Keep warm little one






"To be admitted to Nature's hearth costs nothing. None is excluded, but excludes himself. You have only to push aside the curtain. "

Oh man that squirrel looks cold to me. I could not access your last post.......

Leedra said...

How did I just happen across this blog? It is new? I thought you just had the 2. This one I did not know about.

Like the black squirrel in the snow.

Hi Darla - the poor thing looked cold to me as well. Is the post you talking about from 2 days ago?

Leedra - you found me! I've had this blog a little less than a year. Glad to have you visit me here as well! In retrospect - I should've just had one blog for nature, wildlife and birds.

Oh now you've found my weakness... I just love those little black squirrels! fishing guy has posted some great photos of them also and I have never had the priv. to see one..just the greys we have here in pa. The way you have captured him in the crook of that tree, nestled into the snow makes him look protected. love the quote, too! Perfect! Thanks, you made me smile!!

I love it when squirrels kind of wrap up in their tails like they were big fluffy mufflers. This was perfect to look at with "Evening Falls" playing. Wonderful photo and nice choices in music!

Shellmo said...

Rambling - thank you!!

Tina- glad you like them! They are very active around our log cabin!

Bennie & Patsy - thank you for stopping by! I think the red squirrels are cute too!

Deborah - I like how the do that to w/ their tails! Glad you like the music - I'm never quite sure if people find it annoying or not.

This is one of my favorite photo's from you. Those little black squirrel devil's find a way to get on all of my feeders. I need to post some photo's, as they are fat as cats!

Oh how sweet. I hope he finds a warm home.

Such a great picture. Just perfect! But so much for protective camoflage.

No snow here yet. We're in the "tropics", as the Lake Superior lake effect doesn't quite hit us. You wouldn't know it by the end of winter, though. Then there's plenty of snow!

Awwww, how precious is this! At least it has a nice little fur coat to keep it warm. :-)

Is that a BLACK squirrel? I've never seen one! We have some white squirrels in this area and they are neat to see. Great photography!
