Its time to prepare for winter by gathering food, at least if you are a Squirrel. I have at least three Squirrels taking food in front of me and caching it for harder times. Mostly they don't even pause for as much as a hello, except if there's another Squirrel in which case they spiral around the nearest tree chattering away. Soon their ear tufts will develop further but they are still high in the cuteness stakes as my picture hopefully shows.
I am lucky to have them close to home where I can enjoy their antics.
