Cool Grapes

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest Finalist
 
Cool Grapes
Cool Grapes
Central TX is in the midst of a severe drought and high temps over 100 degrees every day. We have our garden, feeders and birdbaths for the critters that pass thru our yard but recently discovered the birds and squirrels enjoy some chilled fruit - strawberries are their favorite but a grape will do in a pinch!

How cute! I would probably watch them all day if I could. Looks like he's really enjoying that grape and it is really nice you put food out for them. Perfect capture Valarie.

Sure didn't know they like grapes, but did know they loved my flowers! Oh, I just remembered they ate all my strawberries from my patch a few years back. But this is a very sharp and cool image! Great catch Valarie!

So I should give up on the peanuts and switch to frozen grapes? Splendid idea! A cute catch of this Eastern Fox, Valarie!

Wonderful capture, Valarie! I've never thought of taking fruit to the park...then again, I'm swarmed with just the walnuts in tow!
