Got an Umbrella??

Got an Umbrella??

Taken thru an upstairs window, I thought I was pretty clever attaching a window bird feeder to it hoping to foil the squirrels. Two stories up, with a group of people watching him from the inside, he shamelessly raided the birdseed - in the rain, to boot. Nothing slows them down.... :)

Val, this is wonderful; he just thought that you were providing him with a "restaurant" with a better view!! :) Love the photo, you've totally captured the personality of this little imp!!

Oh uh! LOL! Love the expression, you've caught him red-handed and sure knows you can't get to him through the window glass, so he's posing for you. You'll have to excuse the rascal who's trying to add-up to his rainy day stash. Great shot Val!

He probably wants to come in where the REAL stash is!! We had one walking the telephone wire to the roof then launching himself at the feeder. It was hilarious because he was always a bit short, but he was not deterred and we often saw him flying past the window!

What an amazing capture, Val. Your window must be so clean, allowing the tiny details to come through. Excellent catch.

Holy Cow, Val, how adorable this little raider is! I am sure he will be back often! You commented so fast on my Groper shot I didn't even have the title up yet! I won't be posting much until after Christmas as I am going home to NY to spend both holidays with family! I want to wish you a safe, healthy and Happy Holiday Season to you and yours!

What a marvelous, marvelous close-up capture of him, Val! And while I'm sure you didn't do this on purpose, what a great photo op this provides, especially for those with clean windows! They are so devilish and clever, they'll stop at nothing! Love the way he is watching YOU!

You've just gotta love this! I think these li'l critters are as shrewd as any on the planet and the ones here in the Lone Star State are certainly amongst the most cunning of them all. They have teased and tormented my dogs for years and trick them every time! Except for one female German Shepherd, Zelda, who would not tolerate them, or even a butterfly or bee, on her property and killed several. This is a brilliant capture and presentation, Val!
