Squirrels In The Park – Trip 7

If you’re one of those weird people who like to take pictures of squirrels, then there’s only one place to go in my town, and that’s the local park.  I’ve made a number of photography trips there over the years, and I’m looking back at each of them every Tuesday.  This is edition number seven, and today’s collage of park squirrelly goodness took place on the morning of Wednesday April 27, 2016!  Once again, I had a lovely photo in the leadoff spot to serve as the title card for this album.  Let’s see what was blooming in the park on this late April morn…

Oh, is that a visitor I see to my humble arboreal abode?

Guess I better look cute then!

This beautiful photo was nominated for my April Calendar Squirrel competition last year, and somehow didn’t win!  I love those blooms draping all around the squirrel.  If you know what kind of tree this is, please holla in the comments below!

What’s the matter, ain’t never seen a squirrel with a dandelion on its head before? Go away!

Now that’s just rude!  Cute, but rude…

How come my tree isn’t as pretty as that other squirrel’s looks?

Sorry pal, but not every squirrel’s tree can look like it was featured in Better Nests and Gardens…

Sisyphus Squirrel hard at work…

I pushed this rock up the hill all by myself!

Yeah, sure you did…

Oh, come on!  This is the seventh time I’ve been to the park.  Shouldn’t you guys be used to seeing me taking pictures by now?

You can take a picture of me!!!

Thanks, buddy.  I think I will…

Not me! I’m too shy…

Oh, come on!  I won’t put it on Facebook since I don’t use it anyway….

Is that a squirrel or a martian!?!?

OK, definitely a squirrel.  I guess he could still be from Mars, though…


You just look silly with that stick blocking your face…

Oooooh!!!  Famous Squirrel Alert!!!  You’ve seen this guy on my blog several times before.  He’s just missing the accessory you usually see him with…..

Yep, it’s Gun Nut Squirrel!  I’ll bet you’re surprised to learn that gun was fake, aren’t you?

One of these days I’ll get a picture of a squirrel holding a pine cone.  It hasn’t happened yet, but it will!!!


Screaming Squirrel!!!!  I love this picture!!!  Yes, it’s another “nut in mouth looks like open mouth” illusion… but it’s a great one!  I dub thee Howard Dean…

Congratulations!  You win the Squirrel Of The Year Award!

I do!?!? Well, where’s my trophy?

Ummmm….. you’re standing on it!

Actually….. you ARE the trophy!

I hope you’re joking…

No, I’m dead serious!  Hold still while I get the gold spray paint….

And one last photo of a squirrel in front of a very pretty leafy background.  His tail looks a little stubby, don’t you think?

We’ll go another four months into the future next Tuesday.  Be sure to come back for more awesome park squirrels!

    Great group. Love the award pedestal shots… I think he knew he was being photographed.

  3. Great shots of those little busy critters we all love! I think the pink tree “decorations” might be the red maple seeds in early Spring? Just googled it and they look like possibles. Whatever they are, they make a great SPRINGISH surrounding for Mr. Squirrel.


    • Maple’s good enough for me. There’s a pretty good variety of trees in the park, and I’m sure some of them are maples. They do make the squirrels look so much prettier!

  4. It would be hard to resist any of those peek-a-boo squirrels. As for the mystery tree, from what I can tell with the leaf shape, it looks a lot like a Tatarian Maple.

    I love my squirrels – they are so entertaining. I wonder if I will have any when we move!

  7. Oh my goodness these are precious. Look at those cute little faces!!!!!!
    Hey, didn’t Tommy Shaw write a song about Squirrels with Guns?
