When you are low on the food chain you have to take care when you venture out to eat. The Round-tailed Ground Squirrel appears under the gate into our yard.
And carefully looks around to see if there is any danger nearby
You cannot be too cautious, there is always someone watching, somewhere
When the way seems clear, a quick run out into the open to the yummy quail block
Where a couple of mouthfuls are hurriedly munched and then cheeks filled with more goodies
Before running back into the shade, safe from the hunter in the skies
To enjoy a tasty meal
