Love the second one Charlie.

My version of Otis destroyed a squirrel proof (supposedly) feeder earlier in the week.

I got a replacement which looks remarkably like yours.

Thanks Em. I have the feeders stocked with regular seeds and safflower seeds which squirrels don't like because they are bitter.He did make it to the feeder sniffed it and left.--charliezap

I'm glad you did, this is one of the most interesting 'squirrel on feeder' images. The focus may not be quite as perfect as the first one, but the story says so much and the split the baffle causes between the squirrels eye and his mouth is placed just perfectly.

Neat shots Charlie......and you are right, Otis has scouts everywhere! I see he is even doing advertising to swell his ranks, and take over the world. After they eat out all the wiring harnesses of the world, we will all be walking.

Regards!

Thanks all for the comments.-Right now I'm watching a storm coming up the coast.At first it was going to be nothing maybe 1-3" but it looks like a borderline blizzard for some along the easternmost coastal regions.Maybe 6" for me which is nothing compared to last week.--charliezap
