Cameron's Squirrels

Cameron would love a dog, but this is not possible in an apartment in Berlin. However, there are a family of squirrels that live in the trees around our place that Cameron declared as 'his pets' when he was about 4 years old, and they have remained with us ever since.

Cameron's room provides a tree-top level viewing platform, and in the days leading up to the first snowfall, the squirrels have been very active. Here are a few photos of the squirrels from Cameron's windows. They can sit so still then ZIP! they have exploded away at great speed. They were playing chase, gathering some of the branches for their nests, and eating the small pinecones.

We must have watched them for a good 20 minutes, but it was quite chilly with the windows open!!
