Our animal friends: squirrels

Came home to find this gal hanging upside down from a drooping sunflower, shelling the seeds and stuffing them into her face with impressive efficiency.

Since she manages to feed herself without cutting down the flowers, hasn't affected our own consumption, and amuses me, I haven't pestered her. I know it sets a bad precedent, but I imagine when the sunflower seeds run out she'll return to mooching off the neighbor who actually puts peanuts out for the squirrels. If not, we will have words then. And by words, I mean the garden hose.
