Thief

By viscostatic
We bought a squirrel feeder but this one prefers to steal the birds' nuts. Yesterday it was joined by a second squirrel but they are not friends; more like competitors for food and territory. They chased each other round the garden before making off with an apple core each.

Thank you to all who viewed, voted and commented on my purple poppy.

Only wish we will some day see these back in the South East of England. Bringing back the pine martins may help as they tend to catch the grey squirrels as they feed lower to the ground.

Great shot...

More fun to steal the bird food - you'll have fun watching their antics Phil.
