I just took this picture of a squirrel lazily sunbathing on the back garden fence. Its a beautiful day today which amazes me because we usually get a smog following bonfire night.

And yes I know the fence needs a coating again and have John on the job now he has finished the shed roof. Laughing

I know they are classed as vermin but at the end of the day who brought them to this country in the first place.
We see lots here, they are very funny to watch and still one of gods creatures.

Though far more hardy and existing in areas where Red Squirrels never would they also compete for resources and though not certain I think there may be a disease based issue where they are resilient but reds aren't.
Pigeons are also classed as pests, one of gods creatures, and while not having sampled squirrel I can confirm pigeons are delicious!

To be honest Kevin, I just thought it was a nice picture and for me very unusual as everything is usually out of focus especially if it can move of its own accord. Laughing

It's a nice picture, it was very well shot, sorry, taken. I enjoy seeing the squirrels in my mum and dads garden, even though they are for the peanuts.





















Squirrel does taste nice, it's like tender sweet chicken, and not at all nutty.
