Saturday Not Squirrels

The only bad luck in this photo is that snow.

With all of the health battles I’ve had the past couple months, I literally haven’t taken any new squirrel photos at all since my last trip to the park in mid May (something I plan to fix this coming week when I hopefully have five healthy days off work).  That had me digging through the archives, and I happened upon a batch of pictures I took in mid January 2014 that contained a few images of some of the other critters who happened to be romping through my backyard on a winter’s day.  Here’s the back of a black cat making tracks through the snow.  I guess he didn’t want to turn around so I could get a better shot of his pretty face….

But this cardinal was more than willing to show off his beauty….

Is it almost spring training yet?

I get the occasional bird shot while I’m photographing the squirrels, and this is probably one of the more colorful featherbrains you’ll find in my archive!

OK, I guess we can’t have a Saturday Squirrel post without at least one squirrel.  So here’s another photo from that same batch…

Hey, are you gonna finish that seed, pal?

The look on the squirrel’s face at the little beggar is priceless!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Sorry to hear of your health problems. Hope you’re fit as a fiddle and back stalking squirrels shortly.

  2. Whoa…you have cardinals and yet still focus on squirrels?? That cardinal shot is fabulous. The squirrel is cautiously guarding his no doubt stolen loot from the little panhandling bird.

    • I very rarely get the chance to take a picture of a cardinal (or any other bird that doesn’t look like one of the millions of grackles around here). The squirrels, however, are quite plentiful and much cuter!

  3. I hadn’t seen your usual array of posts for each day. I wanted to thank you for doing your usual Thursday SYW post though. I hope you feel lots better very soon, and that ‘they’ (those who treat us when we are ill) get you the best possible medicines and advice! Take care.

    • Much of my array of posts had already started to disappear before that. At some point, I hope to bring back some of them like Random Image Inspiration, which I kinda soured on because I was getting too many crappy text meme images…

    While it was good to see some not squirrel wildlife in your post (the cardinal is so beautiful and I love black cats), I’m glad you included a squirrel. Especially that guy with the chubby cheeks and priceless expression. He’s adorable!

    I hope you continue to feel better and can make your trip to the park.

    • The park trip this week isn’t looking good, but that’s because of all the rain we’ve had the past few days combined with the humidity being about 10,000 percent all week. Not exactly prime squirrel stalking conditions…. but I really hope I can at least get some new pics from around the yard!

  5. Those cardinals are amazing, but not living here. Your squirrel, bad he can’t talk.

    Hope you have a good health insurance and can get the treatment you need!

  7. Beautiful cardinal shot! And the squirrel photo is adorable. 🙂

  8. I think you’re done your bit for keeping physicians busy on things other than the virus so please get and stay healthy! Hope you’re feeling 100% ASAP. Meanwhile, the black cat photo is way cool – a black cat strolling cross the white snow – classic photo……I think the cardinal photo is really good – like “magazine” good. The squirrel eating his ill-gotten gains in front of the bird who was probably SUPPOSED to be eating what the squirrel is (!) is one of those kind of shots we have to be lucky to capture. Good job. Now get well. OK?

    Beggar bird? Can’t a bird make an honest living?

    You spoil us this week!

    All that snow—Mr. Squirrel looks shivery, and suspicious of that bird, but wow, that cardinal shot is gorgeous! Hope you feel better and better as each day goes by!

  12. They’re all gorgeous!
