Say not thou, What is the cause that the former days were better than these? for thou does not enquire wisely concerning this. Ecclesiastes 7: 10

Feeding the belly
Presents a sweet situation.
With front feet stuck in jelly,
Squirrels love the sensation
And definitely not too picky,
When e'er toes get sticky;

They claim the days of yore
Of years long gone before...
Could not compare to this...
What was then will be no more
The past is not a squirrels wish,
But to play now in a jelly dish!
Poetry by me AJP

I just cleaned the dish out again and put fresh grape jelly in it for the Orioles who have returned and they love it! The young red squirrels love it too and they enjoy rocking back and forth on the dish like a kid on a swing and also do their stretching exercises at the same time. I think this picture tells the story better than I could:)

    Ever the great opportunists.. this image tells a lot about the squirrels and how clever they really are at whatever challenges presents them with a tasty meal. A simply beautiful capture and theme entry, Andrea!! Voted.
