Hi everyone and hope the weekend is going well for everyone! Was out and about and this little guy was putting on a great display of balance on a our picket fence and thought it was great how he was trying to figure out how to get to the free eats at the bird feeder. Oh well i guess nature needs a hand so i threw some seed on the ground! Will be back tonight as we finally have spring here,yeau!

stay well

Good timing to capture this one Tony, I've seen a TV show about squirrels trying to get to bird feeders through elaborate obstacle courses, it didn't take them long however to work it out! perhaps you could come up with your own version? would be great for some interesting shots..

what a great title! I like the way the edges and background are slightly softer, putting more emphasis on the 'critter' and we can almost 'see' that he is trying his best to figure out how to get to the feeder (not that he needed to in the end - hehe).

another good one.
