Here are a few perspectives of squirrels that were raiding the feeders this past weekend. These are healthy looking bandits and I'm sure that it has lots to do with that high protein diet.

HEAD ON (how can one not love a mug like that)

Top stuff Norm! These little buggers look like they've been to the groomers. You sure you're not running a wildlife beauty salon?:-)As usual, they're all top notch. Cheers........thekman.

That third one is priceless. It looks to me like he is patting his full tummy and thanking you for the fine meal.:-)

Very good Normcar. And #3 is the one for me also. He's really cute in that pose. I guess I'll have to try out some of these as I have a yard full of them. Nests are in half a dozen trees in my b.y. They are really fun to watch chasing each other up and down the trees, crawling all over the "squirrel proof feeders" that sometimes are not squirrel proof. And they can really make a mess getting the seeds out of a pine cone but you still can't help but like the little guys. Again, great pictures

Thanks all, as always I appreciate the time you take to have a look. Houston, definitely get some shots of those squirrels. I personally think they are extremely entertaining but the can get a touch noisy from time to time. One of them kept chattering for a half-hour non-stop and I was getting into next-door-neighbor's-dog-barking mode.

That third shot is just so damned cute. Though my favorite is the second one.
You have the eye, patience, and timing to capture some great lighting effects.
