The Young Squirrel N5513e

I saw people feeding snacks to the squirrels in Minoru Park.

 

There are two kinds of squirrels in the park.

 

Some of them quickly went to bury the food under the bushes. Those are the older ones. Some of them will eat it immediately, like the one in my picture. They are the younger ones.

 

These are different habits of different generations. Young people tend to enjoy life more. They will consume and spend the money for instant pleasures while the older generation tends to save more.

 

Actually may be the reverse should be the way it is. When you are old, you should spend the money or otherwise we will end up with six digits in the bank before your last breath. Or at least we should make the donations to the people or stray pets that need care or help in our last days.
