Squirrely squirrel

Quicky post for the evening since I not only have to pack for a short trip but I also said I would limit my online time tonight. Here's a little fella that spent half his time digging into his pecan and the other half of this time twitching his tail at my poor little Smokey, who happened to be snoozing on the grass under this squirrel. Smokey took no notice of all the squirrel yelling. Have you heard them chattering away? They can be sort of loud about it. We have tons of squirrels in the neighborhood.

This is Smokey enjoying the upper 90s temperatures in the shade and with a breeze blowing. At least the grass is cool. He loves it outside. Not to worry, it looks like he might be dead, plastered to the ground, but I assure you he is fine.

"Louis" thought this post was about him - he has often been called 'squirrelly".... :-)

This is a nice post. The picture of the squirrel in the tree is a good example of how a back lit picture should look. Nice work.

Great shot of the squirrel. Nice lighting. Smokey does look a bit "plastered".
Have a good trip and happy blogging when you return.
