Valerie’s Backyard Critters
As mentioned here a few backyard critters visited Valerie and I, while we chatted on her deck this past Tuesday.
The gray squirrel paused only momentarily before deciding it was safe to come up on the deck.
The appearance of the red squirrel surprised me. I had heard that red squirrels chased away gray squirrels. These two have lived in close proximity for some time now, according to Valerie.
I didn’t mind sharing the deck with the squirrels and chipmunk.

UGH—I despise both squirrels and chipmunks. They are such a nuisance to us–especially chipmunks. They dig tunnels in our flowerbeds and destroy our flowers… The squirrels dig in the flowerbeds and also destroy the flowers… Drives us CRAZY–not to mention them eating the bird food. BUT–they are CUTE and I can understand why others like them…Hugs,Betsy
I especially liked the Kennedy quote for today. “Our progress as a nation can be no swifter than our progress in education.” How true.
Thanks too the the comment on the Frog & PenguINN work crew of frogs- the original post was lost, as were all the cooments. Blogger had a problem on Friday the 13th!
Linda – what a GREAT afternoon of critter (and insect) watching – terrific closeups and portraits.
You got some great pictures of the squirrels and chipmunk. I'm not particularly fond of the wasp, however.
I love that chipmunk's cheeks…they look like they are just packed. Great photos of the squirrels, too.
Adorable little critter!
These photos are so clear, Linda – the critters seemed to be posing for you!
Beautiful creature Linda.. Except for the wasp of course.. :)Ram
