My Red Squirrel Buddy

  1. While trying to entice some nuthatches to feed out of my hand I was interrupted by this red squirrel who carried on a very animated conversation with me. I chose not to respond!
    Incessant chatterbox
    Once it started to be political I walked away.

  2. Your photos provide more than ample evidence that, indeed, you responded very well. Both photos are worth zapping the few, tiny, bright spots in the background.
  3. Nice shots! I really like them both.

  4. Good one!
  5. Do you mean the snow flakes?
  6. Thanks Alexis and Georgie too...Trooper had an animated conversation with the squirrel as well. His interactions typically elicit a squirelmucil reaction.
  7. It's a Canadian squirrel..we have Liberals vs Conservatives battling it out in this province.
  8. I wouldn't know they are snow flakes if you hadn't explained that. If there had been lots of snow flakes, that would have been a nice characteristic. In this case, there are so few that I would zap them. It's your photo so, of course, do what you think is best. Whatever you do or don't do, I like both photos.
  9. Thanks's good to get constructive feedback..I will probably clone them out cause they don't add anything to the image.
  10. Snowless versions:

  11. Bob - Nice shots and a good choice; I always walk away when the conversation gets political. Fortunately, the squirrels we've got only come for the food! DSC_7116.JPG

  13. Now they've become climate change deniers :rolleyes::D
  14. They can be very influential
  15. There is nothing better than an interactive squirrel! Love these little critters!

  17. I have been following that race... so the squirrel is just plain nuts!!!! I still really love the shots.

    "mom, maybe the squirrel wants everyone to vote Green..." - Georgie Beagle
  18. Another explanation is that the squirrel is a Millennial. In America, 70% of Millennials don't identify with a political party.
  19. OK, but this is a Canadian squirrel.
  20. Probably emigrated from America
