Young Squirrels Exploring

I’ve been watching for the past few days these two young Squirrels dart in and out of their “home” inside the Maple tree in our front yard. Today I had my camera ready.



There is a story here. Day after day I watched them come out of the hole and scamper around the tree not too far from security. Each day they went further up the tree, but never down onto the ground. Then today, I watched as their Mother took control and tried repeatedly to coax them to the ground. After many attempts she was finally successful, getting them to follow her off to look for food.  I have no idea how large the hole is, but it has to be quite large inside the tree to accommodate the Mother and two youngsters almost as large as she is. Nature is fun to watch, especially with a camera and telephoto lens.
