Squirrel, the requested video!


l5fegodu1n.jpg

A Bonus! There are two videos in here!

I saw in a previous post that there was much interest in a video about Marian and squirry's adventures and bided my time to catch an incident on video. Sure enough, the moment arrived and mother nature was benevolent in granting me not a moment, but instead a few minutes.
Note that the videos were made free-hand and please forgive any shakes.
Let's have a look!

Here is the first video!

And an introduction to "Squirry's" husband!

He is pure wild and not friendly at all!

But first, the second video!

I took about 5 videos and selected these 2!

Now on to the wild husband.
For some reason he doesn't eat our nuts and finds his own!

But he is also a worm thief!

wsmg41w33u.jpg

At first he sits to see if all is safe!

gn31fmjhim.jpg

Then he skims down the tree!

z0hmf0pqg7.jpg

Here he goes over the flower pot!

jen1w0v6gw.jpg

Boom! He jumps onto the Robin's worm feeder!

He grabs a worm and scatters at a fast pace back to his seat!

Finally, for those that say squirrels don't eat meat, here's the evidence!

Oh! And before I close, let me show you a wet squirry that was washed by the rain to be restored to it's normal colors.

The rain has washed her clean!

And here's the moon of the day to end the post!

That's all Folks!

Note: The videos and the photos are my own and unedited except for cropping to upload.

We have certainly landed in the middle of a great new place at this home that is basically settled in the eye of nature. A hive of daily activities occur and it is indeed a photographers mecca. I cannot tell you how many great shots I have missed here that would have delighted you, but I know that the ones that I did get are also appreciated.

We hope that you have enjoyed the pictures and the videos and thank you for visiting a post by @papilncharity

Very cool photos and videos. They sure like to jump around, eh?
So, do they eat those nuts right away or are they just storing them for later?

10.10.2019 15:26
0

Thank you Sir, in this case it was just after the rain and squirry was hungry. You can see her hanging on Marian's back in the second video eating the nuts right there.

Only when they have had enough to eat, usually about 6 to 8 nuts, will they run around and bury the rest.
Glad that you liked the post my friend.

Thank you Sir George and I am glad that you enjoyed the videos.
I made an amazing discovery today.
The reason why I was searching for a free video converter was that I wanted to convert my videos into MP4.
But today for the first time, I saw that my camera automatically downloads my videos into MP4. So I loaded them directly into Youtube and it worked.
So glad!
Blessings!

They are so agile. I like how it hangs by the back feet whilst using the front ones to eat. A fun experience with a wild animal. Next I want to see you hand-feeding a lion :)

10.10.2019 20:43
0

Hahaha, I also like their hanging and dining action Sir Steve.
As far as Lions are concerned,there are many places that tame lions and that the public can feed, but I have never been to one as I seriously dislike the removal of wild animals from the wild.
It could be possible to hand feed a wild lion after he had eaten, but I am not the one to try it Lol

Ignore them. There are various tiny accounts downvoting, but they can do no damage. It may just be someone striking out because they were caught out misusing Steem.

Thank you. I have had this once before and it's so irritating.
Who in their right mind would downvote a charity?
They certainly got what they deserved and I am afraid that things will get much worse in their lives.
For they know not what they do!

Hahaha, I think that it is just a reflection of our human status my friend.
Men and women are from different planets I am told Lol

An incredible bond of trust the squirrel has with Lady Marian that I'm sure took quite some time to instill! Btw, that's not meat the squirrel is eating -- it's pasta in the form of spaghetti! 🍝🐿
Excellent photographs @papilloncharity. For some unknown reason, I am not seeing any videos to play from the @eSteemapp on my android smartphone.

11.10.2019 05:10
0

Are you saying that the videos don't appear on your smartphone Lady Nina?

I wonder if anyone else has this problem? As that would mean that I have to crop the size of the videos.
They are in the MP4 format, but let me see if I can drop the size!

Blessings!

11.10.2019 05:40

Only t HG e inafes appear -- nothing to click to play. It's not just your videos either. But I can defintely verify after you decrease the size!

11.10.2019 05:46

Thank you, then I have no idea about the problem, as others here have commented on the videos?
Maybe some technical person here can resolve the issue for us?

Thank you. It was indeed a great surprise the very first time one of them jumped on me when we moved in here. That was about 2 months ago, but now it has become a daily thing.

Great news is that there were two small ones in the garden today and one small one must heave seen squirry jump up on the ledge of the study window to get a nut. Lo and behold, later the little one did the same and of course I gave him a nut.

Soon I will have a window ledge lined with squirrels hahaha

Thank you Sir @janton and it was indeed a great experience.
Of course many times since then and the lesson here is to never have no nuts when squirry un-expectantly jump on you. Marian went outside to feed the geese and guess who jumped onto her shoulder?
She had no nuts and squirry started searching in her hair for nuts hahaha.
Of course at her call I rushed outside with some nuts Lol
Hope that your Sunday is good.
Blessings!

Ah! And I love the mild temperatures.
Our famous African sun is gearing up as 29 deg. Celsius here today.
I walk from shadow to shadow hahaha.

13.10.2019 20:56
0

Not here my friend, I think the closest that we get at the southern tip is about 35.
Up in the northern parts they can at times go into the early 50s.
Been there and inside a car with no aircon it feels like an oven.
In my army days up there, we could crack an egg and bake it on a flat rock in the sun.
Blessings!

14.10.2019 07:34

50's!?? Holy smokes, that is incredible! lol..no thanks. That would take some serious conditioning just to be able to walk around outside. so where you are now is a big improvement in that respect.

14.10.2019 16:37
0

I picked up a serious skin condition in 2012 that I am still fighting even now Sir @janton and I simply have to stay out of the sun.
So, I dress accordingly and I am a shade man. Luckily in nature there are lots of trees over here.
Blessings!

14.10.2019 19:57

Oh I see, well it's healthier to stay out of the hot sun anyway isn't it? I'm starting to stay out of it more as I get older.

If only we knew this when we were younger Sir @janton.
Many a day I worked only in a short pants and boots on the construction sites. Even today on that art farm I had a very hard time to stay out of the sun.

lol! Well, they know how to work all day in the heat without getting skin damage and without getting dehydrated, I think it's the way they were raised so yes in that regard they are much smarter than some Texans! I'm slowly adapting though. I no longer care much if I have a good suntan!

16.10.2019 15:52
0

Hahaha, I am lucky as my skin is dark in any case. Too much sun and I could be classified as another race Lol
It's an age old secret to cover up against the sun and one only has to have a look at the Arabs in the deserts, as they are always swathed in cloth. Even their camels wear masks Lol.
