Let’s give it up for squirrels this Wordless Wednesday, which, of course, won’t be all that wordless. Here in Berlin, we are alternating between lockdowns, partial lockdowns and the occasional normal week in between. Last fall we started walking in the park and feeding the squirrels. Hey, like there is anything else to do … and if we cannot travel, we still all need some fresh air. How can you look at these fluffy wonders and be in a bad mood?
Taking photos of squirrels is really not all that easy. They are really fast for a start. They also don’t sit in the sunny spot for you just so you can take a decent picture.
Just here and there one of them is nice enough to sit and pose for a photo.
They also appear a lot more red in real life.
So, they are as rude as they are cute. We only fed them peanuts and walnuts. Once we had a handful of hazelnuts, but, common, that would get way too expensive in the long run
This squirrel should’ve been a fox! We like him, like heaps.
All of them chose walnuts over peanuts, except for foxy beauty here. I was wondering why? Is it because walnuts are native? Smell stronger or are simply bigger? This be kitschig study might not be all that representative.
One thing squirrels don’t dig for sure is sharing. You’ll end up with a royal rumble.
Thanks for flying with be kitschig. I really hope you enjoyed the outstanding beauty of our park squirrels.
Have a happy Hump Day!
