Ready For Winter

This chubby guy looks like he has packed on a lot of weight for the winter ahead and I'm hoping he doesn't have a hint that it is going to be a bad one. He was eating some kind of dried up fruit in a grocery store parking lot and agreed to pose for just a minute. He is one of our black squirrels but looks like he has a lot of the grey showing through too.

"His Chubbiness' brings back memories of almost tame black squirrels when we vacationed near Lake Simcoe.
Thanks for sharing this photo.

What a cute little guy. He does look like he has a winter layer of fat going on there.

He certainly hasn't been going hungry!

He's one smart squirrel. Eat a little now and maybe a little more later. :) He's certainly getting ready. If he has a touch of grey maybe he is an elder squirrel with lots of knowledge and experience. :)

This is one real chunky squirrel. He must have good food supply.

He also seems to be packing some poundage.
