How precious and he looks like he is thoroughly enjoying whatever it is he is eating. They are just too cute and this one in particular has a very cute smile :)

How interesting your pictures are.

"Please, let me try."

Willie a.k.a Reptoz said...

wow...! I like all these photos. Do the squirrel lives underground or on the trees?

Stephanie said...

I hope they will find more food later and everyday. It must be quite challenging to find food in the desert.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Hi Diane, I think you (or someone) gave him some PIZZA..... I wouldn't share it either... ha

Hugs,
Betsy

He is adorable, great shots Diane. We don't have ground squirrels in this area so it's a real treat for me to see them.

Diane AZ said...

Hi Willie, Thanks for your question. These squirrels live underground but will climb trees to eat flowers or seeds.

Rajesh said...

oh, the first picture is so cute, looked like he was at first surprised by you, but then decided not even your presence can stop him from eating, and from one to two of them :)
