When....

 
When you're this little...
 
 
You only need a tiny bit of batting for your nest.

The Golden-mantled Ground Squirrels...

 
Lots of predators this time of year so...

 
these little guys are on alert.

 
Yes, I saw them, too...a Coyote and a Fox
within minutes of each other.
I was as shocked as you.

 
Two sets of eyes and ears...

 
When she holds this posture you can see how
how beautiful her markings are...
The "picket pin posture"....
allows them to see long distances and the posture
helps them to use their hearing ability better.

 
 Early settlers call them "picket pins" for this type of posture
 because from a distance they look like
 stakes that had been driven into the ground.

Well...

 
Appliquéing those berries took me forever. 
 Now to stitch all the stems and then embellish
  each berry with a specialty thread.
