Whilst on a mission to take bird photos in the back garden recently there were,
as always, bushy-tailed interlopers practicing gymnastics. . . . .and these two playing
peek-a-boo on a tree. I swear squirrels smile - don't you see them doing that here,
with a glint in those beady eyes?
Of course they too were after the birdseed - they eat more than the sweet
birds - but we keep filling the feeders out of the goodness of our hearts,
for the love of nature, and the entertainment they provide while we're
enjoying a cool summer supper, or just sipping a couple of refreshing
chilled drinks, in the screened gazebo.
Right now the temperatures have soared even higher - today the heat
index will be 106F and this will continue throughout the coming weekend.
If I was in a fur coat I would not be chasing or playing with anything -
I'd be skinny dipping in the birdbaths!
"Thanks for the snack Mr. or Mrs. Homeowner". We cleaned out the suet
feeder BTW - any chance of a refill?"
"Cool birdbaths you say - I'm headed for a dip right now!"
