Red Squirrel

Lots of people talk to animals.... Not very many listen, though.... That's the problem.

Pretty little squirrel.. Ours down here are the ugly gray ones... All in all, squirrels are squirrels.. They need to stay away from my feeders!!! ha

What a cutie. I talk to them AND they usually talk back..not always nice words though. Some of the things they tell me: "put out more food" AND
"Get rid of those pesky boxers you have running around"

The squirrel looks like it is pointing, with it's whole little body. Nose to tail tip, like a good pointing dog! There's the nut!

Wonderful shot, I wonder how he manages to hold on as he is racing straight down.

Great shot of this little guy...must be a young one! I agree with the quote you have chosen for this post. Of course, I'm one of those nutty people that talk to the wildlife in my woods...Happy Spring!

Listening is a lost art. Everyone it seems is too busy ....
