What's That?

In the corner of our yard, there is a Very Tall cluster of Palm Trees that resemble bamboo, only much bigger around. Yesterday, the dogs kept running over there and jumping up and down. I heard rustling noises all day, but could see nothiing. late last night I almost captured what lives deep in the heartt of the palms.

the fronds between me and that little critter way back in his hidy hole prevented me from getting a clear shot.

Sandra it looks like a squirrel to me. That white underside is a dead giveaway. Have a good Saturday!

Definitely a squirrel... Don't remember having them down there when we lived in Florida... We have tons of them up here ---so if you want more, I'll send you some.... ha

Hugs,

Well, these are fabulously mysterious pictures! I like the angle, the light, and the two different ways you have shown us. It is some kind of aquirrel. Do you see many squirrels in Florida? Well, does Florida even have squirrels? Judy will love this!! Keep us posted!

Oops! he says, I've been caught!

George said...

I imagine this critter didn't want to be caught, but you did a good job.

I've got three of those little critters hanging out at the feeder in my front yard. i could send them your way to keep yours company. Of course mine don't have those evil looking red eyes :)

They might be squirrels. I like trying to capture them on film, but haven't gotten a good picture yet.

LOL!! How cute!! That muct be a great place to nest for the winter.

Yes, that post on the snake and lizard is a repost Sandra. Adrian wants to use it for his monthly link and they cannot see it now my blog is set to private so I put it on there for him and his readers. What an inconvenience this is now for everyone!!

If you have flowers from bulbs and they have not been dug up, then your critter must not be a Mississippi squirrel. Cute pix!

Not a mystery, definitely a squirrel. A very squirrely squirrel from the sound of it. It's hard to judge the size but I would guess he is an Eastern Gray, looks too small for a Fox squirrel.

Great catch Sandra, they can be hard to get shots of if they don't want to be seen.

Cute little shy squirrel there. Nice job on cleaning it up for a better view.
