13 Liner

 Grant took a break from trucks, drivers and loads to see if he could coax a 13 Lined Ground Squirrel to come for some cashews.
 Took less than a minute for this one to pop up.
 Leaning forward for a better whiff.
 A quick snatch for a yummy cashew
 "Definitely tasted like more I think."

 Amazing how she didn't show hardly any fear.
 The reward :)
 "What's this big thing" as she checks out Grant's camera
 Scurrying underneath looking for the cashew bag.

 Testing out Grant's foot.
 Getting yet another one. She must be getting full by now.
 Mission accomplished.
 She's eaten 8 so far!
 Licking away.

 So sweet and cute.
 Grant making her stretch and work for this one.
 Back for yet another.
 The shoe makes a good perch.
 Great view of the 13 lines and spots
Finally full and away she went.


  1. what lovely pics Jeanette, thought at one point the squirrel was going to go inside and up the trouser leg!Your squirrels have lovely markings on their backs the ones here are just plain,ours are friendly in the parks where people feed them but when I had them in the garden of my old house I could not get near,the cat used to chase them at first but soon got bored and ignored them fortunately.

  2. What lovely photos Jenny! have you ever considered turning the photos into fibre art?

  3. I've never heard of a 13-lined ground squirrel. Really cute. We only have tree squirrels (mostly red) in our area, and chipmunks.
    Very nice pics.

  4. Thanks for sharing this, it's so cute!


Thank you very much for stopping by and taking the time to leave me a comment. I appreciate all of them!
