Are cheese crackers a snack or is it considered feeding?

This time of year they bulk up to hold them through the winter if food gets scarce and they are forced to hibernate.

Looks a little soft, or is that just the fir? The cracker seems off too, but the branch is good.

Either way, it's a nice shot.

I think its a snack if its cheese, but if it were peanutbutter it would be feeding.

We had a squirl get to our suit feeder. Now that as one fat squirl!

Tomsch, from the human perspective it's a snack. From the squirrel's perspective it's definitely feeding time! :-) This guy obviously didn't realize that with the help from human (photographers) it didn't need to bulk up before the winter...

I agree with Eric that it does look the tiniest bit soft but that doesn't detract from the cuteness factor one iota. It rings my bell.

The soft apearance is due to the lens used. These were shot with a Canon 75-300 IS which is my worst and least used lens. I did not go afield with intent to shoot these beggars. They happened upon me when they heard the cracker paper crinkle. As I was just out for a walk I had this lens on due to weight. These were hand hld at 300mm and between my cold hands and the mediocre lens it was the best I could do.

Somehow I don't think he's going to be doing much jumping from branch to branch :-)
