Can I eat that?

April 1, 2008, our back yard in Columbus, Ohio.


  1. My squirrels are not polite enough to ask!

  2. Soo cute! I agree with Ruth, mine are not polite also!

  3. He's so cute! I love watching them in my backyard.

  4. Cute shot! I'm pretty fond of squirrels. We have a really active population in this neighborhood!

  5. I always wanted a squirrel for a pet! Looks like you've got one.

  6. Very cute! I was taking squirrel pics today,too. I never get tired of them.

  7. Yes, very cute! The title is perfect for the photo. This squirrel looks as if he's about to reach out and grab it, just waiting for your consent.

  8. Too cute and much friendlier than the raccoons we have!

  9. Die, rat bastard, die! Er...sorry...can't help myself...

  10. Ruth- Really? I'm bombarded with requests. Too many to handle :)

    Tom- Ok, I guess something is strange about our squirrels.

    Linda- Yeah, this one was too close to not take a photo.

    Thanks Dave- Yep, we seem to have dozens as well.

    Rambling- This one guy named Dave that we used to take our cars to get fixed supposedly had pet squirrels. He was a pretty weird dude. I asked him what he fed them and he said "granola bars"

    Mary- They do have pretty interesting behaviors.

    Thanks David!

    Megan- Yes. The raccoons certainly don't ask permission for anything they do.

    Lana- LOL!

    Chris- Thank you, thanks for stopping by and commenting!


  11. LOL. This was a great photo. Every time I think about that expression, I laugh.

    Great post and photo.

    Just great.


  12. Tom: How do you get them to pose? Is it just feeding them?

  13. Oh, they look so meek..but we all know the truth!! ;o) Great shot Tom.

  14. Troy, thank you very much, I love taking photographs and getting feedback. It feels great to know that a tiny moment that I captured in time here in Ohio can bring a smile to people's faces across the blogosphere!

    Beth Ellen- Thank you very much!

    Ana- thank you, will miss your posts and comments!

  15. Oh how adorable!
    I have a little squirrel coming to our deck for peanuts too.

    I just dropped by to say hello
    and to let you know there is a
    little contest going on at My Serentity Garden
    If you’d like to join in.

  16. He's so cute! Nice of him to pose for you.

  17. Hi Becky- Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I've never tried any contests here but I have heard that it is a great way to get people's attention and make them loyal readers!

    Byrnning Bunny- Thank you!

    Kylee- Thanks, glad this photo made you laugh.
