The funniest part of watching this play out was that, from so many vigorous dips into the pumpkin abyss, the squirrel's furry, little cheeks had gotten quite gummed up with orange goo. To get it off, she flattened herself on her belly in the grass (in an Army low-crawl), tilted her head sideways, and rubbed her cheeks along the grass as she went. Fastidious and opportunistic.
*Images taken through a glass door clouded with dog nose slime. The houndoons would like to be opportunistic and eat this squirrel and her mailwoman friend, but they keep getting stoppered by that pesky door!
