Acrobatics

A squirrel's gotta eat!


See, this is what I'm talkin' about.

Did ya miss it?


Here's how it goes... swing down,



and grab some seeds


And up to the top to have a good chew.  It's pretty safe up here.  This sunflower stalk is at least 10 feet tall.

Now you know how to do it for yourself, right?

Isn't it such fun watching how limber the squirrels are and all the tricks they go through to get food? I'm sure if i had to go through such things in order to eat, I would be pretty thin! You made some real good captures!

Wish I was that limber:)

I think I've got it now, thanks to your great photos and text. But I don't think I'll find a sunflower big enough to support me to try it out. What a cute post!

He's got a good rhythm going there!
Love that last one of him perched on top, paws together.
Great captures, Stephanie

Love it! I'll have to share the pix I have of the squirrels looking down at our pup whose favorite hobby is chasing them! Speaking of hobbies, thanks so much for the encouragement for my knitting attempts! It is great motivation!

They are quite athletic, for sure! I get a lot of enjoyment watching their antics that go on in our yard.
