Grape Expectations
Grape Expectations

It started off feeding one or two squirrels...then 4 or so...now, we have a "herd" that stops by daily for a handout. This is one of our favorites - an old gal we've dubbed Jeffie - who not only favors pecans over walnuts but expects a few grapes for dessert...no, they're not too spoiled.... :)

Happy Wednesday all - make it a good day!

SPOILED as spoiled can be Val, I could ship you down a crate full of wild red squirrles, they love to take over the feeders, throwing out seed they don't like, then sit and scold that the feeders are empty, lol..
One of the better captures of these guys I have seen here Val!!
You better whip them up something special for tomorrow, lol...

What a FANTASTIC close-up and marvelous wildlife (sort of:~)) composition, Val! The details, clarity and lighting are exceptional. Maybe I should start to feed them, too,LOL! Actually, my husband would not be too happy about that - he keeps trying to outwit them since they are so adept at emptying the bird feeders...Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours and be sure to save some leftovers for your furry friends!

Oh, this is just precious, Val. I put up a bird seed wreath last winter, and the birds loved it. Then one squirrel starting coming... and took it over. Then our Golden, Bailey, started staring out the window and wouldn't move. Then the birds came back, yelling for the squirrel to move on. Then Bailey started barking. Then.... It became really fun to watch.

The story is as cute as the portrait is.

My Dad had the same kind of situation. His favorite would come up on the step and bam on the sliding glass door if Dad didn't bring him the snacks fast enough.

So precious and so wire sharp! Wonderful lighting and detail. And, wonderful kindness of your part, feeding the squirrels. With the dying of our pecan-hickory tree and few nuts the tree(s) put out each year, our squirrels are trying crafting ways to either jump to the bird feeders that are on a wire from the house to a tall tree, or walking like the rats on a hire wire, very carefully to the feeders. I just cannot afford to give the squirrels my bird seed --too expensive. I suspect yours like the grapes both for the fruit and the seed.

Congratulations for your adorable POTD!!!

Ms. Jeffie must be in pecan 7th heaven by now knowing she is famous? Next time we see her she will probably have on grape sized studded diamond ear rings and walnut shaped dinner rings!!

I hope this goes gold. She will want it for her front teeth! HA! :D

Big Congratulations. Pictures, Images and Photos to you BOTH!

Always your,
