Little snowflake squirrel…

...mid-morning solstice snow dots your fur and falls quietly with promise. And your tiny little paws hold seeds you can eat while three faces on the other side of the glass watch, thinking you’re the most important creature on earth at that moment.

I'm not sure my comment got posted so I'll repeat it best I can. Lovely post of the gray squirrel, and I'll look at mine more closely next time she visits. Also the paintings of the BAEA & the entire post, thank you. Happy holidays!

The birds and critters ALL get very hungry this time of year, don't they Kelly? You got a great picture of the squirrel in the snow.

Merry Christmas.
Hugs,

Awww, how sweet. I don't know what it is, but the snow makes them look even more cute than usual. I just wanted to go out and hug all my little squirrels once the snow started to fall!

What a beautiful squirrel! When I was in London I was amazed how close the squirrels came to me, here they are all wild and get scared very easily.

Merry Christmas to you! Hope you are having a lovely time:) xo
