What did you put out for those squirrels?!

Adorable picture! I have a fondness for squirrels, even though I know they're basically rats with bushy tails.

Congrats to all winners! Hoping I get around to reading some this week - never had a chance last week!

Love the squirrels. I always looked forward to your POTW as it gives a chance to discover new people - I see you have revamped it since I left Blogland - Looks fab :)

Dawn said...

A very neat picture. It could have used some flash fill to be even better, but what can you do. Very good.

Fabulous capture, Hilary, as usual. I am so amazed by your ability to get these. Of course, you might have put something out there they really like, too, but still...

Thank you for your constant support in your comments on my blog. You often make my day.

Pauline said...

I've been beating the squirrels off my bird feeder to no avail and so have resorted to feeding them at a separate venue - a picnic table in the woods with seed just for them. So far, so good...

Thanks, Hilary, for POTW mention :)

I wanted to ask you if Squirrel Buffet was the cousin of Jimmy Buffett, and had you heard his marvelous song "Wastin' Away Again in AlmondRocaVille"?

But then, I saw you had chosen one of my posts as a Runner Up for Post of the Week! Thank you, thank you, thank you. I tried to make a link to this post, but if there is an official way to do it, I couldn't figure it out.

Anyway: thanks a million jillion! What fun!!!

Hilary said...

Thanks, everyone for stopping by to comment. and to support the folks named in the POTW.

Those squirrels were seen in the park, a fair distance away, while I was out walking. It looks like someone left a good mix of bird seed for them. They were quite content feeding their furry little faces.

Thanks for the kind words, folks. And some of you with your funny comments (I'm looking at you, Susan), you made me laugh. :)

Don said...

Looks like the squirrels have caught on to this social networking thing.
