Camera-Critters #31



We had two absolutely gorgeous days on Monday and Tuesday of this week. I longingly stared out the door to my office wishing I were out there taking advantage of the last warm days of the year. Unfortunately though, money is a necessary evil, and I had to remain at work. I did, however, decide to take advantage of my full lunch break, grab the camera, and head back to the paths in the woods at the back of the park. When I arrived at the paths, I was amazed. It looked as if the woods were literally 'alive' and moving. Upon closer staring with my jaw hanging open examination, I realized this section of the woods was actually full of squirrels. The more I stared, the more squirrels I saw (Gray Squirrels and Fox Squirrels). After a bit, I thought to myself, "Duh Misty! Pictures!" It was right at that moment, this one decided to be the perfect model.

"You got all your nuts gathered already?
You that blogging chic I've heard about?
Gonna put my picture on your Sony Vaio?"

"Did you hear about Chip? He lives down the path a bit.
Someone broke into his tree and stole his stash!"

"If it woulda been my stash, why I woulda
gave em a big ol' sock to the teeth is what I woulda done."

"Well, I better get back to it. I'd whistle while I work,
but..."

Misty: What neat captures of the fun squirrel. I had seven greys in Stow right in front of me and one came really close while climbing around.

Wow those are great. He looks like he's taking advantage of the warmer weather to stock up. We've been having some unseasonably warmer temps here in Massachusetts as well.
