Or so I thought.
I think I’d rather have these in my yard than hibiscus blooms. But I’d rather have apples than fawns. And the squirrels that aid and abet the other creatures by picking the unripe fruit and tossing the second half into the grass before starting another are not in the contest. And I don’t think the distance from a residence law applies to BB guns.
The metal collar you see on the tree behind her is to keep the squirrels out of the tree. It doesn’t work.
I’m told that squirrel is a tasty, tender little snack.
But for now, little spotted Bambina, you’re safe from everything but exploitation with my camera.
