Thanks so much! And I have fun photographing them -- the little critters provide lots of entertainment for me as well! :) (And I learn a lot in the process, both about photography and about squirrels.)

Haha, unsere haben auch immer als erstes die Walnüsse geholt und vergraben. Nur wenn sie gleich etwas fressen wollten, haben sie die Haselnüsse genommen - oder wenn keine Walnüsse mehr da waren. :D
Bei euch kann man noch im Gras liegen?

Well, admittedly the grass was somewhat damp. But hey, sometimes lying in damp grass is just what you have to do to get the photo! No snow here though (although frozen ground or snowy ground might actually be easier to lie down in). :)

Most (but not all) of the squirrels here prefer hazelnuts over walnuts, if both are in the shell. Some of them will eat brazil nuts, but some won't, and they all seem to prefer either hazelnuts or walnuts to brazil nuts. I don't usually feed them peanuts because then they make a mess with the shells. Each squirrel does seem to have its own individual preferences among nuts though.

Letztens war ich auch von oben bis unten schmutzig, weil mir ein Hörnchen mit lehmigen Pfoten über Hose und Jacke geklettert ist! Wie du schon sagst, so etwas muss man in Kauf nehmen, wenn man nette Fotos machen will! :D
Ah, brazil nuts sind Paranüsse. Ich verstehe, dass die Hörnchen die nicht mögen, ich mag sie auch nicht!  :laughing:

I was just thinking that you had to be lying in the grass to get this!  And indeed you are!  Well done!  Isn't it funny....he's healthy looking and yet he MUST have the BIG one! LOL!  Gotta love these guys!  Terrific shot!!!!

Yeah, actually most of the squirrels in my yard seem to prefer hazelnuts to walnuts, so this one was being somewhat original. Some of the squirrels here are okay with Brazil nuts too, but others will completely ignore Brazil nuts. Probably if they were starving they'd all eat just about any kind of nut, but they do seem to have their preferences!

Thanks! I think this is one of the photos I took lying in the grass today. "Here, little squirrels -- here are some nuts! Don't mind the guy lying in the grass next to them." :)
