Woodland Creatures Eat

Meet Stan.

This weekend, my intrepid photography instructor and I went to the park to play with shutter speeds. That is where we met Stan.

Stan loves to eat.

He also enjoys exercise. He reminds me of Hammy, the hyperactive squirrel in Over The Hedge.

I think the character of Hammy was based on Stan, to be quite honest.

Stan is also pretty possessive over his food. When George stops in for dinner …

… Stan chases him away.

But he doesn’t mind when Missy visits. You the man, Stan!

Meet Chip!

And Thomas (Thomas is the boy with the hand).

Thomas, his sister, and his dad were in the park to feed the birds. See? That’s Chip eating a seed.

Well, actually, he is just grabbing the seed. He is about to eat it on a branch of that tree that Stan was climbing earlier.

You know, I think I have to add woodland creatures to that list of things I’ll miss about Fall.

Stan and Chip and I might just have a date this weekend.

How do you enjoy the outdoors?

I love the photos of Stan. When I was in graduate school in Pittsburgh, I used to frequently meet up with a little squirrel I called Sam. So funny to see others occasionally name the wildlife too.
