Have you hugged a tree today?

Sparky the squirrel is getting braver and braver pottering around my stoep. He digs and delves in all my plant pots, stashing treasure and then retrieving it again.

Here I disturbed him as he was scampering up the grape vine and caught him mid-hug.

Honestly, you’d think he owned the place!

    Sparky is the best! I think it’s a mutual love fest between you two. I like Pensitivity’s term, “Sparkette”…. I was wondering the same thing! Well, you’ll know soon enough if you see any “Sparks” in your gardens!!

    I’m in awe of the great shots you get. Me? I cut off heads, arms, and faces are obscured by shadows or glare! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

      Thank you very much πŸ™‚
      Oh he could be a she, but I doubt pregnant. It’s mid-winter after all and I remember seeing the two babies in my garden a few months ago. πŸ™‚
      Squirrels here are just healthy I guess – plus winter coat etc πŸ˜€
      I cropped these photos from a larger shot, so heads and tails in tact! πŸ˜€
