Weekly Photo Challenge: Indulge

This furry visitor LOVES suet! S/He indulges in the delicacy any and every chance possible. It is funny to watch the birds gather around, perched on nearby branches, watching and waiting for their chance at this food which was originally intended for my feathered friends. If this squirrel weren’t so cute, I’d be chasing him/her off. But we’ve become friends, so much so that when I open the window to chase him/her away, s/he will jump to the window ledge instead and try to come into the house. One day soon I hope to get a shot of the two of us staring at each other, nose-to-nose, through the window.

I know what this squirrel likes to indulge in! What about you? ย What is your favorite indulgence?

  1. Great picture! I love watching the squirrels. I have a small apartment in the suburbs of Washington D.C. (Fairfax, County VA) and I hang a squirrel-proof bird feeder. However, I love watching the squirrels too, so I always put a little something out for them such as peanuts. It is relaxing when I enjoy my morning coffee/tea.

    1. Thanks Jamie. We lived in Fairfax the last nine months we were in the area. Sweet. Thanks for stopping by. (I, too, plant myself in front of the window and watch the early morning wild life as I sip my firs cup of coffee each day!)

  2. Lovely shot! I love watching the squirrels too … they’re always up to something, so very busy all the time. That’s a fine furry friend you’ve got there ๐Ÿ™‚

  3. He is adorable but I couldn’t help but ask… what about the birds? Do they get their food back or is he a controlling hoarder? ๐Ÿ˜†
    Loved your photo Cecelia and hope your studies are going well. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. The squirrel is quite greedy. The birds have to wait till the squirrel has his fill, and usually there is not a lot left, but I don’t think any of the critters are going hungry.

      Glad you like the photo, and the studies are going well. Three weeks and this quarter is done! I soooooo looking forward to the break and a few weeks of normalcy before the studies start up again. Thank you so much for stopping by. I miss my blogging buddies. Hope all is well with you, too.


      1. Oh boy, I suspected so… Maybe he can get his own little holder? Anyway, take care and stop by sometime. I don’t see you on my blog anymore. ๐Ÿ™‚

        1. Sooooo sorry I haven’t stopped by. I’ve been buried in the books, and about the only blogging I’m doing right now is this one blog, the other two are on hiatus, and I have quit visiting my friends. ๐Ÿ˜ฆ BUT, two weeks left in the quarter and then I’ll be back to visiting, commenting, blogging, etc. . . . at least for three weeks until my next quarter begins! Thank you so much for continuing to stop by. I fully expected to lose EVERYONE this quarter, but some of you keep stopping by. THANK YOU! have a great week and I’ll see you in a few. ๐Ÿ™‚

  4. Perfect photo for the challenge as the squirrel looks determined to indulge in eating the whole suet cake. That sure is a beautiful, healthy looking squirrel. Love your entry Cecelia!

    1. Yes, the squirrels are enjoying the bird food! The birds sit on surrounding branches and just watch the action. They haven’t figured out that they could collectively “attack” and the squirrel would scamper away. Every once in a while, one of the birds will start loudly screeching and scolding but to no avail. Quite interesting to watch the dynamics of it all. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. The squirrel is indeed cute. I will probably have him take my food too. His cuteness is irresistible…beautiful picture with a fun and enjoyable vibe to it. Thank you.

    1. Thanks for stopping by, IT. Glad you like the squirrel. That cutie has kept me company all winter. It’s been great fun to photograph his/her antics. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thanks Jake. I’ve gotten quite attached to this critter. S/he will actually come up to the window and “chat” with me through the window pane now. He is a cutie! ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. they have been fun to watch and to interact with this winter. We will be moving this spring (to a house nearby) and I will miss them. Birds, too. Oh well, I will find critters in our new place, too. And I will share with you all. Thanks for stopping by, Jo. Two more weeks and my quarter is over and then I will have a three week break and will be able to visit y’all again. Have a great week, and I’ll see you in a few. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. That would be soooo cute! My granddaughter was here over the weekend, but the squirrels didn’t come around. I think she would have gotten a kick out of them.Thanks for stopping by, Doris. Two more weeks of classes and then I’ll get a break and will get back to visiting your and others’ blogs. ๐Ÿ™‚

  6. WELCOME! Thank you for subscribing to follow my blog. I hope you will be encouraged, inspired and enoy the pictures I post. I look forward to sharing posts and comments with yoi.


  7. what a great capture. have re-discovered a park near the office which is quite large and full of squirrels. they keep hoping that visitors will give them a treat so they are not at all shy. i know they can be a nuisance, but who can resist those button eyes?
    thanks for sharing.

    1. I agree–it is hard to resist those button eyes. The squirrels come regularly to my window sill and I’ve managed to make “pets” of them. They are so much fun to watch.

      Thanks for stopping by. ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. This little critter became a pet . . . almost. He stopped by my window daily to see if there was food, to peer in and see if I was around. I could get nose-to-nose with him with only a window pane separating us. He was quite a delight to have around. Now, with warmer weather, he has very little use for me as he has ample food in his natural habitat. Glad you enjoyed the photo. Thanks for stopping by.
