For there is not a word in my tongue, but lo, O lord, thou knowest it altogether...
Psalm 139: 4

The little Red squirrel
Usually has a feisty tongue
Chattering on and on,
Loud and strident~
Which is the way
Of this noisy rodent...
Today she was silent
Without a word to say..

Poetry by me AJP

We don't see the red squirrels as frequently as we do the grey squirrels...I happened to get up earlier this morning to find this little critter on our bird feeder.

She graciously let me take her picture without too much problem...Not sure she even saw me through the window.

    She's looking very content with having the feeder all to herself. We have some very lively squirrel wars at our feeders some days.. they're very entertaining..lol. What a lovely capture!!

    This is a great shot, Andrea, esp. for being through the window! We have only gray squirrels in this region.

    I have never seen a red squirrel except in photos, we have just the gray squirrels around here. This photo of her is really great!!!

    I love the little critters. They just have the cutest expressions, and I love the way they use their hands so well. I once had a little red squirrel stand about 3 feet from me and just chatter up a storm. It was in a snowstorm. When I moved toward it a step it ran under my car. I still think the poor thing was cold. Wonderful capture of this little lady, Andrea!!

    Very nice closeup of this beautiful little squirrel! Her red tail reminds me of a fox.
