Hungry mother squirrel digs into the luscious flower. It's in the afternoon, so she's in a hurry to get enough nutrition to feed her babies and leave some for herself. The palm trees in front of my house are teeming with life. Squirrels seem to be near the top of the inter-species hierarchy. Of course, if a hawk can get in there, all bets are off. This momma squirrel is a hero in my book.
