On one of our fall walks, Bonnie and I encountered this squirrel, happily eating a walnut:
The we discovered his 'hiding' spot, in this old tree:
|Walnuts at the top|
|Walnuts at the base|
Another squirrel - a competitor? Or is he, in fact, the same critter??? In any case, he made me laugh, clinging to that spot until the last minute. They like to play chicken with Bonnie, and often peer around tree trunks, before scampering up into the branches.
I know I promised to avoid further fall photos - but you'll forgive me these two:
