Five years ago, the last time the Fourth of July fell on a Saturday, I featured a photo I took of my backyard that contained a whopping six squirrels within its frame…. allowing my readers to count and find them all. I was reminded of that picture two weeks ago when I came across an area of the park that was utterly loaded with the little furballs! This photo barely accounts for half of the squirrels I was able to see with my eyes… but it will once again give you the chance to spend your holiday (or non-holiday if you aren’t American) counting up how many Saturday Squirrels you can find in this snapshot.
Good luck, happy counting, and as always…..
Have a great weekend everyone!
Hmmm….this is a toughie – I’d guess five possibly six? The “possibly” is an unidentified bit of grayish material in the grass. Do we call this your second Squirrelpalooza of all time??
I do think that squiggly gray line in the background is a sixth squirrel! Every time I try to count the squirrels in this photo, I always end up including the bird, because I guess I’m just used to seeing only squirrels in my pictures…
I say 5.
There are definitely five in the foreground, with a potential sixth far off in the grassy knoll…. er, background.
I can see 5 plus the bird. Happy 4th of July! 🙂
Yes, 5 for sure with a possible sixth!
Squirrelpalooza it is! Great shot Evil!
Whoa…I think that counts as a squirrel convention.
Six and a robin?
I reckon 6 and a bird. I’m pretty sure the smudge in the sunny area at the top is one!
Looks like they’re social distancing a couple of tails apart.
I count 6, unless there are more in the background that my reading glasses won’t let me see!
I see six squirrels, though I wanted to try and make two squirrels out of the big knot looking scar on the tree. If I drink enough, I might be about to count more! Hope you enjoyed your fourth! Mona
