Squirrels

I could watch squirrels for hours. I’ve been watching a squirrel behind my house for the last 15 minutes or so. It’s stuffing leaves in its mouth, running up a tree, jumping over to the neighbor’s roof, and making a warm bed in their gutter (I assume) since it’s going to be back below freezing tonight.

Most days I see at least a couple of squirrels chasing each other around the trees. Maybe they’re playing Tag.

Their ability to sprint up trees and jump from branch to branch (or tree to tree) fascinates me.

Eating Peanuts

These black-tailed prairie dogs were eating peanuts at the Budapest Zoo. They were pretty skilled at breaking open the shells for the prize inside.

Red Deer

Part of Spingfield Castle is a deer farm. The owner took us out into the field to feed the deer.
