The little sucker just kept packing in more and more stuffing until his mouth was so full he couldn't add anymore. I think he finally saw me because I was laughing so hard I couldn't keep quiet. I've decided that next year, I'm just going to put a tomato cage at the base of that tree and buy a bag of cotton fiber fill to put in it. Then the squirrels can have all the stuffing they need for their nest and keep toasty warm in the winter. They really do live the good life in my backyard!
I also took a couple of neat pictures of the moon not too long after the squirrel shenanigans and thought I'd post them, too. The second one is pretty good for a basic zoom lens and no tripod.
