  1. They are certainly adorable, as long as they are outside and not in your house . You are right about that golden one who looks very well fed for the winter. The squirrels here, busy all summer, certainly seem to get pretty . . . well fed and I know they will be busier when the pecans are ready to be . . . harvested . You really do take some terrific pictures! Thanks for sharing them!
