I have to admit that after watching the half-dozen squirrels invading my yard this winter, this little one has tugged at my heartstrings. It’s the smallest, thinnest and has a scar on its back, so more and more often I’ve let it hang out.
Peppermint watches it through the glass door, and it’s become so brave that it stands five feet away and simply watches her back. Today I took out my camera and shot a few images from the doorway as it foraged in the snow. Even with the loud shutter, it stood its ground. I’m not sure if its smarter than the others or just desperate for food!
In any case, it entertained me today and became a nice subject for my Wednesday post.
