Tuesday

I didn't know....

....that squirrels like strawberries. I put this out to see if a bird would come by and take a bite, but the squirrel came instead. Later I had another one out and a mockingbird came by and had a bite ~ so birds will eat them too. It was quite a treat for me to watch this little guy.

I don't think there's much squirrels don't like! Chipmunks sure enjoyed raiding our strawberry patch on a regular basis so I imagine squirrels would like them too.

Great shot as always, Kerri!

What a great shot !!!
I knew that they like fruits - last year the one who lives in the garden has stolen all the Mirabelle plums on my little tree !!! About 20 of them in one night - awesome :)

I can sum up the photo with one word, EXQUISITE! Wait a minute, CUTE! Oh yea, AWESOME!I guess that's three words. Great photo Kerri!

I think squirrels will eat anything that's edible. They can be such destructive little creatures but how can you not fall in love with one that looks like this!

What a terrific shot. I didn't know squirrels like strawberries either but I'm not surprised. I think they will eat anything!

June said...

Now that's a rare shot! A good one too :-)

Super capture Kerri! A very nice shot, although personally I'm not a big fan of squirrels ('tree rats' as someone wrote on my blog).

Very cute, Kerrri. Robins love strawberries. I think they like all fruit, actually. They are very piggy (but cute) eating my raspberries, red currants, black currants and serviceberries too. :)

Jan said...

Great capture, Kerri. Love it.

It seems to me squirrels will eat almost anything we put out for the birds. They are so cute, though, that it is hard to begrudge them their monopolizing the bird feeder. This is a stunning image that really brings out the the beauty of your subject and his personality.

what a delicacy ...

Country Girl said...

Squirrels will eat anything.

Except gum drops. We put some out one day and they sat there for a week. And when I say we, I mean my husband. I'd never put gum drops out for the animals.

I forgot to say THIS PHOTO IS AWESOME!

I didn't know squirrels liked strawberries, but I think they will try most fruits. Super shot Kerri.

Great photo. Say, if I knew you were putting out strawberries, I'd be there too!

Audrey said...

Great picture. We have an outdoor cat. I have seen just about everything from squirrels to lizards eating her cat chow. Wished I'd had my camera when I stepped out to find 3 lizards eating from her bowl.
It was a funny sight.

Veru cute little red squirrel- I like red ones but not grey.
He looks so cute, how he's holding the strawberry!
Fantastic capture!
