For your delight, this week’s Saturday Squirrel high up in a tree among a backdrop of spiky sweet gum tree balls!
It got up to 80 degrees the day I took this photo on Wednesday. A reminder that very soon, photos likes this won’t be possible for a long while as the trees quickly leaf up for Spring…
Have a great weekend everyone!
Looks like that guy is totally ignoring the gum tree balls and nibbling on a nice little leaf shoot! Better on the teeth.
I’d imagine the spiky balls do a nice job of flossing…
Mother Nature provides…….!
I don’t often post this comment, but that’s a lot of balls.
We’ve got the biggest balls of them all….
Do they eat those spikey things?
I have pictures of squirrels nibbling on them. In fact, two of the suggested posts that appear at the bottom go to those pictures!
Be careful where you step, those hummers hurt like the dickens on bare paws!
That’s why I don’t go to the park barefoot….
It would take a lot of balls to eat one of those balls…
Then organize your squirrels to chew the new leaves off the tree.
Yeah, who needs oxygen?
I hope he doesn’t spike his paws and fall out the tree.
….onto a giant pile of spiky balls. Well, it would happen to Buster if he hung upside down on that branch.
