One + ?

For about a month I've seen one adult squirrel in the garden. One! But now I know there have been two, because 1 + 0 do not make babies. First there was the rustle of leaves and then the scramble, totally shaded part of the garden, two kids playing, not ground-worthy yet, agile in the branches. Fun and funny. Monkey-antics.

The camera was set at ISO 2000 and still I could not freeze the frenzy. As they whipped around the branches I thought of the story of "Little Black Sambo". That sure dates me. These babes are great at flying from branch to branch. Circus squirrels of West End Avenue. Adults probably arrived here from Riverside Park.
