Thine O Lord is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty: for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom O Lord, and thou art exalted as head above all..I Chronicles 29: 11

The least notorious
For winning fights...
Could become victorious
When setting its sights.

A war that begins
May never stop
But it all depends,
On who stays on top
And doesn't fall
To be head above all
Poetry by me, AJP

Yesterday these baby red squirrels were having a scrap on the feeder before I shot the previous picture where they made up. If you notice the little guy on top is holding on to the red jelly dish which he does not want to share...

    Thank you all for your kind words...These little guys could melt your heart and they are my favorite breed of squirrel...Charming personalities...I don't feel the same affection for the gray squirrels because they are somewhat brash at times in wanting to hog the feeder and not let the birds get on and they pick fights with the red squirrels as well....These guys however will sometimes win and put their power to the pedal to the gray squirrels.

    I did think that this was a mirror shot at first. It is so charming with the squirrel on top holding onto the jelly dish and trying to keep the other squirrel from getting any of the jelly. I was glad that they made up and shared the jelly after all : )

    Never a dull moment with red squirrels around, lol. I`m always amazed at their dexterity.. going up or down or whichever way they wish and you`ve captured that just perfectly here! What a sweet shot..

    The ones in our yard (many, many of them) are like this. They are so much fun to watch! What antics they go through. I love this photo you've taken of these two. They are so funny, as one minute they can be involved in a championship wrestling match, and the next minute they're snuggling each other like long time friends. Wonderful photo, Andrea!!
