This friendly squirrel is named Lady Squirrel.

She is very different than most squirrels. Generally the wild squirrels in the back yard are quite skittish. It’s pretty rare for one to even get very close to you when you are outside. However one day when I was taking my time, setting up my camera to take the Squirrel Darth Vader photo, she was wandering around, and became quite curious. Suddenly to my surprise, she jumped right up on me from behind and started gently climbing around.

She continued to do this on occasion, eventually she would come up to me when I was standing in the yard, and would jump right up for a snack. Sometimes if I wasn’t quick enough, she would climb all over, or even dig in my pockets to help herself to whatever nuts were in there.

Here is a funny video of our backyard squirrels.

This is something they often do. The squirrels will be just relaxing, wandering around the yard care free, then suddenly out of the blue just start rolling, flipping, running in zig zags, and jumping around for no apparent reason. Maybe they have a sudden intense itch they can’t quite scratch, or maybe they are just having some spontaneous fun. Either way, its pretty hard to catch on camera because its so unpredictable, and they usually just do it for a few seconds at a time. By the time you can grab the camera its usually too late. Nevertheless, I caught some of their crazy antics on video, and made this musical compilation. It starts out slow but ramps, up when the music kicks in, leading up to a hilarious finale.

If enough people like and share this video, I’ll start filming for a part 2 🙂
