Squirrel and nut

 2 squirrels are running to and fro through my garden to the neighbours wallnuttree.

Then they store the nuts in my garden and also in the wood nearby.

Today I caught one of them, (the darker one,) with a fresh picked nut. He peeled it quickly and took it to a safe spot a little higher to eat it. He rotated the nut quickly with his paws and scraped with his sharp teeth to crack it. I could clearly hear the scraping sound of his teeth on the nut.

Then he saw me watching with my camera, so that meant he fled to a more private spot.
