Dumpster Diving

I walked by this trash can and heard a loud rustling noise emanating from the INSIDE.
It startled me momentarily because no one was around. Then I thought, it must have been my imagination until I looked back and saw the squirrel.

He must have been dumpster diving inside and was startled by the rustling noise coming from the OUTSIDE of the trash can and came out to investigate.
It took no time at all before he wandered back inside.
He probably noticed I was just a harmless photographer.

Oh! He's too cute!

I hope he won't get squished by the rubbish people throw while he was rummaging the bin! @.@

Hee hee. That is too cute! I love squirrels to bits but they really are just rats with big, bushy tails.

They were cute until they got in my attic, now they are tree rats;)

Nice pics.

I can always see the similar scene over here.

But the squirrel is replaced by a monkey.

Hope he doesn't get stuck inside! Far cuter than a rat, for sure.

EastCoastLife: It's kind of dark in there, I hope he has a light.

Lina: Funny you should mention that because the garbage man was getting close to emptying all the cans in the area.

Emm: You're right, people feed squirrels, but not rats.

Yogi: I feel for you. Worse if there is a growing family.

Rainfield61: Wherever we go, same mischief, but different creature.

llandudnopictures: With so many garbage bins around, it's like a buffet.

Ryan: I've seen many killed on the roads. Probably safer in the park like this one.

Betchai: Glad you like it. Animals are funny when we see them mimic human behavior.

Squirrels are cute and smart but they can be destructive.

great catch and funny situation, its kind of sad though that we change environment so much that wildlife needs to check the garbage cans...happy weekend from m!
