We have a baby!

I was extremely fortunate to come across Trisha’s blog Shedding Light earlier this year via Sheena’s sidebar. She is the only other person I’ve come across on WP so far who seems to love taking pictures of squirrels as much as I do! If you love my squirrel shots, do yourself a favor and follow her as well! Oh, and of course be sure to check out the awesome baby squirrel photos in this post I’ve reblogged!

One thing that is a little disappointing about squirrels is that they don’t often show themselves until they are nearly full grown, at least in my yard. (And maybe wisely so, given how Trouble reacted to that little red squirrel.) Over all the years that I’ve lived so closely with squirrels, only a few times have small, most-definitely baby squirrels appeared in my yard. They usually show up when they’re right on the border between teen and adult.

So, I was ridiculously excited when I spotted a baby in the birch tree on Sunday. I tried to get photos but the little guy (or gal) was having such a hard time with traction that I couldn’t catch it still enough.

  1. What a precious little squirrel. Beautiful.

    Thank you for reblogging and sharing the baby squirrel cuteness! I will continue stalking it with my camera as long as it shows up here. And I’m seeing more nursing mothers so maybe others will be showing up soon!

  4. We don’t have any squirrels anymore. I haven’t seen one around here in a couple of years. I have theories about why, but no squirrels, no rabbits, and even the hordes of chipmunks have vanished. I miss them.

  5. Well that’s just too freaking cute! Love baby animals! But squirrels are some of the cutest! 😀
