Nutty McSquirrel


Remember that post I did back in October about a tree at our local lake that had a big hollow filled with acorns?

Yeah, didn't think so.

Anyway, I went on a bike ride Sunday afternoon and happened to see a squirrel poking his head out of the hollow! I have a new empathy for people trying to photograph Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster. By the time you fumble for your camera you've almost missed the action -- and what you do capture is blurry!

In any event, Nutty McSquirrel has obviously been eating lots of the acorns. Here's a comparison between the number in October and the number in January:


Come to think of it, Nutty McSquirrel better go easy. There are still a couple of months of winter left to go.

wow that's awesome! I remember seeing that with my own eyes, he definitely has been going at it pretty hard. I think you might have to stock some nuts for him so he doesn't run out!

Yep...better stock up! Great pictures, despite the hyper subject. :)

they don't call 'em squirrels for nothin'! i bet he has another buried stash somewhere... judging my the digging furry critters i've seen in this neck of the woods.

Maybe you should leave some sandwiches?

Barbara B. said...

PG, yes, Jenny Craig spokes-squirrel would be a good idea!

HotCup, hadn't thought about multiple stashes!

CIP, Sandwiches -- haha! :)

Rev SS said...

well, if not sandwiches .. you could leave some more acorns or nuts.

I like Nutty McSquirrel much better than the ones who like to live in my attic. It's fun to look at the difference in nuts squirreled away!
