The Nest is creating a virtual squirrel calendar and opening up the archive to find the perfect models for each month. My patient (very, very patient) readers are getting to decide for themselves which squirrels should be immortalized within this yearlong tribute to cuteness, and which ones should merely be awarded participation trophies. The candidates are getting better and better as we enter the heart of Autumn, the squirrel’s golden season!
Last week’s September squirrels were a particularly hard lot for you all to pick just one from! But there was still one squirrel who rose above the rest….
Short Branch was just so awesomely handsome, he clearly captured the majority of the squirrel loving public’s hearts! I think there are still some people not seeing the poll, because I know #4 got some love in the comments, yet showed up empty in the official results. That was neither here nor there, though, Short Branch is our squirrel who will see you in September…
And now we move on to the festive month of October! My archive is nowhere near as big as I suspected it would be for a prime Fall month… even none of the great photos I took just last week at the park and haven’t even shared yet on my blog made the cut. But I found a nice slate from the middle of the decade that I think you’ll love. Here are the candidates for the October calendar squirrel in chronological order…
#1. Vampire Squirrel (October 28, 2013)
#2. Cheering Squirrel (October 3, 2014)
#3. Squirrelshead Revisited (October 3, 2014)
#4. Sunlit Leaves (October 15, 2015)
#5. Taking A Rest (October 30, 2015)
#6. The Squirrelcoon (October 30, 2015)
#7. Enjoying The View (October 16, 2016)
And the winner is………………. up for you to decide! Vote now in the poll below! If you don’t see the poll below, say so in the comments and give me your choice! I want everyone to be accounted for!
Voting ends at the stroke of midnight on Halloween….. er, morning. Be sure to get your vote in before next Thursday before this poll turns into a pumpkin…
