The Stare Down~ by Brenda Dahl

Currently unavailable for purchase

We have found a new visitor squirrel in our front yard recently. We have been catching him digging in the lawn finding something scrumptious for about a month now. This squirrel is different than the others. This one has quite the cute and chunky belly; seems it has been eating wrather well this year… I originally was taking pictures from the comfort and warmth of my living room windows and decided I needed to get clearer shots. As soon as I peeked around the corner with my camera, this cutie spied me and ran to safety in my tree. I assuming he was camera shy~!!!!! LOL. We had a stare down for quite some time, The Squirrel Won….I gave in to the cold weather. Pleased however with this naturally clear shot that most definitely pleased my eye…~!

    Excellent capture Brenda, looks a bit like some of the red squirrels we have around here, ours are pretty agressive and territorial, who knows, could be an inner city thing! A few peanuts and some sunflower seeds and he’ll be a constant friend!!

  • Hi Shutterbug~ Thank You so very much~! We have “country” squirrels and they are quite friendly. They are curious little creatures and hungry.~! LOL ..
    Since I have been getting blessed with so many squirrels I am going to invest in some feeders pretty soon….
    AND LMAO about the “inner city squirrels..” It has to be an inner city thing. I would love to see it…hey yet another reason to visit…..~! Have a great day and thanks for coming by
