Looks like he wants to come in! Very cute capture! #10418311

Jeff W. Robinson 11/14/2012 5:16:35 AM

What a great expression - Excellent capture Val! #10418349

Where there's a will...terrific caught-in-the-act capture, Val! And he shows no remorse whatsoever! #10418464

This is an amazing capture Val! #10418541

Terry T. Ruvalcaba 11/14/2012 7:52:48 AM

Oh, so cute! great capture with his hand in the "cookie jar"! nothing can keep a hungry squirrel from food! #10418551

Nina Shields 11/14/2012 9:38:27 AM

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!! #10418640

Reynaldo D. Reyes 11/14/2012 11:30:15 AM

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! #10418708

Carol L. Fowler 11/14/2012 11:59:43 AM

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! #10418740

rony sagy 11/14/2012 12:23:03 PM

What an amazing capture, Val. Your window must be so clean, allowing the tiny details to come through. Excellent catch. #10418776

Carol Flisak 11/14/2012 1:02:58 PM

Terrific image, Val... so nice of him to strike a cute pose! #10418822

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! #10418917

Claudia Kuhn 11/14/2012 5:15:19 PM

I think he wanted a spoon so he could quickly shovel the birdseed. Lol, terrific close up Val #10418994

Rona L. Schwarz 11/14/2012 8:22:59 PM

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! #10419169

This is fabulous, Val, and sooo cute! They are the poster rodent of autumn, these cuties, and they can not be deterred from their due diligence! This is a beautiful squirrel! I love the detail. Great capture! #10421841

Tammy Espino 11/16/2012 5:23:15 PM

Love it Val!!

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! #10523460

Summer A. Kozisek 1/22/2013 12:13:55 AM

They are unstoppable, but so adorable. I love this capture!! #10527157

Description


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.... :)
