Easily Amused

My office window (2nd floor) looks out onto a woodsey area and a creek. The trees are well-populated in the summer with any number of winged species. We have muskrats, groundhogs and deer, too.

This time of year, it's not so wild, though the squirrel activity kicked up a notch or two this week.

One squirrel (not unlike Scrat) in particular was especially busy. I/we watched his antics for a good long time.

It's quite distracting to see a flash of white belly boing, boing, boinging upside down on a pencil thin tree branch, running hither and yon in pursuit of. . .until finally he reached the prize: a fresh red tree bud that will never be leaves, but was a quite tasty snack for a squirrel.

I wish I had a video!
