Squirrel Adventures

This year we have a couple of squirrels in our yard.  So far they have managed to avoid the coyotes, foxes, hawks, owls, and assorted other predators.  Sometimes they visit our birdfeeders...


"Here I am!  Look at me!  I'm so cool."


"Hmm ... there seems to be food in this thing."


"Om nom nom ..."


From the looks of this pose, squirrels are made of liquid...


... which occasionally drips off the edge.

What's the difference between a hawk doing a faceplant and a squirrel doing a faceplant?
Hawk: "This. Never. Happened."
Squirrel: "Ha ha ha!  Did you that?  Wow, I fell ass over teakettle!  Hey, y'all, watch THIS!"

This seems to be a more secure position.


"Maybe if I hide in here, nobody will see me."


"If I remember correctly, there was a tree up there."


The squirrel pauses briefly before scampering away.
