Little Red

UH-OH! CameraGirl saw me!

Little Red just sneaked up the back of the fence and is now heading down.

Hurry!!


Got it!!

I was waiting for the local red-bellied woodpecker to arrive, trying to entice it with peanuts in the shell.  But this little scamp...

YUM! Got any more?

wanted peanuts too...and would not go away no matter how many peanuts it stole and ate!

I am linking to  Saturday Critters HERE.

Nice shots!

The colour of this little guy's tail glows in the first and last photos. What a cutie.

What a cute photo's you made of the cheeky little one.

What a super series. You are so lucky that Little Red did not scoot away before you could get these great shots. I adore the little fellows, but they wreak havoc in my yard. I am changing my feeders one by one to the ones that keep them out and then putting out goodies for them. Hope it works.

Whenever I see one of these pesky little critters, I think of this poem:

Like a small grey
coffee-pot,
sits the squirrel.
He is not

all he should be,
kills by dozens
trees, and eats
his red-brown cousins.

The keeper on the
other hand,
who shot him, is
a Christian, and

loves his enemies,
which shows
the squirrel was not
one of those.

They are so cute. Almost cuter...watching my little Pit Bull lay in front of the slider watching them, so intently. Nothing better in the world to chase, for her. If they would just hang around and play, they'd have a new play mate.

So cute! They love those peanuts don't they ? :)

Karen S. said...

He'll be your friend for life! Keep the treats coming!

Debbie said...

Jeevan said...

Lovely.

Christine said...

Super squirrel pictures! Love this wee guy!

Cute squirrel pics!

Lowell said...

This is a cute squirrel. Our squirrels (except for the Foxtails) don't have such bushy tails and look more like the rodents they are! :)

GreenComotion said...

Tina,
Little Red is adorable.
Very beautifully photographed!
Have a Happy Weekend!!
Peace :)

Mary Hone said...

What a cutie! How can you not want to give him more peanuts.

Yogi♪♪♪ said...

Squirrels are such unapologetic opportunists.

William Kendall said...

What a cute devious little rascal!

Sylvia K said...

Oh, yes!! I have one of these that comes to visit every day and sits on my doorstep -- literally -- to look inside and get my attention and will continue ti sit there until I put out some peanuts!! I think Yogi is right!! Opportunists indeed!! Fun shots for the day though -- maybe they think they should be paid for their photographs!!

Great Photos. Those little guys can wipe out the vittles quickly.

Anne Hagman-Niilola said...

Cute squirrel!

Ruth Hiebert said...

Cute little critter,but can also be very annoying.

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

He is awfully cute for a thief ... They do put on a great show!

Maks said...

I love squirells! They're sweet! I greet! :)

cieldequimper said...

So sweet! The red ones are native here but they are being ousted by the non native grey ones...

Jacquelineand.... said...

Tree rat! No matter how cute, that's what they are! ;-)

Revrunner said...

Ought to survive the winter then. :-)

RedPat said...

Kathy said...

They love peanuts almost as well as acorns!

edenhills said...

So adorable! For some reason, I haven't seen many squirrels this winter.

Rose said...

That is just too funny!

Anita Davis said...

Hahaha, at least you got some really cute shots to show for the adventure.

Kay said...

It's not a woodpecker but you caught it beautifully. The light is wonderful and your shots do its thick, beautiful fur justice. It is a cutie.
