Twins...I'll scratch your back if you will scratch mine!

We feed lots of squirrels and birds in our yard and after all summer, this is the first time I was able to catch these two together long enough to get them in action. We had a pair of young squirrels who visited with their mother to our feeder this summer and then we did not see them again for some time, at least not to be able to tell that it was them as individuals. Just before the snow that we got a few days ago, we happen to spot them in the tree near our deck. I am not sure if they were our twins but they spent an hour hanging out in the tree together. Hugs, back scratching and grooming were on their early evening agenda. It was fun watching their silly antics and they just seemed to be enjoying each others company!

These were taken with my little aim and shoot that I had near as I did not want to move to find another camera so I apologize that the photos are not the best but hopefully you enjoy seeing the "cuties" as much as we did.
