I am always happy to feature the squirrels who bring joy to the lives of my readers on my popular weekend sciurine series, and this set of three photos comes courtesy of longtime Nest follower Ally Bean, who shot these wonderful pictures of a squirrel after a recent snowstorm. This squirrel has some kind of unknown treat in its mouth that I can’t even begin to identify. It could just be a stick. Or it could be a dog’s rawhide bone. Or possibly even a burrito. There’s no telling. But one thing’s for sure… whatever it is, this squirrel is happy to have possession of it, and he is NOT going to share with anyone…
Ally has long talked about a squirrel who frolics in her yard who she has dubbed Fuzzy. Now, Fuzzy may actually be more than one squirrel…. they’re not easy to tell apart unless you really pay close attention to your furry neighbors. But like with a lot of the bloggers I crossed paths with in the first few years of running The Nest, it was a Fuzzy themed post that first allowed me to find Ally… and I’ve long gone out of my way to defend the rascal. And I am extremely happy to show off some pictures of Fuzzy, or perhaps one of his descendants on my Saturday Squirrel feature!
Many, many thanks to Ally Bean for not only capturing these wonderful squirrel photos, but allowing me to share them with my fellow sciurine lovers out there! If you have any squirrel photos you’d like to me share with the world, feel free to hit me up by looking for my email address in the Contact Me page!
Have a great weekend everyone!
