a moment of beautiful – through a stained glass window

the space: the big maple outside our front door

the beautiful: seeing a squirrel in the tree through the stained glass window in our stairwell


As I was working at my desk, my husband called to me.  Through our stained glass window, he could see a silhouette of our grey squirrel.  I’m glad the squirrel waited long enough for me to snap his picture!

Can you see the squirrel through the stained glass?

  4. Is he near the trunk on a small branch above the first large branch and below the second large branch? I love the colors of your stained glass!

    • Hi Barbara. Yes, you’ve described his position perfectly! Now that I know what to look for, I see him almost every day, chattering at the birds in the feeder. The window is one I made years ago after taking a class in stained glass. Jane

  5. I think its a figure of a gargoyle, not a squirrel.

    • Hi Stan. Seen through the stained glass, it could be any figure … the magic of the view! Jane
