Squirrelin' Around


Earlier this morning I looked out my kitchen window and saw two squirrels squirrelin' around. They were climbing in and out of the nest pictured above and chasing each other along the slender tree branches. I stood quietly in snow drifts, halfway up my calf, watching them romp in their playground while listening to a red bellied woodpecker sounding in the distance.

I've reached a milestone today with my 100th post at Naquillity. Thank you to all my readers for making my blog one of your regular stops. Sending BIG hugs your way.

I am trying to figure out where you reside. Is it New England?

At any rate, wonderful shots of nature!

Oh, you're making me HOMEsick for the squirrels with this shot, Michelle.

Great shots and congrats on 100 posts! I love to watch squirrels chasing each other around. I think that December is one of the mating seasons, so they may be producing babies up in that nest :-) Such fun...I never tire of watching them.

Congrats on the 100 posts!

For some reason, your posts are not coming through on my Google feed. I'm glad you've left a couple of comments at my place...now I'll have to figure out why my reader doesn't want me to come here!

Cheers!
