See the squirrel, just behind the tree giving me the evil eye?
It came back down for another bite and then noticed another squirrel moving in on it's apple territory. Not happy about that at all! Tail was swishing all crazy like and it was tucking the apple into it's belly.
The other squirrel got too close and to my surprise the one protecting it's food, grabbed the whole apple and shimmied up the tree. It was quick though, so it's head is just leaving the frame as I snapped the picture. You can see just a hint of the apple.
You will not get my apple!!
Sadly, my batteries went dead just as the other squirrel ran up the tree to try and claim some of the apple. The current apple holding squirrel tossed the fruit back down to the ground, ran around to the other side of the tree, down to the apple, grabbed it and took off for another part of our yard. It was actually quite funny.
