Autumn – 30 Days of Photos Day 28

Nothing says Autumn quite like a fat squirrel preparing for Winter by desperately stuffing his face with a carrot.

  • That looks like a bribe, doesn’t it?

  • Nice!! I freaking HATE squirrels.

  • That dude needs to go on weight watchers. Of course, I say that as I sit here and eat an entire bag of Halloween candy.

  • My god, that’s a fat squirrel. I bet it’s tasty.

    Great photo, Mike, you captured it perfectly. 🙂

    That’s the fattest squirrel I’ve ever seen. Which reminds me that my daughter was once attacked by a crazy squirrel. Bit her finger. We worried about rabies, but not enough to go to the doctor. It worked out okay, except that she’s still alive. I hate kids.

  • He’s as fat as my dog!!!!! SQUIRREL!!!!!

  • Cute photo. Mother Nature continues to work with you for good photos.

  • What an awesome photo!! My yard is filled with squirrels and sadly, I don’t enjoy them thanks to my dog always trying to catch them…from inside the house. She has destroyed the window frames, screens, and blinds trying to get to them. Funny squirrel story though….one day my friend was in my yard a rather hard dog toy came out of the sky and hit him on the head. I laughed my ass off yelling “The sky is falling, the sky is falling!” as he rubbed the new bump forming on his head. Then….a rawhide fell on his head. Then a rope toy. We looked up and a squirrel had taken all the dog toys from my yard and put them in his/her nest to the point of over-flowing. Funniest thing ever!!!

    Watch out mr squirrel, dufus has an air gun. Also, you are seriously fat (mr squirrel)…

  • That’s insane. I’ve never heard of a squirrel doing such a thing!

  • She does. Your graphic reminds me of that fable where one guy dances all summer while the other guys works hard all season. Come winter, the hard worker survives while the dancer starves. Your squirrel is not the worker 🙂

  • And there were many more just like him!

  • Well then bring them here to this park. The squirrels will eat anything.

  • It’s a chunk of carrot.

  • Yep. And there were so many in the park that day. By the time I finished taking the pic, I was surrounded by about 6 of them, all ready to see if I was food or not. Bold little freaks.

  • I’ll be honest, the squirrels almost got me too.

  • Thanks!

  • It does, but someone had actually already fed them, so all I had to do was point and click.

  • I’d never waste cheese on a squirrel. Horrors!

  • Thanks!

  • They’re creepy. The park is full of them and they will stalk you whether you have food or not.

  • As fat as he is, the squirrel is actually eating healthier.

  • Wait, are you saying that squirrels are some kind of Finnish delicacy?

  • They’re organized and militant.

  • True, but if my squirrel keeps drinking she might not notice she’s starving OR she might be getting your little squirrel to share his nuts.

  • They climb up the steps to our deck and stare at me like I’m really going to toss them more bird seed after they just finished destroying the feeder. I do love watching their in-tree antics, especially the babies. Once they’re on the ground, they’re out of control.
