Sneaky Little Bandit

Oh they are cute! I have been watching the squirrels get fatter and fatter... and now I find out I was not the only one in this house feeding them! DH was also falling for their innocent little faces, soooo hungry, very hungry, starving, really! One Ear seems to be almost as wide as long... and this little cutie is Junior. He has the thinnest tail of any of the ones I recognize. He is also pretty slender, or at least normal size.

The whole group seems to take shifts. There is usually one out there when I put out the first batch. Not long after, a second and third show up. Maybe one or two more. Then when Gil sets out peanuts, a whole other group appears, seldom the same as the morning. If I sit outside in the evening, a couple always show up, and get right up close, even sitting right next to me, looking expectant. I am a sap, I really am. They make me laugh, and that is something I value.
