In this picture the squirrel went up a tree and had been traveling from branch to branch then stopped to stare me down for pointing a camera at it.
This picture has an Eastern Gray squirrel eating, possibly one of its common foods such as “hickory nuts, beechnuts, acorns, or walnuts” (Enature).
The squirrel managed to go through a long and instinctive routine in a good half hour. He began to hide when he felt in danger, found food and ate, saved some, interacted with the other animals around it and managed to get through a fence into someone's yard. I never thought that they got so much done in such a minimal amount of time, and this really made me realize that they don’t just run around like we think they do. If you pay attention there is a method to their madness
