It's a beautiful picture, but quite difficult to think of a caption for it.

The competitors, like this squirrel, are up a gum tree sucking nuts.

Sorry about the wait, but I couldn't get a photo posted before the long outrage... (snicker...)

Yes, that should be left, taken from the kid's perspective...

And now, for something completely different:...
Caption THIS!:

Eric wonders, "Why is the squirrel having an easier time finding food than I am finding alien signals?"

It's judgin' time...

Dis-honorable mention to Julie for: "Hey, this tree doesn't have any nuts?!?" The tree has acorns, Julie - there's one right between the front paws...

Third Place to Michael Roberts for: "The competitors, like this squirrel, are up a gum tree sucking nuts." It's an OAK tree, Mike...

Second Place to Chris S for: "I'll have to branch out, like this tree."

First Place and next post goes to Sarge for "Eric wonders, 'Why is the squirrel having an easier time finding food, than I am finding alien signals?'"

My caption?

[squirrel thought bubble] That's 1/39,000th of my winter food store found... [/thought bubble]

PM going out after this is posted...

OK, I see 9 entries. Let's get at least 1 more, preferably from someone we haven't seen in the thread lately, or in other threads but not here.
