The back yard at my Mom's place in Floodwood Minnesota is pretty much a constant show. One of the stars of that show is "Casper", the pretty white squirrel above. He isn't an albino, but certainly not the average gray squirrel either. Whatever causes him to be white, it really bothers the other plain gray squirrels in the yard. He is different and must be vanquished!!!
Above sits one of the other participants in the daily battle for "King of the feeder". There are many like him of course so poor Casper has a pretty big challenge to face each day. Casper deals with it much the same way humans do, which is to say he finds someone lower on the food chain to pass the harassment to. Enter the rest of our cast, little red squirrels and chipmunks.
These poor little guys catch all the passed along abuse.
The last remaining characters in the cast of the Squirrel Drama Show, are the little flying squirrels who were unavailable to have their picture taken. They are a bit shy and show up just after dark each evening.
Of course there are other shows in the back yard as well with yet full casts of their own. The "Bird Drama" is especially entertaining!
Just thought I would leave you with a few parting shots of Casper since he is pretty much the star of the backyard show! Hope you enjoyed meeting the cast!
