Squirrels

This winter it seemed our area hawks were going to wipe out the neighborhood squirrels, but apparently the hawks moved on after nesting because we've been experiencing an population explosion of squirrels. I know there are many gardeners that hate these little tree rats but I find them rather comical & entertaining at times. Not so much when they ate all my lily bulbs but I do enjoy watching them at the feeders. Yes, we actually have platform feeders for the squirrels and squirrel houses. I've coaxed several to approach me when I walk back to the feeders, which is really exciting when I actually have something to give them, but darn right scary when I am empty handed & wearing flip flops. I really need a video camera.

Anyway, here is one of my little squirrels. Now picture about 20 running around your exposed toes.
