A Single Photograph

"A squirrel leaping from bough to bough, and making the wood but one wide tree for his pleasure, fills the eye not less than a lion,--is beautiful, self-sufficing, and stands then and there for nature."
- Ralph Waldo Emerson -

  4. He looks like he's been storing up for the winter! we see the squirrels in our yard burying nuts all over the place. I wonder how they remember when they put them?

    1. He looks like he's eaten a lot over the summer! And he probably has. It's a conservation area where people are constantly walking through. And when they do, they also feed the animals along the way.
