The squirrels, whether because of curiosity or out of caution, often stop their hustle and bustle to keep an eye on my backyard activity. It’s always fun to catch them sneaking a peek at me.

What darling squirrels.
You have to love some of their sweet little faces. 🙂
These are great pictures and what a wonderful quote. Thanks for sharing and Happy New Year!
Thanks! Happy New Year to you also!
They come around here in the winter too with their heavy winter coats and looking twice their size. It’s fun watching them search for hidden treasures in the snow😍
I do enjoy sitting in the backyard and watching them scurry about. I know watching them in the snow has to be a special treat.
They are cute, I’ll give them that much! 🙂
Some of them really know how to pose for the camera.
Those gray squirrels just seem to know they are extra cute and their classic pose with one paw down and one paw on their chest (which you have two pictures here), always gives me a smile. Your quote fits these pictures perfectly Rebecca.
Thanks Linda! They tend to be the most entertaining thing going on in my backyard most of the time.
Yes, it is hard to resist those endearing poses. 🙂
What a lovely and very apt quote! Love the curious but busy expressions of your backyard visitors!☺️
Thanks very much! 🙂
Love that 1st picture Linda says it all.
Thanks, Andy! I have to agree with Linda that their long toes and the way that they pose them is one of my favorite things about squirrel photos. 🙂
Hello from the suburbs of Philadelphia. You know, it seems to me that there are fewer squirrels around here than there used to be. I haven’t read anything about diminishing squirrel populations, so I hope I’m wrong about that.
I have counted at least six squirrels at my feeders at one time, so they seem to be thriving here. I’m not really sure about the general population. It would be interesting to look into.
