I always wondered what happened to my Camellias when I would come home and find them laying all over the ground. I always thought is was the wind. Well today I caught the culprit. Didn't know they liked to shred Camellias! Bad Squirrel!

Well captured! Sorry for the damage; squirrels are cute, but can do a lot of damage to plants.

Still nice color in these petals. Nice capture of the offending critter.

Beautiful contrast of colors, all good things must come to a end, but so much beauty is still to be seen here. Fantastic!

still, the litter does look beautiful!

They do look pretty on the gound. That's where they'll end up sooner or later anyway.

All those beautiful petals on the ground make a wonderful photo but I guess it's not great for a garden. Bad squirrels. :)

Here we have Possums that eat the rose buds & fruitbats that eat the fruit...

Petals are still beautiful, however. I caught one sitting on the fence eating (PaD in January). They have to eat too, you know.

Awful little thing! I can't believe he's eating the camellias too!

It's not bad enough they eat the bird seed, now they have to shred your flowers. Caught in the act!

Naughty little guy! He left a pretty pattern in the grass for you though!
