Shooting Squirrel


306/365
Yesterday, the girls took the popcorn strings from the Christmas tree & recycled them as critter food, scattering the tasty bits all over the patio and doorstep. Then they waited, and watched... and no critters showed up for the feast. But this afternoon, Rocky bellied up to the buffet, and chowed down. Wally & I were amazed to see how bold he is!

Rocky is looking a bit thin for the season.

Ha! We feed our squirrels peanuts (in the shell) - they love them! As a matter of fact, today I was photographing them right outside out back door (with the slider open) and I had to stop one from coming inside (it has happened before!) Be careful!

If it weren't for the dog -- and freezing temps! -- I'd rather shoot through an open the door. As it is, I should at least clean the windows... :)

Our squirrels prefer sunflower seeds to peanuts and dried corn, but I've never tried popped corn. I love that he's right at your door!
