CAMPUS DINING

On a Sunday morning it's quiet on the university campus.  So even though the munching sound was small, it caught my attention. 
This squirrel was savoring a meal so tasty that he wasn't about to leave--

just because I was pointing a camera.

I finally got too close for comfort and the delicious meal fell to the ground.

I should have known.  This campus squirrel was chowing down on the standard fare of students--

Ramen Noodles--a filling meal for about the price of a soft drink.

I felt sorry I'd interrupted the banquet.  But it only took a moment for the squirrel to recover half of his prize. 

 
He carried it up high where he could enjoy it.
I picked up the other piece and put it back in the tree.

Cute and funny series of squirrel photos. Can't believe the squirrel is eating uncook noodles.

BTW, thanks for visiting my blog.

Campus dining at it's finest! What a cute little squirrel - you always seem to be at the right place at the right time.

The kids used to smash up the packages alltogether with the packet of "flavour" and eat it all raw from the bag- called "ghetto chips"...ick! Guess if it's good enough for squirrels- why not.

Our school students eat these uncooked noodles here in Australia too at break times. Intruiged, I tried them once. Can't see the attraction myself, but then I'm not a squirrel or a student.Any food fresh and juicy doesn't hold any appeal it seems.Your squirrels are cute. One of the things that appeals to me about your part of the world.

It was that high fat Ramen that kept him so plump during your snowy winter. :)
I'd have put the other half back in the tree, too.
