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


Asleep.

Just like us.

  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.

  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!
