Close Encounters of the Nut Kin'd

I am often in the orchard in the morning before it gets too hot, and most mornings lately I have seen the squirrel legging it across the grass when I arrive, to the safety of the neighbouring orchard. Yesterday however, it allowed me within about 5m for some minutes, and even posed for photographs! I assume it's become habituated and my presence, so long as I am quiet and move gently, is tolerated. It was unworried enough to eat and groom when it knew I was there, so hopefully I am just part of the landscape now.

Wot you lookin' at!

How about my cute and cheeky look?

Betcha can't see me now!

Totally cute! I like the reds. Much nicer looking than the old greys we're used to from the US.

What a cute little fella. Nothing like those guys here, except for the possums that is!!!

What a sweetie! Ours won't let us get close--far too wary 'cos of our cats

Lovely! Like Walt, I prefer the red ones to the Korean ones we have in California.
