MY APOLOGIES IN THAT THIS ISN'T A SHARP IMAGE. I TOOK IT THROUGH MY SUNROOM WINDOW.

Pietro said...

What a beautiful and funny image, Carletta! You've had a great sense of timing for this interesting photograph. :-)

Mimi said...

It's still clearer than most of mine, and the moment was perfect, just as he was biting!

judi said...

amazing how big they can open their mouths isn't it? Great capture!

Thom said...

It's beautiful.

It is a funny photo of the squirrel. Just how big can he open that mouth.

Squirrel said...

Great shot!

Adrienne in Ohio said...

He looks very pleased to have found such a treasure!

kaye said...

what a cutie

Jane said...

Great capture, such a sweetie-it won't be long before he hibernates. Thanks for sharing:)

Tricia said...

That's an awful big nut for such a lil mouth. LoL! He has his hands (& mouth) full! hehehe

Thanks so much for your comment on my pics - I appreciate your input & compliments.

Mara said...

The nut is almost as big as its head! How funny...

Squirrel said...

Very cute! They are so much fun to watch.

Judy said...

I find it odd to see a squirrel sitting still, but that may have more to do with my associates than me. Jake has killed half a dozen squirrels. But everyone is right about how wide he can open his mouth - I had to go back and check...

I have watched these little critter all of my life and still I am amazed how they can chew through a hard walnut shell and it doesn't take them long to do it.

They can chew through anything, including cable TV wires. LOL

He is so cute, he is really getting into that walnut. No need to apologize, it's a great shot.

Cute little squirrel & that is a big walnut he has.

Gattina said...

Aaww ! I wished I had such a little cute thief in my garden !

magiceye said...

brilliant capture!

Stephany said...

He's got a mouthful. That's a great shot through a window! Most of mine are covered with dog nose prints. I clean them off and they're back five minutes later.

Carolyn Ford said...

That will keep him busy for awhile! Look at those cute little paws and ears...too cute.

storyteller said...

What a FUN view from your sunroom! Looks like this squirrel found a FEAST ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Willard said...
