The hand of the diligent shall bear rule: but the slothful shall be under tribute....Proverbs 12: 24

The squirrel doth rule
Superior o'er the hare
But he can be cruel
To not want to share!

In his conceited mind....
A rodent who can't climb
And sleeps under a tree,
Is not as smart as he:)
Poetry by me, AJP

    Thank you everyone for your comments...I have never seen a squirrel strike out at a rabbit
    before either but when I saw the rabbit creeping closer and closer to the squirrel with the very curious look on its face I knew it would be in trouble...I anticipated that something would happen but not sure what.....I wish I would have set my camera on a faster there is a little blur from the action but I am just glad I caught the moment before it disappeared!
