushy tails, and all together, no squabbles, they could teach some families a thing or two about mealtime behaviour!!!

Giga said...

Ducks do not be rude, divide the food of squirrels. * You are great, thank you for another first comment from me. :))). Greetings.

Brian King said...

LOL! At least there's adequate spacing at the line! Cute or not, the tree rats are still monsters. :-)

magnoliasntea said...

They ARE cute, and you run such an orderly cafe. ;)

John @ Sinbad and I on the Loose said...

Amazing how well trained they are to perform for you like this.

LV said...

How nice they can share a meal together. Squirrels are fun to watch when playing, but they are also destructive around my place. Nice seeing you.

Linda at To Behold The Beauty said...

"Cobra tail"...tee hee. The duck does seem to be questioning the presence of the squirrel in that one shot. The next-to-the last shot of the squirrel is great.

Brk Trt said...

Such a little destructive devil, and oh so lovable.

Karen S. said...

They're all like one big happy family, dining and scampering about! How fun!

John's Island said...

Hi Tex, Neat post for Saturday's Critters. Nice pics ... my favorite is the very last one. Cute!!! :-)

DJan said...

I love visiting the Ranch but am so glad not to have to feed squirrels any more! :-)

Paula said...

Play a little country music, looks like they are lined up for Boot Scootin' Boogie.

Red said...

You must have had some good rainfall as the grass is very green and the pond looks healthy.

Mildred said...

I enjoyed these pics.....cute as can be! Hope you will have a nice weekend.

Dicky Bird said...

What a cutie is right!

Munir said...

Yes that tail does look lie a Cobra.

Chandra Eswaran said...

That squirrel ain't scared of you, not even one bit.
But, like you say he/she is cute.
You have a kind heart to feed all them critters.
Bless your heart, Theresa!
Have a Great Weekend!
Peace :)

Judy said...

I saw a squirrel peaking in my slider window down in my sewing room yesterday, I was wishing I had my phone or camera with me.

Felicia said...

yes they sure are cute.

ifthethunderdontgetya™³²®© said...

What a bunch of panhandlers!

P.S. I see the Texas Cobra met an automotive end.

S. J. Qualls said...

Cute visitors - love that cracking whip tail! I see that a lot. :)

Anvilcloud said...

I agree about the cuteness of the varmint.

CelestinaMarie@SouthernDayDreams said...

Just too cute! Have a nice weekend! and stay cool!! cm

Kathy said...

That's hilarious! The squirrel is really intent on finding some of those acorns he buried in the fall. I can't find my car keys half the time, much less something I put away six months ago!

eileeninmd said...

Good morning, Tex! Cute critters in your lunch line. I love the bushy tailed varmints. And the Whistling ducks are always a favorite. I see your pond is looking nice and clear now. Thank you for linking up and sharing your post. Have a happy weekend!

Rajesh said...

Wonderful set of images. Good to see all of them together.

Gunilla Bäck said...

Your squirrels are adorable!

The squirrel is very cute! :) Have a nice weekend, Theresa!

Gayle said...

From the tiny pic I thought it was going to be a snake ;/
Fun photos.

Grantham Lynn said...

Hi. Thanks for linking me and my Stiles post. I thought I did.
Sometimes it doesn't work and I forgot to double check.
I love the "lunch line" very cute. I think I like the ducks the best they are cute and I have a thing for ducks. So much that I brought a grown Muscovey from Missouri along with the horses and donkeys and dogs. I am a little crazy. Have a great weekend.

Grantham Lynn said...

Oh one more thing. I love the 'cobra tail'. XXOO.

Debbie said...

heheh, these are so incredibly cute....and what manners all those diners have!! It's so awesome to see you today, nothing is the same without you :(

Birdman said...

Nice butt for the camera. Say Cheese!

karmnik54 said...

Wiewiórki są super:)

Janey and Co. said...

I like that you spread the food out. It makes for somewhat more peaceful dining.

HOOTIN ANNI said...

cute varmint indeed....
and love the idea of "Lunch Line"

nookworm said...

You sure know how to get their attention! Adorable squirrel.

Author R. Mac Wheeler said...

Cuties. Looks like the red algae has cleared up in your water tank

Miss Val's Creations said...

The squirrel photos are adorable! Those little rascals always crack me up.

rainfield61 said...

Oh, they know each other.

Phil Slade said...

That Whistler seems to be making sure the others don't take more than their fair share.

don said...

A very good series on the lunch time behavior of the critters. Those squirrels are inherently interesting it seems. Excellent shooting.

William Kendall said...

Those varmints sometimes seem all tail!

Cheri Savory Spoon said...

It's amazing that they all can line up together, but I guess they all have to eat.

carol l mckenna said...

Wonderful critters and all in one place! Fantastic shots!

Happy Weekend to you,
artmusedog and carol

Daniel LaFrance said...

Cracked corn and everyone's happy. The squirrel is a show all to himself with his animated tail.

Stephanie said...

Love the adorable squirrel and your Whistler shots.

Debby@Just Breathe said...

Love these shots. Cute to see them so close to each other and I love how the Whistler is checking out the squirrel!

Liz said...

Definitely a cute little varmint!

DeniseinVA said...

It's nice that they are comfortable feeding on the same 'table' :)

RedPat said...

I've missed your fellow residents, Tex! Good to see the ducks again! ;-))

Midmarsh John said...

Interesting to see the regular spaces between each diner

Terri @ Coloring Outside the Lines said...

Cute squirrely tail, but a varmint indeed! Have a great weekend!

Adam Jones said...

Love that bushy tail. That reminds me, I need to do my dusting.

Gert said...

Yep...that tail tells the story, doesn't it? I love them...they can be so entertaining!

Our photos said...

Fabulous buffet line!

Randy said...

I love that last photo!

McGuffy Ann Morris said...

You have the best place to live! You critters are so plentiful there! Thanks for sharing your wonderful photos. ❤

Stephanie Faris said...

How cute! My dog chases them around our yard. They always scurry up trees and get away. I think if she ever did catch up to one, she'd cower and run away!

Caren Gittleman said...

I absolutely LOVE squirrels and this just made my day! Cat Chat With Caren and Cody

Linda said...

Such a cool squirrel!

I didn't know squirrels played so well with others! I would steer clear of those sharp claws if I were a duck.

Lois Evensen said...

Lunch counter line up! Pretty nice of you to be such a good host. :)

Lois said...

Those varmints might be cute, but I have too many of them in my yard. Mine are the gray variety though, except every once in awhile I see a white one. I'm never quick enough with my camera though!

♥ Łucja-Maria ♥ said...

Squirrels sweet.
I wondered what they eat. Now I eat corn.
Wonderful pictures.
Greetings from Polish.

ladyfi said...

How did you get them to pose for you? ;-) So cute.

Gail Dixon said...

Great images! The Whistler looks none too pleased to share his bounty with the squirrel. Cute and colorful scene. :)

Filip Demuinck said...

Is he leaving his tail so high because he is dominant?

Greetings,
Filip

Kovács Miklós said...

Marie C said...

They are all enjoying life at Run-Around Ranch! :-)

Inger said...

Love the critters and that green, green grass.

Bethany Carson said...

Good seeing the whistlers as always. Those squirrels are cute...I am scolding myself for admiring their fur coats so much; maybe I've been around too many hunters, tanners, and seamstresses... think of the hats/gloves they could make--or rather, don't!

Michael Manning said...

I really enjoyed the last photo!

Small City Scenes said...

They know they are cute, don't they!

Weekend-Windup said...

His tail really does have a lot of personality!

Black Jack's Carol said...

That tail has the most beautiful tones and curves. it could be the scroll of a musical instrument or the figure of a nude painting. Sorry :) seem to be waxing poetic.. or something. Fun post, TexWis!

Joseph Jameson-Gould said...

Maybe you should arrange the lunch into a dinner table and see if they'll agree to your seating arrangements?
