Balboa Park Squirrel
Squirrels make me feel the change of the seasons. To me, they seem to be more active during those transitional days. I could be totally wrong about that. Maybe I'm just more observant of them during the season's changes. Who knows?
I found this squirrel snacking on these palm fruit in Balboa Park a couple of days ago. He was making quite a ruckus. So much for the quiet of nature! He scraped his teeth against the seed creating a loud staccato noise: squeak-squeak-squeak! I stopped and watched him go through several fruit. He sniffed out the desired produce then plucked it off. Peeling off the outer layer, spitting it out until he found the inner, squeaky center. Didn't seem like there would be all that much left of the fruit once peeling it, but there must be something tasty about it!
I hope you are enjoying the squirrels, where ever you are.
