My Fingers

This is for QuillDancer, who asked in the last picture if that was my finger that squirrel was reaching for. No, it’s not my fingers the little nut eater wants but the nut that I’m holding in them.

    Okay, my question was poorly phrased. What I wanted to know — and you have answered — was if he was brave enough to eat from your fingers. Apparently he is. Intrepid little fellow.

    Such courage! A long time ago my husband and I befriended a squirrel we called little grey. She came and visited when we sat outside in the summer and took nuts from us. She would put her front paws on your hand to hold it in place while she grabbed the nut. Where we live now there are so many that feeding them nuts could bankrupt a person.
