  • Dorothy April 18, 2011 at 10:22 am

    Squirrels come to my front door daily for their supply of peanuts for the day and I have been observing them for years and watched their quirky ways. They courageously jump from limb to limb , veraciously try to get to my bird seed , the grays chase the black visitors but never have I seen # 9

    # 2 – looks so sweet smelling the flowers

  • Bruce Wasem April 18, 2011 at 10:24 am

    How come these guys look so cute, and yet we keep trying to prevent them from eating the seed? But when times are tough you’ve got to have an understanding friend, so I have to vote for #9.

  • Denise April 18, 2011 at 10:25 am

    I think 7 is SUPER cute. I love squirrels!!! 7 gets my vote.

  • David April 18, 2011 at 10:35 am

    #12. The facial expression of that squirrel evokes a great Robert DiNero line….”You talkin’ to me?”
    These photos are all so good. Hard to single out only one as the best.
    I was just watching two squirrels on the deck opening pistachios we couldn’t pry open. They made short work of them.

  • maryann April 18, 2011 at 10:43 am

    I vote for #9, although they are all excellent. This picture makes it obvious that our animal friends have feelings too, and enjoy interacting with each other.
    #5 would be a very close second—-I love the camaraderie these two pictures exhibit.

  • Gail April 18, 2011 at 10:44 am

    #6 All are good, but I kept returning to this one. Looks like a “professional” portrait!

  • Jill Leonard April 18, 2011 at 10:49 am

  • Barbara April 18, 2011 at 10:53 am

    They are all cute and as others before me have stated…all winners!!… Hard to choose just one, but that is the one I choose…#1… looks lkike he is checking out to see who is watching him as he readys himself for the bird seed!!!

  • Claudia Beierle April 18, 2011 at 10:54 am

    All of the photos are great, but I choose #5.

  • Barbara April 18, 2011 at 10:54 am

    #5 Shows how inquisitive squirrels are — bet he finds a way to get inside the house full of seeds.

  • Shirley Grey April 18, 2011 at 10:54 am

    Number 6
    they were all great though.

  • Marianne Wood April 18, 2011 at 10:55 am

  • Colleen April 18, 2011 at 10:57 am

    #2 it is. But wow – it was hard to choose! Everyone captured a great moment, they all made me smile. But, #2 had great light in the shot and a lovely depth of field – a well photographed shot. I also appreciate the message that after all the squirreling that squirrels do, this one had time to stop and smell (or eat?) the flowers – it’s a nice reminder – Happy Spring!

  • Liz Blakeley April 18, 2011 at 10:57 am

    They’re all great but I vote for # 6

    I love the two babies peeking out of their nest in #6. All of the photos are precious.

    #7 …SO hard to choose, they’re all so precious — but I do love watching squirrels snooze on the deck rail!

    12

  • Cathy April 18, 2011 at 11:05 am

    I chose #9 because it’s just too precious. What are the chances of catching that in a photo??? LOL

  • Georgia April 18, 2011 at 11:06 am

    #9 is just the cutest
    #11 would be my second choice
    We just love watching the antics of our backyard squirrels.

  • Gail April 18, 2011 at 11:08 am

    Have you had enough to eat? Plus it would have been a very hard
    shot to catch.Qudos to the photographer!!!

  • helen Phillips April 18, 2011 at 11:13 am

    # 9 is my favorite, just too cute.

    We have crazy squirrels in our back yard that have done some pretty amazing things. This photo #6 reminds me of the little characters and how close they like to cuddle.

  • Pat April 18, 2011 at 11:23 am

    This is hard since they’re all wonderful, but my vote goes to #1 because he’s caught in the act; yet, he “owns” that feeder. Number 2 is a close second.

  • gail April 18, 2011 at 11:24 am

    2

  • Rosemary April 18, 2011 at 11:25 am

    Crazy little critters, so comical but I have to go with #9. Have never seen them strike this kind of pose…well done!

  • Karen April 18, 2011 at 11:29 am

    #10 is my choice because of the detail and sharpness of the photo.

  • Caroline Macpherson April 18, 2011 at 11:29 am

    # 11, natural and clear. Love the composition and colors. Very natural, but cute too.

  • Debbei April 18, 2011 at 11:29 am

    #2 Everyone should stop and smell the……….daisy’s.

  • Jimmy Bolton April 18, 2011 at 11:29 am

    It isn’t even a contest………………….It’s 9 all the way.

  • c-j April 18, 2011 at 11:29 am

  • Roni Williams April 18, 2011 at 11:32 am

    No. 9 is the cutest!!

  • mims April 18, 2011 at 11:32 am

    #7! Takin a nap….

    #7! just pooped…..

  • Carole April 18, 2011 at 11:34 am

    #6 is my choice…reminds me of my nutty BFF when we are together!

  • Felicia April 18, 2011 at 11:35 am

    I love them all but #1 gets my vote.

  • Grammi April 18, 2011 at 11:36 am

    #9

  • Debra April 18, 2011 at 11:39 am

    #1 is my favorite but they are all good!

  • phyllis a thomas April 18, 2011 at 11:41 am

    # 6 This was hard to catch. Had to climb a tree!

  • Jim Coulton April 18, 2011 at 11:42 am

    #4 It’s cool that the squirrel is cracking his own nut! Are they getting THAT lazy?

  • Laura April 18, 2011 at 11:42 am

    #12

  • Julia April 18, 2011 at 11:42 am

    They are all excellent, but number 12 is the best!

  • Stephany April 18, 2011 at 11:44 am

    I vote for #2- You’ll notice how many petals are missing (eaten) from those flowers in the field. Every squirrel in my neighborhood came to my yard this Spring and devoured all the blossoms from my Star Magnolia trees. Instead of hundreds and hundreds of blooms, I was left with about 20 flowers in each tree. It was like watching a squirrel insane asylum, nothing I could do but watch and give up any hope for the once-a-year, beautiful show and lovely scent the trees usually provide. This photo is definitely the one I can relate to, and it has a light, pretty feeling about it too!

  • Jackie April 18, 2011 at 11:45 am

    # 6. So hard to get that photo.

  • RebeccaJ April 18, 2011 at 11:46 am

    #9..”do you want to know a secret?”

  • Claudia April 18, 2011 at 11:46 am

    thy’re all great hard to pick the best but #5 is my fav, thanks for the entertainment !

  • Claudia April 18, 2011 at 11:47 am

  • Joan Monroe April 18, 2011 at 11:49 am

    They are all so precious. I love #9 the most.

  • Randy April 18, 2011 at 11:50 am

    #12 for sure……he has the cutest little inquisitive expression on his face, “Are you looking at me?”

  • Joan April 18, 2011 at 11:50 am

    Hard to pick just one. #9 is our pick although #5 was a close second.

  • Jean April 18, 2011 at 11:51 am

    They are all great, but I vote for #2.

  • Jean April 18, 2011 at 11:54 am

    #2 Absolutely adorable! Love everything about this picture! This sweet moment captured in a photo with the squirrel and the daisies is just so precious.

  • Karen Reynolds April 18, 2011 at 11:55 am

    I loved #9 she saying, don’t worry I’ll kiss your bo bo

  • BC April 18, 2011 at 11:55 am

  • Jennifer April 18, 2011 at 11:56 am

    I like #1.

  • Kathy April 18, 2011 at 11:57 am

    All were terrific, but I love #9 the most.

  • Laura April 18, 2011 at 11:58 am

    Love them all and very hard to choose, but I think I’m going with #9.. how adorable they all are!!! Congratulations to All – great shots!

  • Joan April 18, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    #9 is the winner.
    They are all great shots, but #9 is the most unsual.

  • linda April 18, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    all so cute. i’ll go with 12

  • Tammy April 18, 2011 at 12:04 pm

  • Janis Babcock April 18, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    #2 and #9

  • Sharon April 18, 2011 at 12:08 pm

    I vote for #1 he acts just like the squirrels in my yard love it

  • Beverley April 18, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    #12 is just so funny.

  • Marianne Hites April 18, 2011 at 12:10 pm

    Definitely no 2, looks so innocent….but we all really know the truth!

  • Lois April 18, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    Hard to pick just one…..I think #6, they are just too cute!!!!

  • Norma April 18, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    #2
    They all are fantastic pictures…it was very hard to choose just one. I think this one is a great visual of God’s magnificent creation!

  • Maria T. April 18, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    Number 13.

  • Pat April 18, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    Gotta go with number 6.

  • Amy Saunders April 18, 2011 at 12:15 pm

    #12!!

  • Norma April 18, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    #2
    These are all fantastic pictures…it was very hard to choose just one. I think #2 depicts not only a very cute squirrel, but also God’s magnificent creation!

  • Judith Chapman April 18, 2011 at 12:17 pm

    Love #13! Squirrels love to dig in the dirt and the flowers and this picture captures the moment!

  • Janis April 18, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    SO hard to choose! But, I’ll go with #2.

  • smurphy April 18, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    Hard tochoose but I’ll vote for # 12

  • Brenda April 18, 2011 at 12:24 pm

    They are all wonderful. I’m voting for #6. Two adorable babies looking out at the world, getting ready for adventures. They look just like two we raised one year.

  • Donna April 18, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    #4 all the way

  • LYN April 18, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    number 6.

  • Bonnie April 18, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    #9

  • susan April 18, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    I vote for #5 – the peeping tom!

  • Tania Lawson April 18, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    # 9 is my favorite. It’s spring – love is in the air.

  • Helen M. Burke April 18, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    I have to vote for #4, just because I believe that a squirrel would figure this out. This may have been staged but it really looks real.

  • Joe April 18, 2011 at 12:39 pm

    #12..reminds me of the squirrel/s that run through my trees,,,

  • Bea April 18, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    Wow, TOUGH choices, but I have to go with #9 for unusual content!

  • DONNA April 18, 2011 at 12:42 pm

    I PICK # 6, THEY ARE ADORABLE,LOOKS LIKE THEY ARE BABIES

  • LILLY April 18, 2011 at 12:43 pm

    2

  • Debro April 18, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    I was torn betwen #12 and #9 …
    However, as another commentor pointed out … how often would you have caught that tenderness between squirrls?
    My vote is #9 ..
    Have to add … the are ALL good!
    Keep on Snappin’ those Pics!

  • Rhonda April 18, 2011 at 12:44 pm

    My vote #12 Just to cute, Who’ looking at me Baby!

  • Francine Leeson April 18, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    #9 – Just too darn adorable!

  • Shirley Wallace April 18, 2011 at 12:46 pm

    Love # 6. This is so adorable.

  • Lake April 18, 2011 at 12:47 pm

    #1 because 1 and 5 are the only ones that depict a squirrel doing something that a birder wouldn’t like. The other pics are adorable, however! I actually wish I had squirrels here…but alas, there are few tall trees in this subdivision. A juvenile has been around to my feeders this spring, however, and I leave peanuts for him.

  • Mary Ann April 18, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    I LOVE all of them, but I keep coming back to #12. You can just about read his mind!

  • Kathy B. April 18, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    I love them all, but #2 is a good reminder that we should all slow down…and stop and smell the flowers.

  • Kitty Clasing April 18, 2011 at 12:52 pm

    Number 12 is my choice. Mr. Squirrel seems quite at ease and comfortable.

  • Sue April 18, 2011 at 12:53 pm

    #6 is my pick :)) so sweet!

  • Jan A Pollitt April 18, 2011 at 12:55 pm

    I have to vote for #10. The squirrel looks like he or she was caught stealing the flower and I can hear the excuse “But there are no more peanuts, what else can I do?”

  • Shirley Grizzle April 18, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    #9 is my favorite–I can just imagine him saying “did you get something in your eye?’.

  • Peter M April 18, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    #6 – So Cute! Looks like these babies are coming out of a wood duck box.

  • Marcia S April 18, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    I love them all, but #13 is the cutest!

  • Paula April 18, 2011 at 12:56 pm

    All of these pictures are too adorable. So hard to chose just one, but I’ll go with #12.

  • Dick B April 18, 2011 at 12:59 pm

    They are ALL GREAT! But I have to go with #9. Wish I could vote for all of them – I think squirrels are the greatest creatures to watch.

  • Carla April 18, 2011 at 1:02 pm

    #9 is adorable. All great photos and a very difficult decision to make.

  • Helen H April 18, 2011 at 1:04 pm

    They are all just beautiful – but I have to vote for #6, it is so cute!

  • Becky B April 18, 2011 at 1:05 pm

    My favorite is #5 Peeping Squirrel!

  • jerry Brincks April 18, 2011 at 1:06 pm

    #9 is my choice. IT REMINDS ME OF MY GRANDKIDS.

  • Vickie H. April 18, 2011 at 1:08 pm

    #6, so sweet! But, they are all great pix!!!

  • Sandra T. Allmond April 18, 2011 at 1:12 pm

    #12 is my choice! “Just hanging around–looking for some action!”

  • Sally April 18, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    #9 May all creatures on Earth have love.

  • Linda P April 18, 2011 at 1:17 pm

    I like # 1

  • Joyce G April 18, 2011 at 1:18 pm

    #13 gets my vote

  • Jordi April 18, 2011 at 1:24 pm

    #2! Come on, wake up and smell the daisies 🙂

  • Laurie April 18, 2011 at 1:25 pm

    #2 (#6 was my close second)

  • Sandi April 18, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    I simply cant decide…that are all great! Ok, I will go with 6

  • Noonie April 18, 2011 at 1:26 pm

    I love one and 12. All of them are CUTE. I love watching squirrels jumping from tree to tree on their “highways”.
    Guess I will chose 12.

  • Dolores April 18, 2011 at 1:28 pm

    I vote for #2. There is nothing like a little critter out to smell the daisies.

  • Nanette April 18, 2011 at 1:31 pm

    So sweet! Since squirrels are often like naughty children, sweetest when asleep, I have to go with #7!

  • Dottie April 18, 2011 at 1:34 pm

    I vote for #13 it is just too cute

  • Terry Brown April 18, 2011 at 1:35 pm

    Nember 6

  • kim April 18, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    #12 is cute

  • Marian April 18, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    #1 Raider of the Ark……my squirrels would do this and since this is a BIRD loving company……and sell many squirrel baffles…..I vote for the engineer of the squirrel pack!

  • Vanda April 18, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    I vote for #7… love it… basking in the sun… probably with a full belly… 🙂

  • Rachel H April 18, 2011 at 1:39 pm

    #6!!!

  • scott April 18, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    all are good but i have to go with #12

  • Louise LeBeau April 18, 2011 at 1:45 pm

    # 9

  • Miriam April 18, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    #9 for sure! They look like great friends helping each other out.

  • Sharon Piazza April 18, 2011 at 1:51 pm

    No. 1 is the best for an ad, BUT No. 5 is my favorite – it is so much the typical naughty, nosy squirrel !

  • JERRY iNGRAHAM April 18, 2011 at 1:52 pm

    He is wondering if someone is looking for him.

  • Diane April 18, 2011 at 1:55 pm

    It was hard to pick just one, but I’ll go with #12.

  • Lisa April 18, 2011 at 1:58 pm

    #2 is awesome! Perfect for the Easter season.

  • Arlene Cegelis April 18, 2011 at 1:59 pm

  • Marcia D. April 18, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    #13

  • Liz April 18, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    I vote for #6
    and I love #6 #9 and #10 they are beautiful too.

  • Jeanne Louviere April 18, 2011 at 2:02 pm

    #9
    It’s difficult to get shots of squirrels doing something “different,” so I think this capture is special.

  • Amy April 18, 2011 at 2:03 pm

    # 6…two for the price of one!

  • sue April 18, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    #5- up to no good!

  • Frank April 18, 2011 at 2:04 pm

    I vote for #3 because the squirrel is viewed in his natural habitat and not someone’s bird feeder.

  • Beverly Dantos April 18, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    They are all great, but #9 is my favorite

  • Martha April 18, 2011 at 2:07 pm

    #6 because they just look like perfect pals!

  • michelle p April 18, 2011 at 2:11 pm

    Love #9…so cute!

  • Kay April 18, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    #12 Looks just like the one that was watching me put out bird seed yesterday. Looked like she was saying thank you!!!

  • Heidi April 18, 2011 at 2:22 pm

    Using a nutcracker? LOL! #4 it is.

  • Bev April 18, 2011 at 2:24 pm

    They are all soooooooo cute!!!! I couldn’t pick just one so we did a family vote and finally decided on # 6. It was a very hard task to pick just one!

  • Pam Lewis April 18, 2011 at 2:28 pm

    6

  • Sue Pelinski April 18, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    Squirrel #8 is my choice-I live in a suburb of Chicago, and was wondering if this was my squirrel that I was feeding until January when we had a terrible storm and I never saw him again-I recognize him by the scar over his nose and #8 has the same scar??? I miss him so much-he would come right up to my glass door and look for me.

  • Dave April 18, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    Ok, has anyone noticed that in #4 he is working the handle of a nutcracker and there is a peanut in the mouth of the nutcracker? Someone said it’s hard to get a shot of squirrels doing something different…well how about that??

  • Cindy April 18, 2011 at 2:32 pm

    I vote for #9.

  • Jane April 18, 2011 at 2:34 pm

    I love 6, makes me laugh!

  • Juliet P April 18, 2011 at 2:39 pm

    I’ll go with number 12.

  • Lynn April 18, 2011 at 2:41 pm

    It is hard to choose but I like #1 – looks like he is going to swing the feeder.

  • Ele April 18, 2011 at 2:42 pm

    # 12. If I could I would vote for them all!

  • PAUL & SADIE April 18, 2011 at 2:46 pm

    NO. 12 SEEMS TO BE Asking “who are you?

  • Pamela April 18, 2011 at 2:47 pm

  • David Frushour April 18, 2011 at 2:51 pm

    It has to be #1. “I own this feeder” said sentry squirrel

  • K Drennon April 18, 2011 at 2:52 pm

    #9…..How sweet.

  • Carrol April 18, 2011 at 2:55 pm

    Would have to be #4 for his ingenuity!

  • Diane April 18, 2011 at 2:57 pm

    # 6 is my pick.
    They are all adorable.

  • mntboy April 18, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    #2 Beautiful!

  • Barbara Mathiews April 18, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    It really is hard to pick one…so I am going to pick number 2 so cute…but, all of them are so cute..love all squirrels..feed mine everyday.

  • V. Kay Cantrill April 18, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I love #9. The one at first looks like one might being whispering out a plot but then you see that it’s the ones eye. So I’m thinking the one is saying “LOOK WE NEED TO SEE EYE TO EYE ON THIS!”

  • Anita April 18, 2011 at 3:00 pm

    I vote for #6 – they are the cutest little fellows. If I could select a 2nd choice it would be #10 – such a lovely little squirrel! It was really very difficult to choose one over the other because I love them both.

  • judy April 18, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    #7 gotta love it

  • Walt S. April 18, 2011 at 3:03 pm

    I like number 6.

    I think # 10 is my pick, but how can you pick wth so many good pics.

  • Pat April 18, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    No. 12..how often do you see a squirrel hanging like that..haven’t in my back yard..

  • elaine April 18, 2011 at 3:09 pm

    #4 was voted the best by my daughter Kailey because he’s got a snowmen cracking his nuts!

  • Karen Ruzinsky April 18, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    #12.

  • Elke April 18, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    #10 Great close up and he looks like such a baby squirrel.

  • Eddie April 18, 2011 at 3:15 pm

    #4 because of the technical difficulty of setting up this shot.

  • P Price April 18, 2011 at 3:16 pm

    P e s t s !!

  • Betty April 18, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    It is hard to choose, but I vote for #6.

  • Emma M April 18, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    #11 Love the way he’s stretched to twice his size 🙂

  • Joannie April 18, 2011 at 3:19 pm

    #12 – just cracks me up

  • Virginia April 18, 2011 at 3:21 pm

    #5! All were great – but I liked this one the best.. squirrels are nosy!

  • Marie April 18, 2011 at 3:23 pm

    #9 /I always go for the ‘good buddy’ pictures

  • Vanessa April 18, 2011 at 3:24 pm

    4 or 12 , 4 of 12…uggg..
    I’ll go with #12!
    Seems like he’s saying, “What ya looking at?” “Got nuts?”
    Love it.

  • Barb Eaton April 18, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    #12 this guy has the same nasty look as mine give me when I shoo them off my bird feeders…as if to say “who do you think you are chasing me out of here” LOL Bratty little creatures!!

    I’ll vote for #13 although they are all good and as cute as can be.

  • Shoshana April 18, 2011 at 3:28 pm

    #13 is too cute for words! makes me want to get a green thumb and start raising squirrels too.

  • Julia April 18, 2011 at 3:29 pm

  • MARY April 18, 2011 at 3:30 pm

    They’re all wonderful — but #9 captures an encounter I’ve never seen before, and so captures my vote.

  • Pam April 18, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    Loved #4 – getting ready to crack his own nut. Great shot. Second choice is #12, I have seen him at my house 🙂

  • rita April 18, 2011 at 3:34 pm

  • FloAnn April 18, 2011 at 3:41 pm

    #12.
    She greets me every morning just like the picture. Several months ago
    she was being chased by a fox near my Camphor tree; she managed
    to reach the tree trunk but fox had her by the tail. I raced outside and
    startled the fox who let go of the squirrel, but half the tail fell to the
    ground. Since the that episode the female squirrel has been most
    kind to me every morning.

  • Anita April 18, 2011 at 3:42 pm

    I vote for #8 -they all look so innocent, but after losing several feeders (dispite baffles), and part of our picture window frame, to these guys this winter, I know that looks really are deceiving!

    #4 — Funny stuff. Maybe the next squirrel photo contest should be photos TAKEN by squirrels. They would probably photograph people chasing them away from the bird feeders and pulling up all of the sprouting peanuts that they plant in our gardens. We have two squirrels here that will walk inside the house to ask for nuts. I LOVE THEM. Thanks to all who shared your great squirrel photos.

    I vote for #2. How cute is that seeing a squirrel taking time to smell the flowers? I love it. May we all learn a lesson from this smart little critter.

  • Kris April 20, 2011 at 9:41 pm

    I vote for #9, but all of them are really good!

  • Trish April 20, 2011 at 10:34 pm

    It is so hard to pick only one. They are all great, but # 6 has my vote. Luv to watch our squirrels.

  • Fred April 20, 2011 at 11:13 pm

    #9… way cool

  • Carla April 21, 2011 at 12:02 am

    Love them ALL. But I vote for #1. He has this “who are you looking at attitude”

  • ROBERTA April 21, 2011 at 1:43 am

    Number 9 is so sweet, a squirrel hug. I also like number 14!! He is just hangin’ around.

  • ROBERTA April 21, 2011 at 1:45 am

    Oops. I meant number 12, not 14.

  • Carol April 21, 2011 at 3:02 am

    Hard to choose just one but my vote goes to #9, even though some of the others are prettier. I love the feeling of that one.

    I like #9. They are totally un-aware of the photographer, and interacting with each other. Congratulations to the photographer for patience and sharp eyes!

  • Pam April 21, 2011 at 8:13 am

    Loved them all especially 2, 6, and 14. Very tough for me to decide. I’ll pick #2. At least it’s not raiding a birdfeeder! Thanks for having the contest.

  • Richard Kent April 21, 2011 at 9:07 am

    vote #12

  • Mel April 21, 2011 at 9:13 am

    All great pics……. I’ll go with Number # 10

  • Nancy Humphreys April 21, 2011 at 9:43 am

    Our favorite is #1. Great pics all around!

  • Dona April 21, 2011 at 9:45 am

    #10 & #12. #10 is so very pretty and #12 exudes real attitude.

  • Bill April 21, 2011 at 9:48 am

    #2 # 5

  • Irene April 21, 2011 at 10:20 am

    It’s a tough choice because they’re all so adorable but I’ll pick no. 2 with no. 6 as a very close runner up!

  • DeeDee Piloian April 21, 2011 at 10:40 am

    #9 Really sweet.

  • Marti Straub April 21, 2011 at 10:48 am

  • Carolyn April 21, 2011 at 11:14 am

    #10 gets my vote. What a keen eye the photographer has…the quality of the photo is remarkable. Are these professionals or amateurs?

  • Jackie April 21, 2011 at 11:15 am

    #10 is a 10 in my book!

  • Andy April 21, 2011 at 11:56 am

  • Dottie April 21, 2011 at 12:32 pm

    #9 – If it’s difficult to catch one squirrel doing something cute, think about a single second when two are being cute! But #7 was a close second.

  • Jkellz April 21, 2011 at 12:48 pm

    #10 is the best…IMHO

  • May April 21, 2011 at 12:50 pm

    #10 is just adorable I would be willing to take him in as a boarder.

  • Ellen McCourt April 21, 2011 at 1:36 pm

    Are you blind? Look at number 10, what an expression on that cuties face, Id like to put a leash on him. A little stuffed animal number 10 it is!!!

  • Shirley Achins April 21, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    # 9 looks as if they are watching over one another. This is my pick of the bunch

  • sarah April 21, 2011 at 2:20 pm

    I like #1

  • Viola Lassen April 21, 2011 at 2:29 pm

    #9 That is a hard pic to get. All the entries are good and soooo cute. My vote is #9

  • Sue Cahee April 21, 2011 at 3:12 pm

    I love them all. My vote is #12

  • Jeremy April 21, 2011 at 3:49 pm

    #7 Never see them stop, much less sleep LOL

  • judy April 21, 2011 at 4:17 pm

    i vote for #13

  • Jessica April 21, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    #7

  • Deborah April 21, 2011 at 5:23 pm

    By far, #10 is the best….great picture 😉

  • AJ April 21, 2011 at 5:56 pm

    I vote for 9.
    I also like 1 and 12, but like so many other of the entries (all good) there’s nothing really extraordinary about them compared to squirrel pictures I’ve seen before. To catch a cute, unusual, in focus moment of one grooming another, before both scamper off is a gem of wildlife photography.

  • Sarah B April 21, 2011 at 6:09 pm

    My choice, very difficult is #9

  • mjones April 21, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    #12 — great composition!

  • Doris April 22, 2011 at 5:17 am

    They are all great, but #9 is my favorite. It shows that animals need a hug & kiss now and then.

  • Kim Goodwin April 22, 2011 at 11:52 am

    I vote for #12. I love his eyes!

  • Pat April 22, 2011 at 12:41 pm

    #6 There are lots of squirrels around here, but I never see the little ones. Great shot.

  • Lin April 22, 2011 at 1:10 pm

    #1 if pure squirrel – YEAH I’M ON TOP OF THE FEEDER – GOT A PROBLEM WITH THAT?

  • david chetaitis April 22, 2011 at 2:35 pm

    # 10 wins my heart and my vote.

  • Ann April 22, 2011 at 7:23 pm

    I love #6! It is my favorite. 🙂

  • John April 22, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    It was hard to choose, but I vote for # 4 because it shows a squirrel’s problem-solving skills to get the nut.
