Lunching in the Light

Uploaded: November 29, 2009


They say when the squirrel's tails are long and fluffy you can expect a very cold winter. Well, they are long and fluffy. Let's see if that holds true this winter.
There was a bumper crop of acorns this year. I caught this plump gray squirrel eating his fill of acorns while sunbathing in the glow of this magnificent afternoon light in Teaneck NJ yesterday.

He's a real cutie! You did a great job capturing him Joseph. I dream of the day I have a better camera and can get some awesome shots like this.

Keep your winter coat handy! :)

I had never heard that before, but "my" squirrels' tails are long & fluffy as well!

Great shot of this one enjoying his lunch while he sunbathes! #8183415
