This morning, I woke up to squirrels at the bird feeder.
Normally, Manny keeps this sort of thing in check. He sits at the window and barks loudly whenever one of the squirrels climbs up the screen or shimmies down the hook. Sometimes the squirrels listen to him, and sometimes they ignore him, but, overall, Manny keeps things from getting out of hand.
But not today. Today, Manny slept in. And, while I tried to take on his role, hollering at the squirrels and tapping on the glass, I had very little success.
I must not have seemed very threatening.
Never mind. If the squirrels were determined to stick around, I decided I might as well take some pictures of them. So, I grabbed my phone.
And, they didn’t pay any attention to that either.
From the dining room table, hoping to get close-ups of the chipmunks next,
