The 1 Eyed Squirrel Returns

The squirrels have been raiding the bird feeder a lot. Sue sends MaryAnn out to chase them off. But they don't stay gone for long. This guy is the only one that will let me get close to him. Here is another view of him 22 seconds later.

    Oh my goodness is he cute or what!!!! The one I took a shot of today LET ME PET HIM. I think he was someones pet for real. Obviously a short , chunky lady with glasses heh. This is a perfect shot. I'm going back to the park tomorrow to try to catch him in better light.

    Woah. That is a Disturbing Small Furry Animal. Extra points for the evil blind eye. I'm guessing that's why he let's you get so close :P He looks like he's plotting your demise, in his own furry devious way...

    So, what does the squirrel smell like?
  • TomLA 10y

    Smells like chicken.

    No, actually I was close enough to smell it but don't remember any smell. Next time I will try scratch and sniff.

    Thanks everyone. Each time I look at this I am surpised how close this guy let me get.

    Beautifully detailled shot.
    I notice how he's keeping patrially behind the feeder (and keeping his (only) eye on you too).

    I have a love-hate relationship with those pesky squirrels. I scold them from my window when they raid my bird feeder, but they're so darn cute even when they're wreaking their mischievous havoc. : p This squirrel definitely looks very Mr. Burns to me... "Excellent!!!"
  • schmincy 6y

    I love him.
