Raspberries and a Thief

My raspberry bushes are bursting with berries.
On my morning walk out to the garden to check on them, I saw something furry.
Now I've had a couple of baby bunnies living and hiding out at the base of the bushes, but I was pretty sure they had moved on.

Then I realized this little ball of fur was nestled  up in the bushes.
Coming closer, I discovered it was a squirrel all curled up on his back using the crisscrossing branches as a hammock and my berries as a delicious summer treat.

Really! That little bugger! The squirrels around here give me fits.
 They think that all the work I do is just for them.
Fortunately, he left plenty of berries behind after I shooed him off.

I think I'll have a bowl topped with Greek yogurt for a morning snack.
I do love snacking...with fresh raspberries from the garden.

Of course when those kodak moments happen there is never a camera around! That would have been a great pic!!

Yum! Sounds good to me.

Squirrels can be little buggers but I must say they are so very industrious!

Have fun,

Aren't squirrels just little stinkers!! The ones here are always digging in my flower pots to put their nuts in there.
