My good friend Kim Gilby (who I know as Jessie from my message board) recently spent some time at Cypress Creek in her hometown of Austin, TX… and vowed to finally see a live armadillo and take some squirrel pictures for me. There were no armadillo (or pigladillo) sightings, but she did deliver on her promise of a handful of great squirrel photos, and I chose to feature a few of them for this week’s Saturday Squirrel!
I’m not sure if this is the same squirrel that was in the tree or not, but this was the best close up picture of the bunch. He looks so happy to be sitting there eating whatever it is he’s gnawing on…. probably first dipped in Pace Picante Sauce from San Antonio.
I absolutely love how you can see his reflection in the water in this photo. It’s really a fantastic nature picture that would look good in a tourism brochure! People do travel the world just to see different squirrels, right?
It almost looks like he’s stepping out of the water in this photo! Again, I love the reflection! This is an effect I haven’t had a chance to capture myself yet….
Won’t you join this squirrel in a drink?
Thanks Jessie for the great squirrel pictures, and allowing me to share them on my blog!!!
Have a great weekend everyone!
Just beautiful. I have to say I have a finer appreciation for squirrels now because of you, ES.
I’m glad to be passing on the squirrel appreciation! I never even gave the critters a second thought before that little cartoon grey squirrel came into my life almost 5 years ago, and along with making people smile and laugh, sciurine appreciation is another primary mission of my blog!
Enjoyed these photos very much.
I’m happy I was given the chance to share them!
great pics and a rare treat for us to get a glimpse of the natural world in a location we might otherwise not see. Would love to visit there though.
I’ve never even been to Texas myself, but it does look beautiful!
You are very welcome! I love this and I’m so glad you enjoyed the pictures. 😀
Jess, great pics! The ‘driftwood’ look of the fallen trees is very pretty. Yeah, thanks to LB we now have to be nice to squirrels and take pictures of them. Well, except when they take a bite of one of my tomatoes and then just leave the rest sitting there. I will not be nice to them then! But I have been known to feed them inwinter so I guess I have been corrupted.
