Awww so cute. I hope he doesn't fall from his perch! We have a very tame red squirrel here. I got about 2 feet away and he kept on foraging for seeds in the grass. I wondered if he's deaf.

Connie Smiley said...

Now that is just too cute! I thought maybe he was asking the blessing for his Thanksgiving meal.

Awww, poor baby. He looks so cold. Actually, he looks like he's praying. lol What a cool shot with all that wispy orange foliage surrounding the little prayer warrior. :)

Marie said...

Love the peek through those pine needles at this adorable little squirrel!

Interesting shot! He really looks very chilly, or is he sleeping..

This and the "Tail Lighting" are really nice images. I'm trying hard not to just take "field guide" shots of birds and other animals (I still take them as well, if possible!) - but these kind of more "interpretive" images are interesting me more and more.

I watch these guys at work gather food. They deserve a nap between chores.

You need to scamper down to Florida for the winter. We have plenty of Nuts here.

I love your shot Brian, this wee squirrel is so adorable and needs a blanket... an electric blanket! :-)

Have a wonderful weekend Brian!
