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
Just like us.
