    Post divided into two as there are limits on images in single posts here). This is part 1.

    Squirrels are some of the most argumentative, territorial *ssholes you might ever meet. But even so, there is sometimes a happy ending. First pic is OM-2n + 85-250mm/f5.6, and all the rest Pen-FV + 100mm/f3.5. All Superia 400.

    Part 2.

    Perhaps I can kick him off:



    But he'll shove back:



    Peace at last:



    This is actually a rare scene. Squirrels will not tolerate each other at all with two exceptions - when they are in the nest as pups, or in the coldest part of the winter where they will curl up together for warmth. These two are this year's youngsters and may have been nestmates, but it's also getting cold and that may help them become somewhat tolerant. Be that as it may, the next day they were fighting noisily and at one point both fell off the feeder in a furious furball that looked like something from a Tom & Jerry cartoon. Thick soft snow cushioned the fall, and rivalry currently continues.

    That's a bit of an understatement. Last year I kept finding dead squirrels in my yard. Sometimes with their abdomens chewed out, so I assumed one of the neighborhood cats was a better hunter than most. Then one day I went out to the garden shed, I heard squirrels fighting in the tree above me, as usual, I paid them no mind. Until a squirrel fell on a rock beside me, breaking his back. Turns out we have a samurai squirrel who is a good enough fighter to knock other squirrels out of the very top of trees, killing them with the fall. I've picked up 6 or 8 so far, in a smallish suburban yard.

    I can smell it now! I kept my sour dough starter alive for about five years. Made a lot of bread with it. Some of them looked like this one. Most were baked in a two pound loaf pan. Maybe it is time to make another starter! And, some bread!
