Animal Antics

I have a bird seed thief. Over the past few weeks, I couldn't begin to even measure how much seed this silly squirrel has eaten out of my feeder. Every morning I see him hanging upside-down from the roof, and in the afternoon I have to go add more. I have to admit, I am impressed with his athleticism -- how he hangs there using his toenails only to hold on!

Oh, I do love those little buggers, even if they can be a bit of a problem sometimes! Love your capture for the day!! Have a great day!

You have to give him credit for dexterity and imagination.
I wonder if the poor birds actually get anything.

I love animal antics, and photos of them in mid-antic. Great choice for A day. Cute little fellow has to eat also, he gets hungry... ; )

My dad fought (and lost) a neverending battle with the squirrels on their feeders as well. They did provide a great deal of free entertainment for us. lol

Oh what a cute little acrobat... I like your birdhouse too. I love watching all the little critters in our back yard.

I wish we had a feeder on the grounds of our building, it would be so much fun to watch the squirrels' antics!

Amazing photo! These little guys are adept at grabbing - they thieve a lot! One local squirrel evicted the birds and took over the bird house for his/her litter of littles.
