Zunday Zen … I spy …

In my Garden, Musings, Nature, Photography, Zunday Zen

a rodent … no …
a hardworking hipster Portlandia squirrel

lugging an acorn up the old Douglas fir
moving so quickly it’s almost  a vertical blur

munching, crunching, keeping an eye on the scene
all while hungrily enjoying the local forest cuisine

From Portlandia to Michigandia greetings we send
to Parker and Linda from your Oregon friends.

Have a Zen Zunday!

  1. Hi Sabine – thank you for linking Parker and me to your very cute blog post. I love this picture of your squirrel shimmying up this big Douglas Fir with a huge acorn – looks half as big as he is! Then he sits on the tiniest little branch to enjoy it. So sweet!! I am on my way down to the Park now, then home to work in the yard … wet leaves – not too enticing. Thank you again for linking my gluttoness squirrel post. 🙂

    • You are welcome Linda! Your squirrel stories have made me appreciate them more, though I’m still not too fond of them in the yard. Once they got used to getting fed they quickly turned aggressive if things didn’t get put out for them in time. I love seeing them up on the lookout post! 😉

    • Marlene, he’s regular size, just way up on the tree. That’s the favorite hangout for the squirrels to keep an eye on the happiness down below. A couple of times we saw an owl there at night. We could only see the silhouette and the glowing eyes! My Sunday was zen and I hope yours too! 😉

    • Squirrels will do that! They chewed through the wire hangers of a couple of feeders so they’d fall down. I keep challenging them since some of our neighbors feed them. At home I like them at this distance! 😉
