Wow, Thanks everyone for the nice comments. I was just getting ready to head out the door for a long weekend get-a-way when I saw this. What a nice surprise! Sharon, these are two of the three squirrels I raised after they were blown out of their nest during hurricane Frances. They have all been released and are doing great. They hang around the house and beg nuts from me, from my office window, all day long. There may be some new photos of them posted soon! Again...Thanks for the nice comments.

Thanks again to everyone for your nice comments. It's an honor to have this photo selected for POTD!

Penny, Congratulations on moving into your house FINALLY! I'm looking forward to catching up with you!

Scott, This photo was shot on my screened lanai. The squirrels were on top of the grill. This was shot with a 105mm Macro lens. The background is the screen about 1 foot behind the squirrels and a wall about 4 feet beyond the screen.
