Pecans in the Wild

From its perch in a birch, eastern gray squirrel savors a succulent snack

a meaty pecan taken from its private reserve next door,
the fruit of a pair of massive pecan trees, 

lovingly planted sometime in the middle of the last century by the residents of a cozy urban cottage 
long since demolished in favor of another fast food joint;
property now of the urban wildlife league.

Tame or wild, 
natural or planted,
one thing is certain...

Nature doesn't end at the city limits.
