Lesson Learned

Once upon a time there was a lady who loved photography...now this lady loved to stage scenes that she thought would photograph well.  One particular scenario she decided to arrange for a Fall image, a large pumpkin posed on an old antique chair, was, in her mind, thought to be the perfect Fall still life.  However, before the lady photographed this "near perfect" Fall scene this happened....


Now she wondered what happened to her "perfect Fall scene".....the perfect pumpkin had been plundered, pilfered and plucked beyond recognition.  Looking around she spied who she imagined might be the pincher.....


Giving up on her dreams of the Fall Photograph, she aimed her camera at another subject, the "almost, without a doubt" pillager of the pumpkin.  Trying desperately to catch him in the act, she followed his every move.....


She could almost see his tongue ready to feast upon the remains of the "perfect Fall pumpkin"

 
But do you think that suspected pirate of pumpkins would go near the scene of the crime??  No way, he just sat and enjoyed the fruits of his earlier piracy without a care in the world.


Scampering back up the tree with an "oh so innocent" look on his face, without even coming close to the pumpkin, the lady decided the "stake-out" to catch the thief burglarizing in action was over. She would now have to find another perfect Fall scene to capture on her camera devoid of the pumpkin.


Lesson learned....do not leave a perfect pumpkin on antique chair in the middle of the yard that is known to be inhabited by snitching squirrels that pillage and plunder...enough said.  For that I am grateful.

Until next time....

  4. Oh, my goodness gracious! I want to say, 'it could only happen to you', but I know better. Squirrels can be pesky, they decimated the pansies I put out front. He does have a sweet face ... or you just caught his 'good' side.
