Just Like Us

Of all the animals we share our winter with,
squirrels seem to be the most similar to us.

They hibernate when it gets really cold,
venturing out every once in a while in search of something to eat.

This lucky guy has found some peanuts someone has put out for him.

Notice how he keeps an eye on me.

Ready to spring into action

If I start looking a little too hungry.

Taking his treasure with him to eat at a safer distance,

He makes sure to hide it from me completely.

After filling its stomach it climbs up a tree to catch the last rays of the sun

Where it slowly begins 

To fall


Just like us.


  1. Oh what a sweet squirrel send it to me I'm away from toppppp
    regards, Annie

  2. Wonderful pictures Rosemary...... very well done.

    Greetings, Joop

  3. I bet you were the someone who put out the peanuts - what a fortune I have spent on seeds and nuts this winter, but they are worth it.
    I love the little tales you are making to go with your beautiful photographs.

  4. Brilliant capture of the peanut part of a day in the life of a squirrel – and its photographer. I felt I was watching an evocative private dance: the lady and the squirrel.

  5. Very telling and wonderful pictures,,love the squirrel its so cute,its probably grateful for all food it can get!!
    We had them in the garden in Denmark but here is more rare to see them:)All photos are so great I like the no 3 , is amazing
    Have a nice day:)

  6. Funny series of this Nice guy. A coolone you have there.

    I love squirrels so much, give them a peanut from me too :-)
    cari saluti,

  9. Hello Rosemary,
    What a great shots. So cute to see this eating squirrel in the snow.
    This must be fantastic to see this little one in real.

    Many greetings,

  10. What a beautiful story!
    Nice begin for a new book: "Rosemary and the squirrel".

  11. Excelentes fotografias de lindos Esquilos....

  12. Cudowna wiewiórka i słowa łączące zdjęcia. Pozdrawiam.
    Wonderful squirrel combining images and words. Yours.

  13. Oh! I just posted a squirrel pic too. They are fun to watch.

  14. I love squirrels...he is such a fine plump guy!

  15. Too cute! What a nice series of the squirrel's day out! It looks like it still has quite a winter reserve stored under all that fur!

  16. I don't think I've ever seen a squirrel basking in the sun like that. So cute.
    Our weather has warmed up, and the squirrels are everywhere. I've had to be so careful while driving.

  17. So nice pictures, Rosemary. The squirrels are cute when they behave like this, not so cute when they dig up all the tulip bulbs for dessert!

  18. Great pictures of the squirrel, very well photographed Rosemary.
    The second and third pictures are my favorite.
    Greetings Irma

  19. Hahaha..true to the bone! Just like us indeed :)
    Love your story and the 'actor' is so handsome.
    Great shots and love all your pictures!

  20. Des merveilleuses photos... l'agilité de ce petit animal m'étonne toujours... De belles captures... bravo !
    Gros bisous à vous.

  21. I've never thought about all the similarities before but're right :)

  22. Now I feel sorry for them! If I had to live outside all winter, I would certainly hope someone would feed me peanuts, too! So sweet of you! Great photos!

  23. Great and true parallel you made with this cute little fellow!
    I envy - yes I do!! - your pictures for this is a creature I have never been able to photograph yet!
    Ours are red!
    Lovely series, Rosemary!

  24. Oh my God!
    Your pictures are wonderful squirrel.
    Yours :)
