Cheeky Squirrel

Black squirrel

This cheeky squirrel climbed up the back of my husbands leg and over his shoulder to help itself to birdseed  that he'd been offering to chickadees.

I am linking to Madge's Weekly Top Shot.

We don't have black squirrels here. I've seen them in Colorado, though.

This is amazing. "Cheeky" is the right word. I tried to take some pictures of squirrels the other day at a local park and they were so skittish I didn't get one decent shot!

Lowell said...

So cute! It brings back memories of when I was a child and had a pet squirrel named "Charlie". He would climb up my dad's pants, sit on his shoulder, and dig peanuts out of his shirt pocket.

Now chipmunks, birds - I get, but this is the first time I have heard of a squirrel! Amazing!

Clever and brave little guy! Good to know he's well fed!

That squirrel really is black! I think we just have gray squirrels in New England.

Madge Bloom said...

Cute... I hope he doesn't nip if the nuts run out! Great capture... Thank you for sharing on Weekly Top Shot #61!

I'm glad he posed so nicely after stealing his treat. I haven't seen many black squirrels.

Tricia Hays said...

How cuuute! Ya know, I've seen black squirrels in blogland, but never any here in southeast Missouri... we have gray & fox squirrels, but no black ones. How long did he sit there eating out of hubby's hand?
