In Pursuit of Lunch

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
