What a racket those squirrels were making down in the woods
yesterday. They got my attention and I wondered what they were
up to. I had been trying to get a close picture of the two that
have been playing around near the house for quite a while
but not having a powerful enough lens keeps me from getting a
close up of them. They're very wild here in the hills and not tame
like their cousins the city squirrels so getting close to them
is out of the question. I just do not sneak as well as I did in my
younger years when I hunted with my cousins and grandpa.
Anyway hearing their squawking I grabbed up the camera to see if I
could see what had them fussing so and hoping again to get a picture.
I spotted them easily because of the lack of leaves and
by then they had become as silent as church mice.
This one was sitting so still and watching the ground.
The other squirrel was also still as if it had gotten frozen
while going up the tree limb.
They both did not move at all. As I watched them the
reason for their squawking and frozen condition came
walking out of the under brush.
One of the feral cats came slinking out.
They watched him move off up into the yard
and then they both took off through the trees.
