#133 – Blue Balls

Photo taken: January 8, 2014

Unlike many of its mammalian woodland friends, the squirrel does not hibernate for the winter.  That means that they have to put up with the same fun wintry weather that we do… and look how much this squirrel enjoys standing belly deep in snow while it tries to find the nuts it hid back in October!  Is he walking in a winter wonderland, or what?  I guess I better stop getting laughs at his expense, or he might chuck a snowball packed with an acorn at my head…

    I wonder if he dug himself that little hole or if he just melted down the way…

  4. Poor guy, our squirrels have a winter coat. At summer they have reddish brown thin coat and at wintertime they are grey with a really thick fur. They look sometimes very funny when changing fur, like reddish brown shirt and thick grey wool pants.

    • Our squirrels change coats with the seasons as well. That squirrel’s fur is very thick compared to what they look like now in August. They don’t quite do the color change thing, or get as fluffy and furry as European squirrels do though…

    I feel sympathy chills just looking at that poor guy and his frozen nuts. Talk about a double entendre…

    Awwww, squirrels look so cute when they pop up out of the snow! I never thought about how cold cold their little, or big, nuts might get in the snow though!

  7. Trust me on a day like today where the temp is back in the 90’s that photo looks pretty darn inviting!
