Spring has finally arrived, and the squirrels are happy to be getting back into their warm weather routines. One of which is, of course, getting to know each other a little better! These two squirrels among my backyard bunch seem to have become quite an item. Squirrel chases are nothing out of the ordinary around my oak tree… but when the chasee doesn’t seem to be too interested in getting away from the clutches of the chaser, you know there’s a little something of the game of love going on!
And of course, once the chasing is over, you just know it’s going to lead to something like this….
Sigh, there are times when I feel like my backyard squirrel watching is actually a bit of an intrusion on my furry neighbors’ privacy. OK, I’ll put the camera away now and close the blinds. You two can have all the fun you want now out of the prying eyes of this sciurine peeping tom…. I’ll wait until you’ve finished “burying your nuts” to let you know that for the second straight week, you two have been my featured Saturday Squirrels!
Have a great weekend… though you’ll never have a better time than these two are having!
