Yesterday we placed some Lay's potato chips in the pan for the expecting does
and the bucks that come to eat and drink daily here in our yard for many years.

I started laughing when I saw the squirrel was sitting in the pan of potato chips and really loving the taste of the potato chips!
I had to share these with you and I hope you get a smile on your face and joy in your heart as I did watching this squirrel!

Later the does came and they too were eating potato chips out of the pan!

When I really got amused was when I saw that squirrel go to the fresh water
and drink up a whole lot of water after eating those salted potato chips!

Lovely photos Sheri. Yes, squirrels will eat just about anything ... I'm so glad it left some for the Deer!

Sheri, I didn't know that deer would eat potato chips, but of course they are veggies. Hilarious!

I didn't know deer like that either! I know they love apples! When I can, I put some apple pieces out!
