He's a bold one. We were in the kitchen making dinner but when you have entertainment like this...the burners get turned off and you get the camera. He wasn't afraid that we were only 5 feet from him. Didn't budge when we opened the window to get clear shots. Here he's living on the edge. He doesn't know that that sunflower head isn't going to just fall off. We've had tons of rain and it could be rotted and ready to drop at any second but his soul purpose is to stuff his cheeks while he has the chance. He's a survivor. He's doing what he has to do.
Look at that tail!!! He was having a good hair day for sure. Deserves to be noticed.
Action shot. He's done this before. Big tree stump or a thin sunflower stem, it doesn't matter to him because he's the master of his domain!
