What’s Landing On My Head

As I mentioned in my last post, Looking Up, I spent a fair amount of time while wandering around the Fullerton Arboretum, looking up. This proved to be particularly true after I wandered off the path to better see what creature was scurrying about, and had something smallish land on my head. My attention was then immediately directed upwards at a large, fluffy palm tree. It took me some time to see a squirrel munching away at whatever type of nuts were growing on the palm. One of his discards is clearly what landed on my head. This gave me quite a chuckle as I’d never seen a squirrel up a palm tree. Naturally I wished I’d carried my heavy zoom lens along, but cropping in gives a pretty clear view of the culprit. By the way, the creature I went to investigate was another squirrel burying his finds in a nice hole he’d dug. I promised I wouldn’t disclose his secret hiding place. ~SueBee

      Haha! I’ll have to visit the Arboretum again and get his written permission. If he’s agreeable to that, I’ll be sure to post the secret location!

      Indeed! I realize it could have been something altogether different!

A Note From Abroad

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sailaway from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” ~ Mark Twain
