You would think that I would have run out of cute squirrel pictures by now. You would think that no future squirrel pictures would be compelling enough to command one of the four blog spots I have each week. You would think these guys couldn’t get any bolder, more demanding and you would certainly think that they are far from starving. Very far from starving, judging by some of the photos in the gallery and the video at the end.
A little backstory on the main photo might be helpful. I was in the kitchen with Maddie when we heard a loud clunk. It sounded like the mailman had slammed the mailbox shut. I went to the door and peaked out, expecting to see a mail truck pulling away. Instead, I saw a squirrel sitting on our mailbox. I figured he wouldn’t stay long, but I grabbed my phone off the table. I went back and slowly opened the door:
“Good morning! Would you, by any chance have some peanuts?”
We’ve been trying to figure out how the squirrels get onto our roof. We’ve trimmed trees to prevent them, but they still get up there. Now we know, they can climb the siding. The rest of the photos are from a few minutes after the encounter at the door and while sitting with Maddie later in the day.
