Because to every purpose there is time and judgment, therefore the misery of
man is great upon him....Ecclesiastes 8:6

Bracing himself against the snow,
The squirrel was driven to eat....
Winter for them is not always sweet,
But this is the life that they know...
Poetry by me AJP

I felt sorry for this poor little critter but at the same time he had my respect that he cared enough to fulfill his purpose and he accepted his lot even though the weather was miserable today ... he had to eat quickly before the snow covered the sunflower seeds and the corn...I caught him between a blink as the snow flew in his eyes..

    Oh, this makes me shiver to see the squirrel with snow on him. It makes an excellent nature shot, Andrea!!!

    Not to nice for the squirrell...but the way you captured him/her is very good. The snow and the fur really tells the pun intended:0)

    He is really eating all he can get while he has the opportunity. A lovely capture and generous donation to wild life my friend!
