Squirrels will scold you when you disturb them, or they will pose when they find a hand-out. My buddy who shot this squirrel while it was "begging" suggested I might provide a wee lunch...

So for that one occassion I put out a lil "daily bread"...

This is not "Whiskers", who has a bump on his or her for forehead; see: www.treknature.com/gallery/North_America/Canada/photo83940.htm

It may be Whisker's mate, as a pair of them seem to visit my "spread".

Hi Jay,
Funny squirrel and very well catched. You're very luck on having it wild, usualy when I seen some they are in cages. You're photo is great, the details are perfect.

PS. You can name it Chip or Dale (in portuguese Tico Ou Teco)

Hi Jay

"For what we are about to receive..." could very well fit the present season to. Although we have already received the "Bread of Life" 2 millennia ago, yet every day we still remain thankful and blessed. That provided me with the reason for picking up this cute antique in your portfolio.

All the best wishes for you and your loved ones during this festive season and even beyond into the year that waits ahead. Love, peace, and happiness for Christmas (the season which engages the whole world in a conspiracy of love) and for the New Year, here is something that Benjamin Franklin once said: "Be at war with your vices; at peace with your neighbours, and let every new year find you a better person".

Thanks for sharing Whisker's mate.
Best regards
