While yesterday’s squirrel was frantically trying to free himself, this squirrel laid high above him resting with no notice that his friend was in trouble!   I wonder how these squirrels stay warm in these tall trees with really no shelter during the winter months!  I would need an electric blanket!


For this image I painted out some distracting branches around the squirrel’s head and cropped it dramatically.   I also used a border from OnOne’s Perfect Effects 4.

Lynda and Sherrie decided to come back for more fun…so I added them to the participant list.  See the updated participant list over at the Village or here:

  1. Hi Tammy,
    Cute little critter. I’ve often wondered how they stay warm. Our squirrels scamper all over the place and they don’t seem to notice the cold. Have a great day!


  2. The ones around here build large nests high in the trees to retreat to but I think I’d stay put rather than venture out of semi-hibernation. He does have his tail curled over his back..?? for warmth??

  3. I was just wondering the same thing earlier today, as I watch 4 squirrels playing in the snow. They are so small, and cannot possibly have much body fat on them, but somehow they seem to manage nicely.
