Photos of birds, fish, flowers and miscellaneous things that catch my eye and instill a sense of wonder.

Fat and Sassy
California Ground Squirrel, Spermophilus beecheyi, juvenile. Here is one of Mrs. Squirrel's young charges eating a flower off of my ice plant. They don't seem to eat the leaves so I'm guessing that the flowers are a) a bit more tender; and, perhaps, b) a tad sweeter/better tasting. Hmmm...what do you call a baby squirrel anyhow? A pup? I kind of like squirrelette! Hahah.
