Satan’s Squirrel

DSC05411

This year’s batch of baby squirrels have been hard to befriend but I thought I was making progress. Then, I looked out my living room window and saw the squirrel above staring back at me. It doesn’t look like it’s thinking kind thoughts. Β On the contrary, it looks like it might be plotting some evil deed against me!

If you never hear from me again, please show this photo to the police or a supernatural investigator of some kind. πŸ™‚

    1. It was a bit creepy to see him staring back at me like that! The squirrels often peek in my windows but they usually look curious and sweet while doing so.

    Gosh I love these squirrel shots of yours.
    We don’t get squirrels here and our possums are such nasty little critters.
    Love it when you capture the squirrels looking straight at you. Sort of brings them in to my back yard.

    1. It’s a shame you don’t have squirrels. They are such a joy to watch and interact with. Of course, some people would say you’re fortunate to not have them. They do cause trouble in some places. Do you see koala bears around, or are they only in certain areas? Your possums are absolutely adorable compared to ours!

      1. I don’t think I’ve seen Koalas except in the Zoo. They would be more out in the bush, not urban areas. I’ve certainly seen many kangaroos next to, and in the fields, of my brother’s farm. They got under his fence and ate all his 3 rows of grape vines. They’re real pests for farmers.

        I’d do another zoo visit for you, but without a telephoto lens I wouldn’t get much in the way of photos. The Koalas are not in a cage so easier to photograph, but without that 18-200mm lens I wouldn’t be able to get close enough to see much detail.

        My 50mm lens won’t get me any shots except a landscape, seascape or very close (like flowers). My 50mm won’t even get me close to the Doves on my balcony.

        1. I didn’t realize kangaroos ran around eating gardens the way rabbits do in some places here!

          I hope your camera doesn’t take too long. I remember how limited I felt with only the kit lens for my new camera.

  2. I like the little black streak on its nose… completes the evil theme rather nicely! And of course, he is silently pondering what evil things he can do to those who talk bad about possums!!

    1. Oh, so that’s why he’s mad! I think Buster is adorable, does that get me out of trouble? πŸ™‚

      At first I thought the black on the nose was something stuck there. I worried some bark got imbedded there or something. Now that I’ve gotten closer, I can tell it’s just a dark streak of fur. Of course I’m hoping it’s a mutation that will lead to black squirrels a few generations down the road!
