Today’s Saturday Squirrel picture is somewhat of an anachronism in the literal sense. How can a blog that didn’t exist at the time claim ownership of a photograph? Well, while I may not have started up this happy internet home until the dying days of 2011, I was certainly taking squirrel pictures well before then. In fact, this photo comes from literally the very first squirrel photoshoot I ever did, back on May 26, 2009. Sadly, it’s also the best pic of that bunch, and the only one even somewhat worthy of showing off…
I moved into my new home back in that Spring month five years ago, coinciding with the time that Evil Squirrel was really starting to become a big part of my life. I was quite overjoyed that in the center of the backyard was a huge oak tree, which I knew had to be a regular squirrel magnet. So when I went on my first shopping spree to buy necessities for my new nest, a corn cob squirrel feeder was a must! The local sciurines have been living high off the hog ever since, and my feeder has both directly and indirectly led to so many of the great shots I’ve featured here every Saturday for the past two years!
That reminds me… I need to go give the feeder a refill!
Have a great pre-Fall weekend everybody! And make it even better by feeding a hungry squirrel!
