We all know what a brutal winter it was.  But for the majority of us, we had safe, cozy, warm houses we could retreat to and stay out of the elements.  Now that spring is in full swing, everyone...and I mean EVERYONE wants to be outside and enjoy the beautiful weather.  This includes the animals that were outside and braved the winter elements.

When I first saw this guy hanging out in the tree in our front yard, I wondered if he was even alive.  Upon further investigation, he was just kicking back and soaking in the excellent weather. He hung around for about 30 minutes.  Then, I would guess, it was off to eat nuts!
