Squirrel swarm!

Should anyone ever wonder "where have all the squirrels gone?" I swear that on some mornings they have found their way onto our property. This is the view on most mornings, early, when the commuters stop by to fortify themselves for a busy day of digging, planting, scurrying and raiding bird-feeders.
Some of these are the regulars we see every day; others are newcomers I may not recognize. There are a few, such as Tipsy, a slightly neurologic squirrel, who brightens my day when he shows up - and I make sure he gets extra so he stays strong and able-bodied.

In case I ever feel like my life is not complete I only need to look at these photos to realize that nature has given us "ACORN-U-COPIA."

Clicking on either swarm photo returns a photo of the same size. How about attaching a larger image so that one could enjoy the full effect of the swarming?

Cheers,

Chet, GREAT advice, I have added two larger photos - I just can't figure out how to delete the smaller versions yet but.....hey it is a squirrel SWARM so maybe it makes sense to keep them all on the page!!
