He really didn't know any better...



Squirrels are a regular fixture on our wooded property, and they love to eat from our feeders. Sometimes they startle me while I'm doing dishes by running along the deck railing right past the kitchen window.

The thing is, when Mr. Squirrel stopped to pose here, he was setting himself up.



Ummm... little dude? We could cook you on that black thing behind you if we wanted. Squirrel on the barbie, anyone? (Just kidding!)

Kallen - How is it that they manage to look so angelic, even in the midst of eating all your bird seed? Crafty little boogers, they are.

Red - It's funny, our squirrels set on the deck like that so often, with one paw or the other tucked up to the chest like that. I think it's hilarious.

Kelly - I know, but I can't help it!

Michele - Yes, the squirrels are most precious.

Shelley - The innocent look is surely all an act!
