Fauna and Flora
Enjoying some of the beauties of nature that surround us. Someone once said, "A squirrel is just a rat that knows how to dress." Be that as it may, I find the squirrels in these surroundings to be fascinating. This particular one was posing on a branch about four feet above our "front" door. Most of them do not spook easily, but will move off a bit when one gets within six feet or so. One of our neighbors who is from Renton, Washington and occupies the same lot here in Texas every winter has befriended these furry little beasts. He feeds them regularly. Some of them will eat from his hand, and one or two of them will walk across his shoulders.
