I hope you like them.
Yep, we like them! Neat shots of a very unusual set of ears. There are so many types of squirrels in the world, but Otis says they are all potential members of his Giant Army of Squirrels and will eventually rule the world.

Regards!....you are always welcome to post squirrels over here!

Does Otis give credit for recruiting?

I saw these squirrels in PYP and invited STEEWPHOTOGRAPHY to join us here.

Yep, he sure does! Congratulations for your outstanding service to the Squirrel Thread and squirrels worldwide!
Few of these are awarded!


We all need to be inviting more posters to our site! Good job Photolady! Otis also swigged down a big Budweiser and tipped it in your direction saying "This Bud is for you Photolady!"

"Not a problem here...the wire cutting crew is on their way!"


Regards!

That's why they have the "Fat Box" here. When they are too fat to squeeze out they know they have had enough fat!

I was eating supper when my wife shouted "Look at a deer glaring at the squirrel". The weather was unpleasant, but I grabbed my camera and did the best I could.

They were working as a team to rob and plunder!

Spout checking day.....

"Dangerous work but it has to be done!"


"Maybe gnawing the end off will release some sap?"

That reminds me of a day last year when we had torrential rain and a severe windstorm going on. You could barely see the woods from my windows and trees were swaying like crazy. Through it all a lone squirrel was on a feeder for almost an hour and never acted like there was anything unusual going on.

"I know I'm gonna do wrong and you can't stop me!"


"That's way too close...get back or I'll bad breath you to death!"


"Relax, I was just kidding you!"


We need more squirrels here!

Regards!

I think you guys are ... nuts.

But it seems lighthearted enough.. so I'm passing on what I saw on Facebook today -- the University of Central Florida is giving out honorary Master Of Squirrels degrees today.

Click that and see if you can get your diploma:

A couple from today: I put sap out, peanuts out and Black Oil Sunflower seeds and only saw two squirrels come to eat.
