Our quest to craft the perfect virtual squirrel calendar continues each and every Thursday until we run out of months. The Nest is having its readers (the BEST readers in the whole wide blogosphere, of course!) vote on some of my favorite squirrel pics I’ve taken during each month to see who will be the eye candy for that particular month on the calendar. Yes, YOU decide! Not me. Not your weird neighbors. Not Simon Cowell. My readers are the ultimate judge!
And 20 of you all did your civic sciurine duty last week to choose our August squirrel! Let’s see who gets to sweat it out next summer…
There have been quite a few winners that have surprised me during this experiment so far….. but honestly, I’d have given up all hope that I see squirrels the way my readers do had Batsquirrel not taken the title for August! That is my favorite squirrel moment I have ever photographed, and now he will be there looking at you upside down as you X off each day next August!
And now onto September! This may be a squirrel’s busiest month of the year as nuts and other good stuff are falling off the trees everywhere and just waiting to get buried in the ground by cute little paws! Let’s see who you’ll have to peruse over for the unofficial first month of Fall. The nominees for September in chronological order….
#1. Charging Squirrel (September 30, 2014)
#2. Messy Eater (September 16, 2015)
#3. Short Branch (September 23, 2015)
#4. In The Crook Of A Tree (September 23, 2015)
#5. Swishy Tail (September 8, 2016)
#6. Surprise! (September 5, 2019)
What a cavalcade of cuteness! Which one of these adorable little critters should get the nod for our September calendar squirrel? Vote in the poll below NOW!
Make sure you have your vote registered before next Wednesday night the 23rd! Otherwise, you won’t earn the right to bitch about the results. And that’s just the American way, man…
