How cute - as long as he's outside and not in the attic!

What are you thinking about little guy?

Ms. Hays said...

About the comment on my page about Vista, when you open a picture, along the top is a toolbar with File, Fix, Info, Print, etc...
Click on Fix which opens a sidebar beside the picture - that's the settings I used.

I've been using a cheap program that came w/ my digital camera that doesn't do very much of anything! I've still got to take some time to figure out my Corel Paint Shop Pro program though, but this is nice to use until I learn the harder settings! hehehe

Dorothy said...

I like your little squirrel. Wonder what he's thinking.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

That little Cutie looks so angelic!!!!! Today I watched 3 gray squirrels chasing each other up and down the trees.. It was raining like crazy--but they were paying no attention!!!

Leedra said...

He does either look deep in thought or prayer. Maybe he is praying for you to feed him.

Rambling Woods said...

Cute little guy..I love the way they put their paws kind of human like..

Darla said...

Isn't that the truth! Cute photo and you can see the black stripe on his tail.

Cedar ... said...

Dawnie said...

Hmmm, your the first I saw that got Bette Davis! I would be a little concerned to...lol She sure played some spooky roles didnt she?

Deborah Godin said...

I picture a little dialogue balloon above his head with pictures of peanuts, sunflower seeds and pine nuts in it.

Melissa Weisbard said...

What a cute little guy. It always amazes me that there are people who hate squirrels or people that are afraid of them. They are just too cute. My dog thinks their cute too, in kind of a "is that a toy" kind of way.

Charli and me said...

What a great photo. He is so cute!

Shellmo said...

Ms. Hays - Thank you! And thanks for the Vista info!

Dawnie - thanks for that quiz link. She did have some good characteristics - strong, loyal, honest but a little blunt. Whoops - I guess that's me! LOL!

Mildred - exactly!

B&P - most likely food! :-)

Dorothy - if not food - maybe a little friend? :-)

Betsy - I love watching them play!

Leedra - I think you have the most accurate assumption.

Rambling - I noticed that too - I love their little paws!

Darla - Thank you!

Cedar - yes - food choices are a big priority! lol!

Passion & Frames - I don't think the snow is going to stop for a while - big one expected on Sun.!

Deborah - now that would've been cute & funny!

Shellmo said...

Melissa- something about the squirrels that drive the dogs crazy - lol!

Charli - thank you - I think the red squirrels are cute too!

Rocky Mtn. Girl said...

That's absolutely a stunning photograph! He's adorable!!!
Made me smile! =)

Mona at Cabin and Camp said...

Yes, he's a cute one--neat picture! But the trouble with those cute ones is that they don't mind their manners. They'll chew into anything to get anywhere--including into the attic to settle in for winter. That's why we live-trap them and move them to a new neighborhood. I always wonder if any of them work their way back again and we're just shuttling the same ones out of here. It's hard to tell. They all look like cute little imps to me.

Shellmo said...

Rocky Mtn - thank you and hope you're having a restful day today!!

Mona - LOL at your relocation program! :-)

Ginger said...

Shelley:
Thats the sweetest picture!!!

Terri@SteelMagnolia said...

Isn't that just the cutest little thang!!!

spookydragonfly said...

I love your capture...and the caption to match! Perfect!

Tina said...

Wonder what he is thinking?? Most likely it has something to do with food!! and I loved the story "A raisin in the sun"! Great quote!

Knatolee said...

Your squirrel is MUCH less mangy than mine! :)

Stacey Huston said...

Alice said...

Ooh, I love this little guy! Great shot!

Primitives By The Light of The Moon said...

I just love it. Squirrels are so fun to watch!

Natural Moments said...

This squirrel photo is very adorable.

Being in Nature does give us extra space in our minds to think and watch our thoughts more clearly so we can process them and finally let them go so we have room to ponder upon another thought that may come our way.
