A closer look made me laugh at the trio of squirrels who were inside, standing their ground and yet so loudly warning me to keep away, stay off, do not approach, halt right there!
Go on, study the photo more closely, it is just another limb indeed that has been taken off or broken, but for a moment I thought I'd captured wildlife in action. Appearances can be deceiving....we do not always see what we think it is at first glance.
As I walked along, I created this little rhyme
Squirrels, squirrels in the tree
Why are you so ticked at me?
I am merely walking by,
I won't touch your nut supply.
Squirrels, three you chatter so,
Do you miss December snow?
Is it odd for you to see
Grass so green beneath the tree?
Squirrel trio, do not fret
There will be a winter yet.
Mother Nature will soon blow
Icy northern air with snow.
Squirrels up that limb so fast
Do not flee I'm almost past.
Store your nuts and hide them deep
All the winter yours to keep.
