Day 313 - Squirrels and leaves

The squirrels have been very active feasting and hiding the bumper crop of acorns. These two spent a good part of the morning digging through the leaves to find the acorns. (The tree at the left is an oak; the maple is just out of the picture to the right.) This afternoon I went to load up bags of leaves to haul to the compost site and this one was sitting on the post. I was able to get my camera out of the van, walk to within 6 feet of him and take several shots before he scurried on across the fence.

Bumper crop of acorns! You know that usually means a bumper crop of snow!

IT was very friendly of that squirrel to hang out and let you snap his pic. He's quite handsome.
