Squirrel crunching on a nut-nature photo

There is a little squirrel on the tree top. He was crunching on something and constantly moving, so I couldn't take a decent picture of it.
Still I treasure this photo because this is the only squirrel I've ever seen in my town, in the Botanical Gardens.

The look of a warm season is so nice, the leaves and branches leaving great shadows. The squirrel looks cute up there. I was not a fan of these creatures before, although I am warming up. We have a mulberry tree in our front yard, and when fruit is available, we get plenty of them and birds searching for the sweet fruit. A nice capture!

I'm glad you saw the squirrel and no, they don't stay still for long.The shadows on the limb are wonderful!

That's a lovely photo. All the bright green is gorgeous & it looks to be a great spot to hang out if you're a squirrel :)

PS - I've never seen a squirrel up close, so you're luckier than I am!

How wonderful, you captured him. They are always moving and very difficult to photograph but you got a great shot. I really like the sunny tree limb and shadows, it looks so warm.

Congratulations on the photo but keep your eyes open there may be more.

Have a wonderful weekend,
