A Rural Thursday Blog Hop #12

Baby Love!!

I found a teeny, tiny squirrel in my yard.

and can I tell you, he is just about the sweetest thing I have ever seen.

Even if you don't love squirrels, you would love this little guy.

I had my 300mm lens on, I had to pull out a little to get these pictures.

I shared some peanuts with him...

and he was one happy camper!!




So this is what's happening in my neck of the woods.
I'm sharing today with
Please visit Nancy at A Rural Journal
and Lisa at Two Bears Farm

Think about hoping in and hoping around!!

So cute! That last shot is just perfect! I love their coloring - that tan/brown/black/gray mix....even though I'm not the biggest fan of squirrels, I so think they're pretty to look at. And I've never seen a baby!!

How cute is that. I can't believe he did not run off. The ones around here will not even let them selves be seen 2 seconds. Super cute. And such great pictures. Hope your working on the mini.

I have a love/hate relationship with squirrels. Right now, I love them because I have figured out how to keep them out of my bird feeders. This little guy sure is cute. That's where they get you though. They look cute and innocent and the next thing you know they are eating away at the squirrel-proof feeder you have up. lol. Wonderful pics!!!

I don't think I have one photo of our squirrels (and we have many!!) that isn't a blur of fur with its back to me!
