And the really funny thing was, I was watching Brokeback Mountain when it happened.
I looked up and out the window, saw one squirrel pointed down, the other up, looking at each other. Then one squirrel sort of batted the other one on the nose. I called my SO, “Hey, look, there’s two squirrels fighting out here!” Then the one ran down and mounted the other one, and my face went from to :eek:. I said, “No, there’s two squirrels having sex out here!”
All in all it lasted about five seconds…both of them hanging off the trunk. Talk about acrobatics. Then they both ran off, in different directions, and hardly seemed to notice each other after that.
My SO, who’d come out by now, said, “Are we going to have squirrel babies around here now? Just keep them away from your veggies.” (I grow vegetables in pots on my balcony, from which the tree is about six feet away.)
Talk about brazen! Right in front of our window! At window height!
