It always interests me how nature works and how animals know better than we do the changing of the seasons.
Not long ago I noticed two of my cats sitting in my kitchen window staring intently at something. I took a glance at the tree in my front yard and watched a little squirrel scurry up the tree then come back down a minute or so later with a pine cone in its mouth. It ran over to a spot on the lawn and buried the pine cone. Then, it ran back up the tree for another. It repeated this process several times and entertained my cats for a good ten minutes. Looks like winter is on its way and this little ball of fur is stocking up.
Forgive the blurriness in this image, I took it through my kitchen window which could stand to be cleaned a little more often than it is.
Until next time…
