And it keeps the boredom at bay.
That’s when I caught this little fella.
I had just sat down to watch the birds in the bushes when I looked up and saw this tiny face among the branches of the dogwood tree. I know it’s pretty blurry, but that sucker moved so quickly, I hardly had time to grab the camera let alone check the settings.
The bold brazen article slinks along the branch, knocking down the freshly fallen snow as he travels.
And then he zooms down the pole ~
My husband used a thin metal hook to hang this particular feeder because it’s slippery. The little bugger slid down it so fast, I nearly didn’t capture him!
Poof! He was quick. I held the shutter down and this is all I got.
He checks to make sure that the evil dog is not on duty.
I’m sure the squirrels think that our dear, sweet George is evil.
And when it comes to squirrels, believe me – George is serious about his job.
One can never be sure if it’s safe to eat.
But this morning, the coast looks clear.
And a nice relaxing stretch while he leisurely eats his breakfast of oiled sunflower seeds.
Where are you when we need you, George?

Have a great day, all.
