A squirrel’s attack on prayer flags

Creatures in our forest are readying for winter right now.  This squirrel, one of our long-time neighbours, was out collecting warm material to line her home with when she found one of our strings of Buddhist Lung ta prayer flags (Tibetan:རླུང་རྟ་; Mandarin Chinese:風馬 – Feng ma; meaning “Wind horse”).  I found her while she was well into separating one of the flags.  I really can’t take much issue with this resourceful little creature so I think we will have to buy some more flags to replace these.

  4. They also appreciate yarn! It should have a cozy winter now, out lots of nuts. They really like hazelnuts and almonds. Peanuts aren’t good for them. Wonderful photos!
