Day 84

Well, let's not think we're the only ones who gain weight in the winter. I thought these little guys are usually scrawny by this time trying to scavenge for almost anything to eat. 
I was wrong.
This little squirrel looks like a bear.
Here is "bear's" nest in the same tree. I think he did really well this year. Good boy! or girl..  ;)

Oh my goodness! That is one healthy squirrel! Beautiful tree! I love the colors on it.

Thanks for your visit today! You had asked what settings I use. I shot all my photos in Manual. There is a big bay window in the front of us. ;) Here are my settings. f3.5, 1.250, 640 ISO

Wow, he is big. We have a nest outside our bedroom window... we've watched it so much and NEVER have seen one come in or out!... but they do sit on the one branch and eat.

You are right, that one is huge.
and by the way, I like how the owl seems to be sitting on the branch. Besides your Name (right under)
Now I understand why you have an owl on your signature (last post :-P )

And thankyou for the link on watermarking the pictures BTW!
