Oh my goodness, what a wet squirrel. Stoney might need a brush and blow dry after the rain stops. The Grackle seems to be handling the rain much better.

Elephant's Child said...

The Grackles really needs a much prettier name to match that gorgeous plumage.
And yes, both of them do look very, very wet.
I hope it dries up for them (and you) soon.

Nancy J said...

Oh dear, I do hope Braveheart has a warm bed to snuggle into, bedraggled is almost too nice for him today. Cheers, Jean.

Karen said...

Oh my gosh, I love the colours on that Grackle, wonderful squirrel shot.

Margaret Adamson said...

HI The Crackle has really beautiful colours in its plumage and with you heavy rain it looks like it is " Water off a 'Crackle's ' back"!!
That Squirrel certainly looks bedraggled! Have a wonderful weekend.

Bob Bushell said...

Oh yes, beautiful images, my favourite is the Grackle, superb.

LOL, the squirrel looks pretty ragged from being in the rain. I love the grackle, the colors are pretty. Thank you for linking up with my critter party. Have a happy weekend!

Love your first shot, Karen!

Rain, rain go away...we have rain too this week..

Andy said...

Rain or shine it's always a struggle for the wild animals.

Ela said...

Great pictures in the rain !
Have a happy weekend :)

Naquillity said...

terrific pics... they don't seem to mind the weather at all. the rain seems to be less invasive on the grackle than the squirrel though... Stoney Braveheart seems to be drowned... hope all is well. have a great day~

rainy looks cool

Muffie said...

Wet or not, that bird's plumage is magnificent! Of course, there's my nemesis, too.

Sylvia K said...

Awesome captures as always, Karen!! That Grackle could use a better name, but couldn't be more beautiful!! And of course, those wet squirrels were my first smiles for the day!! Thanks for sharing the beauty and the fun!! Have a great weekend, hope you get some good weather soon!

Indrani said...

Aww.. I hope they are warm soon.
Great captures of them in drenched state.

Linda W. said...

Great water droplet detail on the bird. And the squirrel pics are funny - looks like he's having a bad hair day! :)

Thanks so much for the information you shared re. Pinterest. I'm going to give it a try. Appreciate the help!

Gunilla Bäck said...

Poor Stoney! He looks like he would need a towel. :)

Adam Jones said...

Oh the poor thing looks sodden.

Linda aka Crafty Gardener said...

poor squirrel, though he doesn't seem to mind the wet tail
We've had rain and wind most of the week, sure hope it improves soon.

bree said...

poor animal's it raining hard here too.

DeniseinVA said...

Oh my goodness, that must have been a very heavy downpour. One thing I was very impressed was that you have caught those gorgeous shades in the grackle. Fantastic!

Me said...

Those sure are some soggy critters. Poor Stoney, he's a mess!

Christian Weiß said...

Poor animals, it is hard to see when they have to fight with weather and hunger.

Ramona said...

He he, poor critters! Aww!! <3

Sallie (FullTime-Life) said...

Oh poor Stoney B. He looks bedraggled. But still so cute.

Rambling Woods said...

It has been raining here too

Lisa Gordon said...

I LOVE Stoney!

The grackle's colors are just gorgeous, Karen.

Stephanie said...

May I ask what camera are you using. All your images come out so detailed and such clarity. Love these and the rain drops too!

Robyn said...

Karen,
This time of year, rain is better than snow! Earlier this week the weatherman announced Canada and Alaska had warmer temps than the South Dakota Black Hills. We are north of the Black Hills and 5-10* cooler, on average.

Wonderful color capture on the grackle. Stoney Braveheart doesn't look too bothered by the rain.

Linda said...

The grackle looks brilliant, but poor squirrel!

Roan said...

Soaked critters! That grackle is amazing!

ladyfi said...

Wow - fabulous shots!

Anni said...

I am amazed at the grackle colors you captured!! Incredible.

Poor squirrel!

Tree Hugger - Suzan said...

A very wet squirrel and lovely bird!! You don't usually see wet squirrels. Guess I'm not out when they are and they have to eat - rain, snow, sleet or hail!! Well - bet they're not out in hail!

RedPat said...

Not a good hair day for Stony!

Gattina said...

Love the squirrel pictures ! They are so cute !

lina@a happy family said...

The squirrel needs blow dry :)
Awesome shots, Karen.

pixiedusk said...

They look so fragile and pretty! #WeeklyTopShot

Pat said...

Gorgeous plumage on the Grackle. Poor little Stony! He looks miserable.

EG CameraGirl said...

The squirrel sure looks scruffy!

David Gascoigne said...

I find the image of the grackle with the raindrops glistening nothing short of exceptional, Karen, This is surely one of our most under-appreciated birds.

Sharon Wagner said...

Look at that soggy tail!

Gail Dixon said...

Sorry about all the rain, but it made for an amazing shot of that grackle. Look how waterproofed he is! Gorgeous colors, too.

Pamela Gordon said...

The grackle never looked so beautiful. And poor Stoney looks a bit bedraggled in the rain. Great photos!

Stewart M said...

It would seem that the grackle is having a better time of it than the squirrel! He looks a bit damp!

Really like the sculptures in the other post - although I think postage and handling my prevent me from getting some!

Cheers - Stewart M - Melbourne

Kenneth Cole Schneider said...

Enjoyed the soggy assortment!

Stuart Price said...

That is one wet squirrel.............

Kirsten said...
