Red Squirrel vs. Red Apple

Taken through the kitchen window with the wrong lens (of course!).
Look closely. Do you see what I saw, just moments ago? The little squirrel, Mr. Red, has been busy hoarding for weeks now. He was traveling over a nearby tree branch with a large, red apple in his mouth… well, that is till he dropped it! Research tells me that Red and Red would each weigh in at about half a pound. How's that for carrying one's own weight? 

For the record, I now see that the fruit is gone from where it dropped on the ground. You may draw your own conclusions, but no worries…

Apples, whether fallen from trees or hunters' lure bins, are in abundance, now. The little guy shall dine well.
