Where is the wise? Where is the disputer ? I Corinthians 1: 20

"Red is on the feeder too long"
said the impatient Gray...
She asked "why is that wrong?"
Not liking what he had to say.

Gray thought he was astute
But Red learned to be wise..
Someone had to settle the dispute,
And she might have to compromise.

Both wished to be the winner
But refused to share the dinner.
Red soon got chased away....
Gray in the end got his own way.
Poetry by me AJP

I was lucky to even catch this picture as I was just thinking of taking my camera off the tripod after shooting several pictures of the red squirrel by itself when the gray squirrel came twirling along down the branch ready to chase the red squirrel off the feeder.

    Good shot! Those little rascals can devour a whole suet block in one day! We don't get the color red ones here, only the gray ones.

    I love watching our reds and grays going through their antics. They are very active now as spring has arrived, and shortly the babies will be born. This is a fantastic capture of the two of them, Andrea. I can tell you from my experience, the red will win! I have seen them chase off many grays. But I do love this photo, which is perfectly timed. I love all animals, as you know!! Very well done!!!!

    Thank you all for the comments...In our situation here, Patty we have lots more gray squirrels
    than we have red and I have seen the gray squirrels even slap the rabbits in the face if they
    get too close to them..It is almost like they know there is more of them and they seem to
    rule over the other rodents here in their kingdom...They are fun to watch..
