I love this, Carletta. I'll bet they do wish for something to warm their feet sometimes. Cute post!

It needs a pedicure!

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Awwww! Poor little thing -- I hate to have cold feet ;>)

Thom said...

He looks like he could use some pecans or something more than snow boots LOL. Excellent photo my friend :)

Rose said...

Oh, a little cutie. Great capture. Is it a pet, like Mama Squirrel. It has that look like it recognizes you.

Quilldancer said...

What a cutie! He might need some peanuts, too!

Tricia said...

Oh my gosh, he's such a handsome fella there in the snow! Great great shot

SquirrelQueen said...

Oh Carletta, I love it! She is so beautiful, what a sweet little face. I think she is telling you she is looking for the nuts she buried in the fall and wondering if you will help her search. Great capture.

Love this picture, Carletta! As a squirrel watcher I know it's not so easy to get a shot like this!

I like to watch them and even wrote a little fun poem about that! :)

Poor squirrel, it's so cold in the snow!
I know it because I try it myself, it's hard to walk, maybe some boots can help indeed! :)

Ooh , I do love squirrels though I know they are condemned as pests by many - and this is a WONDERFUL shot! I'm always delighted to watch their antics and listen to their chittering when they're cross :-)

Carletta: Very nice capture of the Fox Squirrel. They have the ice claws to get around, no boots required.lol

Michael said...

Cheeky one. :)

storyteller said...

Love the title ... and your nifty photo of this squirrel who seems to be posing for you ... perhaps looking for a handout ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

George said...

What a great picture. He definitely looks as if he wants to put on some boots.

Denise said...

He just looks like he is asking for boots - and gloves - doesn't he? An adorable picture. I hope he's nice and warm in his nest right now.

Ebie said...

Great capture Carletta! And what a striking pose. Maybe nuts, and not boots, but I like the title!

lisaschaos said...

Adorable! I never thought of them needing boots but he sure does look like he needs some, lol.

Jientje said...

He looks like a happy fellow, despite the cold!

Stephany said...

I took a squirrel in the snow shot too but it wasn't even close to being as good as this. Fantastic capture! (His nails need to be trimmed...lol)

Although they are all great shots, I have to say my favorite one is the squirrel at the end. Man, what a fun shot!
