Wee's not so wee...ah, but I'll miss that "baby fluff"! Know what you mean about the red-tailed hawk, too...ours do a lot of "duck and weaving" getting from one spot to another...cause that bad, ol' bird is crusing the area daily...Hope Wee stays safe - he's a sweetie, Tess! #8096209

Just adorable! Great capture! As a kid we had a family of squirrels in Michigan that we fed on our front porch. The squirrels ended up moving in to our house and living in our walls. We felt terrible about having to evict them. They kept us up all night partying! #8109223

Tess L. Yee 11/9/2009 9:53:36 AM

Huge (belated) thanks for all of these fantastic comments!

I saw Wee this weekend, and I might need to come up with a new name! UnWee Bold? Not-so-wee Bold? Squirrel Formerly Known as Wee Bold? #8116972

To discuss, first log in or sign up (buttons are at top center of page).


One of the last images of WeeBold when Wee was, well...wee! I just loved that bushy tail that all but dwarfed the wee one. Wee's body, still wearing 'baby fluff,' is finally catching up with that tail. Although no recent images (Wee's a bit more aloof), I'm happy with any Wee sighting, as that means the red-tailed hawk hasn't snatched my baby!
