We had more than 9 inches of snow in a 24-hour period this weekend, but it didn't stop the squirrels from coming out in search of food. I got a picture of this one as it was digging for sunflower seeds (I left them out a few days ago) on our patio table.

It is very cute to see it. In fact it is always exciting for me to see the wild animals. I may even feed this squirrel with peanuts.

A great photo to share with us!! So glad you had those seeds the little fellow could enjoy. I haven't seen the squirrels here lately, but I can see their nests way up in the trees.

Poor, little feller @srhelmer . At least you gave him something to forage for.
