Festive Squirrel

Well, Forth of July celebrations are having an intriguing affect on animals in our backyard habitat.  Never again do we give tequilas to the squirrels.  This one thinks she’s Carmen Miranda.  Hope all of you in the US are having a great Independence day, and to visitors from other places — wish you could be here to enjoy our party!
