Our newest friend

Ever since we put out the bird feeder that Kevin made, we've had many new visitors to the backyard. One of my favorites is the squirrel. I'm pretty sure it's the same one that comes back day after day to get the food from the feeder. He's getting pretty bold. At times, he will hang from his hind feet and put his face in the feeder and shovel in the seeds! This morning he was eating from the seeds that spilled on the ground. I used my zoom lens to get close enough without scaring him away. What a cutie!!






All was good until my kids peeked their heads out the back door and yelled...Mom!! Are you getting any good pictures????? That's when the photo opt came to a screeching halt. I did manage to get a few good ones!
