A Sweet Little Grey Squirrel

 

 

This small probably female, Grey Squirrel was spotted at the golf cart parking lot in the lovely Paradise Park in The Villages, Florida on the shoreline of Paradise Lake.  This squirrel is likely a younger squirrel but the Grey Squirrels here in Florida do seem to be a little smaller than those seen in other states.

The squirrel was happily standing on the low fence post just soaking up the Sun and perhaps, waiting for a visitor to toss a peanut or some cereal to it.  The squirrels like the ibis here, have a knack for being champion beggars!  I do not feed the wildlife but plenty of folks do.  I did notice that a few minutes later, the same squirrel was munching on an acorn so all was well for it.  I do enjoy seeing these cuties!  Please click on the thumbnail image to see the slightly larger version of the picture.  Enjoy!
