NO POINTS PLEASE!
One day last summer I left a big Danish in my back yard, just to see what would happen…
First the treat was discovered by some small birds, who had a great time until they were chased away by one of my furry neighbours!
The squirrel too found the Danish to be very much to her liking and she was eating for quite a while. Eventually the animal was full but still a lot left of the pastry…
Then the squirrel got the brilliant idea to bring what was left for later consumption! The only way the little rascal can carry things is in the mouth, and since the piece of food left was way too large for easy transportation I was so lucky to be watching quite a show during the next minutes..!
This image is only one in a series illustrating the situation as the animal was pushing and dragging the big Danish across my backyard - hopefully it will put a smile on your face too!
I just added a workshop image from the same series, have a look!
NO POINTS PLEASE!

on devine que tu les ailes ces petits animaus et figure-toi que l'écureuil est mon animal fétiche. C'est pourquoi j'apprécie doublement cette photo aux qualités techniques indéniables.

what a sight! Seems like that danish was definitely worth going through the trouble for!
Thanks for the nice shot and the cute story.
Have a great mood! ;)

A funny situation where the suqirrel is wondering how he will bring his food to the nest. It is well framed. It is clear and sharp. The light is making the colors to stand out. Have a nice day.
Urs (14082) 2010-01-20 5:17
It is so hard not to give points for such a lovely shot, in particular as it is your fury friend. I like him or her a lot, if I only would be able to get such shots of the squirrels around our condo in Bangkok! Well done, my friend
gervaso (14773) 2010-01-20 5:33
So you decided to celebrate the good mood day with a squirrel! Hehehe! It's a good idea, for this animal always reminds me of joy, perhaps because of the cartoons I used to watch of them. Great contribution to the theme!

Amazing squirrel! Amazing scene. Very fine scenery. Superb dynamic shot. Fantastic effect.
feather (51130) 2010-01-20 6:17
Great shot and perfect for the theme. The pastry is almost as big as the squirrel. She obviously liked it to go to so much trouble.
francio64 (39888) 2010-01-20 6:19
Sembra che lo scoiattolo voglia tenere tutto per sè il frutto :))
jmdias (65105) 2010-01-20 6:38
nice view of the animal solving a sweet problem, nice theme for the day. perfect framing, colors and light. nice job

Still a quite beautiful photograph on your friend the squirrel which is an ideal subject for the topic of the day initiated by our Marianne friend. That causes good mood, it is sure… Such as your photograph in WS. A small a video to add additional tenderness to this photograph, thank you Pablo.
With all my friendships and with soon,

Excellent participation with this very funny scene very well collected.
jlbrthnn (76037) 2010-01-20 12:42
Good evening Pablo,
Fast movements of a squirrel and its permanent vigilance sound a spectacle captivating and funny. Beautiful image amusing for this contribution.
Have a good evening
fabianoleite (11763) 2010-01-20 13:00
Good contribution for the theme. The squirrel reminds me of Chip and Dale, which provokes laughter and fond memories of childhood. Congratulations and Happy Good Mood Day!
JT50 (1491) 2010-01-20 13:16
Excellent capture with a note
that put you in a humorous mood.
Happy good mood day.

Parabéns e Abraço

simpatica immagine in tema con la giornata.
Bella l'ambientazione e il soggetto sullo spuntino...
josepmarin (58359) 2010-01-21 2:20
You hunted this squirrel "in fraganti"!!!
It is a very nice and spontaneous scene, perfect for the Good Mood Day on TE.
A good contribution to Marianne's theme.

A nice squirrel, obviously in a good mood today!

Ciao Pablo, lovely squirrel for mood day, beutiful natural colors, very well done, ciao Silvio
Amaz (11475) 2010-01-21 14:37
My friend Pablo, sorry to say honestly but I don't agree with you!!
Mood day without "smiles" is not LOGIC!!!
This funny capture and I have no dubt that it deserve its "smile"...
I hope not to get you angry becasue I do not share your opinion in this case...
gildasjan (43650) 2010-01-22 12:20
Il a l'air bien occupé cet écureuil bien figé dans cette image.
gunbud (34066) 2010-01-22 19:27
Another fine image from your red squirrel treasure chest.
The little rascale isn't gonna leave that tasty Danish for those noisy black birds.
Her tail looks very impressive noting that she has a high opinion of herself as well she should.
Giorgio (11279) 2010-01-25 4:02
- Hey, hey! The famous sweet little squirrel is back Pablo, good idea for this post for the good mood day, bravo!
All the best.
AiresSantos (56155) 2010-01-26 5:25
Nice picture of the Squirrel with fine colours and details
Have a nice day
skippy007 (12510) 2010-01-28 22:53
Hello Pablo, lovely fun shot although I prefer the WS version with the bird, very suitable for this occasion.
foozi (7101) 2010-02-06 19:00
lovely moment well captured with the squirrels well seen.
I like to see the colours and action well captured. The colour is nice and well contrasted in lively colour.
maloutim (9639) 2010-03-08 12:28
"Good Mood Day" was nearly 2 months ago, but it should really be everyday, shouldn't it?
Really funny how tame and cheeky your furry neighbours have become!
Lovely capture and good story!
I like the WS too, but I feel so sorry for the little wagtail, which seems to have no chance left.
I took the advice of a French association for the preservation of birds "LPO", which was to vary the places where I put food; so now, the other birds apart from the blue tits have got more of a chance to get a "piece of the cake"!
AKITA (15125) 2010-04-13 17:27
your interesting experiment and observation,
and this record shot is so lovely,
in my feeling, the squirrel is very clever, it is one of next ruler animal on the earth after human...
anyway, beautiful and humorous figure is nice,
jafadabret (56501) 2010-04-20 2:03
C'est encore une belle photo de ton ami l'écureuil. J'aime les couleurs et les formes de cet animal qui vient de s'approprier de la nourriture laissée à sa disposition.
