Thank you all for your generous comments. I was in no real danger so long as the acorns held out. He was much more interested in eating them than photographers. :) Sincerely appreciated, Dick:)

He is so handsome, but please keep him near you. We have too many pesky types as is. Enjoyed visiting with you.
