(You're supposed to say 'Who's There'?)
Orange you glad I didn't say squirrel???
Maybe I did. . .
A picture is worth 1,000 words. . .
Especially if one of the words is 'squirrel'. . .
and another is 'orange'. . .
I have this big ol' walnut tree right outside my Studio window - and the squirrels L-O-V-E it! It helps that I have two squirrel feeders I keep filled with corn and nuts (they don't even mind when I fill it up with walnuts off the ground - LOL!) and another feeder where I put fruit and bread pieces from my kitchen.
This 'feeder' is actually an old metal colander in a metal plant hanger. So fun to watch the squirrels hang on to it. or swing around in it. They also seem to have 'radar' and know precisely when I put any special treats in this hanging feeder.
They especially like oranges. Like this little guy:
Literally, within seconds of putting the cut up orange in the colander there were FIVE squirrels fighting to get the first wedge. Within about a minute, only three squirrels were left. One perched on top of one of the box feeders; another went on up into the tree. And then there was this fuzzy-tailed squirrel.
I especially liked how he used his little handlike-paws to hold and manipulate the orange piece.
Dontcha kind want to make him wash his 'hands'? Sticky sticky!
But he sure is having fun.
And why am I so sure it's a boy-squirrel and not a girl-squirrel.
Kinda nutty. . .
Have an Orange-tastic kind of day -
