Saturday Snapshot




Saturday Snapshot

Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don't post random photos that you find online.

I think the squirrels are planning for a severe winter.

  2. I don't think I have ever seen a squirrel's nest. Or maybe I just didn't know what I was looking at :)

  3. I honestly hope that we have a winter with snow!!! Animals tend to know these things! I always thought they lived inside the tree!!

  6. We have a few nests out back but the trees are so full right now that i can't see them.
    Animals do have a real sense about these things.

  9. Have you been seeing tons of baby squirrels? They are such a pain.

  10. Wow..."tangled" comes to mind. Perhaps they are also trying to discourage unexpected visitors.

    Thanks for sharing...and here's MY SATURDAY SNAPSHOT POST

  11. I have an explosion of squirrels this year and nests in several trees. I think the warm winter helped a lot more of them survive.

  12. Wow...very cool, Diane. I don't think I've ever seen a squirrel's nest up close!

    Well, if your prediction is correct, it would make sense. After last winter, we are overdue for some cold stuff!

    Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

  13. I've never thought about where squirrels live... but never knew they nest in a tree. ;)

  14. I hope we do get snow this year. Not getting any last year started the water table off low and the hot weather with no rain is not helping!

  15. Interesting pictures! I hope out winter is mild again... I am just not a fan.

  22. I wouldn't have even known it had anything to do with squirrels. :) Nothing would surprise me with the weather lately though.

  23. I didn't even know squirrels built nests. Obviously, I'm not much of a nature girl.

  24. Those nests definitely look like they're ready for some heavy weather. Given how dry it's been here year-round--I wouldn't mind a bit if we have a heavy winter.

    Here's my Snapshot.

  25. I did not realize squirrels build house or nest like birds using twigs and leaves.
    You capture the moment.

  26. I've been seeing some of these squirrel huts in the tops of the big pine trees in our back yard lately too...interesting how the animals know what to do and when :)

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree. Many signs are pointing that way.

    Thanks for visiting my old wagon this week.

  28. I think squirrels nests look so messy. They may be anticipating a tough winter, or, after the wind storms around here, they may just have more building material from broken branches. Here's Mine

  29. They are certainly getting ready early. Hopefully, that's not a bad omen!

  30. I'm hoping they are right on that. I'm so ready for winter.

  31. Very cool photos! I hate to think about winter in July though! Are the squirrels a pain at your house? They tease our dogs by dancing along the fence or running across the patio while the dogs have to watch through the glass door. And they chew on everything! They sure look cute but they're annoying.

  32. I know squirrels aren't popular there, but I just love them-it's easy when you don't have to live with them. I'd be very excited to have a squirrel drey in the back yard!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I love that picture! We have tons of squirrels around here and I think they're cute. Their shenanigans don't bother me much!

  35. Wow … I hope they are wrong!
