The squirrels were busy digging up and carrying off acorns that were buried last year. This squirrel just froze on the tree with an acorn in its mouth when I took this photo. The squirrel has a sort of guilty, caught in the act expression that amused me.


Closer look at the startled squirrel.


After a moment the squirrel turned its head to look at me, still holding onto its acorn.


The squirrel shifted position a few times before finally disappearing up the tree.
