Nothing like being Squirrely once in a while ---



"Sometimes, I feel like a nut..."


"...This beats Fischer Nuts any ol' day!"


"Now, how do I get outta here? I know, I know...same way I came in!!"


"On second thought...I'll just stretch out; take a siesta."


"You don't say...'The Chicago trees are on strike? Must be...not nuts here."


"Al Gore is right....the ozone layer is thinning out."

[this squirrel is on the top of a power pole!!!]
Each Fall, when the Pecans get ripe, it's always the same scenario...I love pecans, but never climb the tree to pick 'em. I wait for them to plummet to the ground and try and beat the squirrels; picking them up. Often the squirrels win!!!

  1. Hi there - great set of pictures - used to watch squirrels back in the UK (different species to these) and I used to really like them.

    I would have thought that they have a bit of an advantage in the nut gathering stakes!

    Thanks for the comments on both blogs - I'f been away from home for week and I'm just getting caught up!

  6. Great funny post Anni. I hope Squirrel Queen sees it!
    You certainly took some beautiful pictures.
    Speaking of pictures, Today's paper states all the Wolf Camera stores in our city will be closed? This is sad news since it is where I have my camera serviced. I hope it keeps on clicking w/o problems

  10. Great photos of hairy squirrel activities. They are fun critters to watch. Hopefully they're not too noisy. Sometimes the squirrels in our area are very chatty with each other.

  11. Cute captures Anni!
    Few critters are more entertaining that squirrels. You got some great shots of these guys. Beating them to the pecans must be a real challenge.
    Tell M&M not to worry, SQ will always find those squirrels. LOL!
    Happy Weekend!

  15. Welcome back to the hunt!!!

    Great captures of those squirrels!

    It's funny how when I visit people's sites for photo hunt I often think 'why didn't I think of that?' - we have about 6 squirrels that visit our bird feeders on a regular basis. It would have been perfect for the theme (and saved a ton of hunting through the archives).

    Have a super Sunday!

  16. We do the same thing!! The ones on the ground are still green so who knows if we will get a good crop or not this year! The squirrels may get to them before we get back for our monthly trip home!
