In Broad Daylight......

and to my dismay.... right there in the mid morning
beside the porch in the snow was a skunk.

A few days before I had thrown out some food and it was
covered with snow..

apparently he could smell it and was digging down deep
to get a bite of whatever it was

I was sitting up on the counter with the window up and
snapping pictures.. He didn't even notice me.. So I
threw out some jalapeno cheetos which just happened to
be on the counter beside me. . . ahhh not that I was eating
them or anything

He made a beeline for one and sniffed it.. I was holding my
breath.. they are quite spicy and hot

not to my skunk friend. He gobbled one right up

Holding it in his pink little hand and chomping away

I look up to see a squirrel resting on a snow covered branch

One eye peeked at me as I watched Mr. Skunk.

More to come in the backyard... stay tuned..

To God be The Glory ~~ Great Things He Hath Done

That skunk is one bold creature - eating below your snapping camera ;-)
Your yard really is full of critters - those two opossums just cracked me up on that tall feeder - it's a tough winter out there and easy food is a real plus for these guys. You'll be the neighborhood favorite!
