A Post-Thanksgiving Saturday Snapshot


For some reason I thought this photo taken at Black Canyon Lake high in the White Mountains of Arizona was rather fitting to post after many of us have enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner. This little golden-mantled squirrel looks a bit like how I felt Thursday afternoon! (Feel free to click on the photo to see it in a larger size.)

Thanks so much for stopping by. If you don't already participate in Saturday Snapshot, I hope you'll click over to At Home With Books to take a look at the easy rules and then decide to join us. We believe in sharing the fun!


Do these peanuts make my cheeks look fat?

    1. I'd barely took a seat on the bench when one of them ran over, climbed up my leg, and sat on my lap wondering where the food was!

    1. These little critters are used to being fed, so they have very little fear.

    1. I laid a smorgasbord of sunflower seeds and unshelled peanuts around my feet and clicked away while they gorged themselves.

  17. We don't have squirrels in Australia. We do have a squirrel glider, but it's actually a possum. So I do find your pics of squirrels rather enchanting :-)
