I just had to post this. It’s snowing outside right now and Laura and I have been watching one of the few gray squirrels in the area pick through the fallen bird seed in our fenced area of the back yard. He’s all fluffy and seems to be enjoying himself. Since I didn’t want him to get too comfortable, I decided to open the back door to shoo him away. I wanted to, sort of, startle him, so he’d get the message and head back to the woods. Well, he got as far as about ten feet away and climbed the fence. Apparently, he was waiting us out. That’s when I grabbed a few photos of him.
Pretty cute, isn’t he? Here’s another one for you.
It’s funny, when he runs through the snow, his body acts like a plow. Everything is so fluffy right now it seems like he’s half tunneling and half trying to stay afloat. Perhaps I’ll head outside for some more shots. I’ll likely just wait until Monday morning to take some pictures of the aftermath of the impending blizzard. That’s going to be a fun one. We’ve yet to have our four-foot fence completely covered. I have a feeling we may see that in the near future.
