I don’t mind getting up early in the morning if it is to see cue squirrels playing around in the backyard. I think they fancied all the leaves lying around. I really enjoyed using 5 mins in the morning watching them play, and of course trying to take pictures of them.
After a while our stray cat, which is a regular guest here, thought it was funny to watch the squirrel couple too. But the squirrels clearly disagreed to having a hungry cat watching them, and thought standing totally still on the fence would protect them before they decided it was safer to run away.
Gotta love mornings like this~!
