This cutie pie, my friend Donnie named her Glory, used to LOVE playing and digging in my strawberry plants while we were stationed at Fort Drum, NY. She used to come to our yard and gather all the leftover peanuts from the squirrels and the bird food that that birds would drop. I took this photo with my Nikon CoolPix P100 and enhanced it just a tiny bit to enhance the colors in it. Thank you so much for looking at my photo of Glory. :)

    Delightful capture, excellent detail!

  • Thank you for looking Celeste!! This little cutie used to come visit every day…I wonder if she still goes to my old yard in NY looking for goodies because I am sure that the new people that live in our house probably aren’t as crazy about wildlife as I am.

    Melissa, it is hard to leave the befriended wild creatures behind, but if they were smart enough to find you, they are smart enough to move on to a neighbor who fully appreciates them. :)

    Wonderful capture Melissa. Glory is so adorable. I miss seeing this little chipmonk now that we live in the southern USA. We don’t have them here, at least not along the coast. All four of my brothers were stationed at Fort Drum during their service days. Nice area. Great shot. :)

  • Thank you so much Kathy!! Glory used to come visit every day!! :) She LOVED cleaning up after the squirrels and the birds. :) She would love to dig around and find the peanuts that the squirrels would bury in the yard too. Fort Drum is a VERY beautiful area…it has grown and expanded in the surrounding areas of Watertown. I miss it…but I mostly miss the people and the critters :)
