I've been catching this squirrel out by the bird feeders lately. Luckily, he or she didn't scamper away when I opened the window to snap a few pics. He even stayed in the same spot for a few minutes. I haven't actually seen him eating any seeds out of the bird feeders so perhaps he doesn't care for the seeds that I fill them with and just comes by to see if there is anything new in them. The squirrel does look "healthy" though.

I do love seeing the squirrels when they hold their little paws up like this as if "clutching pearls". I can almost hear them talking with a Oliver Twist British accent saying, "please kind sir, could you spare a peanut for a poor squirrel such as I". Lol .. I guess sometimes I do feel the need to amuse myself with such silly thoughts. Hmm .. perhaps also I need to really get out more! 😏

Such a beautiful black and white photos of a healthy looking squirrel.

It's quite funny how you were imagining how the squirrel could speak, although I use to feel the same way towards my dog whenever she look me with a dull, depressed expression.
