A Nat Geo moment ...
The squirrel was wedged between the branches, munching on berries like it was seated at a buffet table.
We stopped to watch and at first the squirrel didn't seem to notice us. When it did, it took one last nibble and scurried away. We may have interrupted him, but I'm guessing there was a second seating once we were out of sight.
On our walks around the neighborhood, we see fewer people these days.
No wonder. It's colder now and the days are shorter. We have to push ourselves to leave the warmth and comfort of inside. To go outside for the fresh air, sunlight, and the occasional squirrel sighting we so desperately need.
Well, actually, squirrel sightings are not so occasional, there are a lot of squirrels in the neighborhood. Just not so many of them chomping berries.
A Nat Geo moment close to home.
