Snackin' Squirrel/ Camera Critters

Someone has been stealing apples. Hmmmm. I wonder who it could be, don't you?

OOPS! I think I'm getting a tad to close for this critter's comfort. He doesn't look very happy about me creeping up on him, does he?

Nice squirrel. They do love apples. And will eat them sliced if you want to take the time to do that.

Mary said...

How great! I've never seen a squirrel eating apples. Maybe that is why my squirrels aren't coming to the feeders right now....I need to go pick a few of my apples and leave them nearby.

Rambling Woods said...

I didn't know that they will eat apples...So cute..

Carletta said...

I love this image. Those little claws are so cool clinging to the tree and the apple.
That second image looks like he stopped and said What?
Great capture!

Rose said...

Wonderful captures! My younger daughter captured a young squirrel that had been injured many years ago...it became gentle practically over night, and loved my husband better than anyone. The first time we had apple pie, he was sitting in the recliner with the squirrel while having his pie; she almost dug it out of his mouth. So we got a paper plate and gave her a small bite and I swear she sounded like a little pig eating it.

Rose said...

About the weight of the boat breaking the ice--I don't know if he meant all icebreakers work that way or not. I assumed he did, but you know he might not have meant that at all. He could have been referring to the Mackinaw only.

Rose said...

p.s.--I was just like you--didn't know it was the weight that broke the ice.

Impressive close up captures!

Arija said...

What a wonderful shot! So special for me as more than half my heart is still in the northern hemisphere
and air travel is not adviseable.
So thank you for letting me experience it through your eyes.

Becky and Gary said...

We have lots of apples this year, but no squirrels to eat them. Cute critter!

I think the second photo should have the caption "Don't even think about it". You are Not Getting his apple, LOL!
