I was in the kitchen minding my own business,
thinking about this and that as I washed and dried the dishes,
when I looked up and noticed something odd outside the kitchen window.
A blob of something was just beneath the magnolia tree.
I thought to myself, "what in the world is that?"
I grabbed my camera, zoomed in and there he was.
His head was flat on the ground with arms and legs stretched out far and wide; spread eagle and lazing!
Then his head popped up and his eye turned my way just a bit.
Squirrels have a keen sense about them.
It's was as though he knew I was watching.
No sooner had I snapped a few pictures when lickety-split,
he was at the kitchen window scurrying up the dogwood tree.
Nap time was over and he was on a mission to do a little thieving!
Yep...the bird seed must have been calling his name.
Hanging and thieving!
He watched me and I watched him.
A little later that day the mister and I were rocking on the front porch
when this little fella scurried on the sidewalk in front of us, hopped onto the porch and climbed up the tree.
He settled on the branch with arms and legs just hanging.
He got up and turned the other direction.
Then he turned back the other way again.
He would rest, look at us, rest a little more, change positions...a busy little fella!
He started wiping his face on the branch and then he was off!
We often see Barred Owls in this tree too.
Never a dull moment around here
