The bitten mango

Posted by
Devi (Chennai, India) on 11 April 2018 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

A few mangoes have become large. Many are becoming large. This one has already been half eaten by the squirrels !! This tree is in our backyard and the fruits are very very sweet .

Graciel·la (Vic. Catalonia) from CAT. New European State, Poland

In this picture I like to see the mango juice as it slides. It seems that it is indeed delicious. Here, we buy mangoes that have a red color.
Have a nice day my friend.

@Graciel·la (Vic. Catalonia): These are unripe..They will become yellow soon. There are red varieties too..we buy them in the market :)

@Phil: Thank you Phil :))

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

Great capture of this fruitful harvest! From experience it seems like there is a short turnaround between ripe and spent mangos.

11 Apr 2018 11:42am

@Steven: This is yet to become a fruit..The inside ( the exposed cut portion ) becomes real orange:)))

@Existence Artistique: Merci beaucoup existence :)

Don from Spokane, United States

A fine picture of the half eaten fruit. Squirrels are smart and know a good thing to eat.

11 Apr 2018 2:43pm

@Don: Yes..I suppose God has given them fantastic taste buds :)

Tomix from landerneau, France

Squirrels have big mouth !

11 Apr 2018 2:45pm

@Tomix: Yes and a tongue for taste :)))))))))))))))))))))))))

Claudiel from belgium, Belgium

Squirrels have chance to find so sweety fruits.

11 Apr 2018 4:22pm

@Claudiel: Yes..extrasensory NOSE !! Ha ha ha :)

Steve Rice from Olympia, United States

Those squirrels! They will be sampling more.

11 Apr 2018 5:44pm

@Steve Rice: Yes sure they will. Once they are almost ripe, the gradener plucks them and we share. of course leaving a few for the squirrels and parak3eets. The crows are lazy..they will wait for someone else to eat half and then have an easy " feast on the left overs " .

Willem from Noord-Scharwoude, Netherlands

You have a tasty backyard Devi.

11 Apr 2018 6:17pm

@Willem: Yes Willem. We have limes, Moringas and Papayas too:)

I guess the squirrels need to eat as well.

12 Apr 2018 12:44am

@Michael Rawluk: Sure..I believe so too :)

Irene from San Francisco, United States

Those squirrels know what to eat. Great shot.

@Irene: Thank you Irene :)

Elaine Hancock from Olney, United States

Those pesky squirrels. They get into everything! I planted some garlic today and they dug it up! A great image!

12 Apr 2018 1:24am

@Elaine Hancock: Aw!! That's too bad Elaine..Hope they stop digging the soil !

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

It is always a dilemma whether to leave the fruit to ripen further, risking it to birds and squirrels, or to pick it now before its peak.

12 Apr 2018 1:37am

@Harry: We pick ninety percent of the mangoes( what ever is left after they bite ) leaving ten percent for them !!

B. Thomas from Arlington, Texas, United States

I'm glad you share your goodies with the critters. Some people think they are pests, but I like to watch them, and my cats really like to watch them from the window.

12 Apr 2018 2:24am

@B. Thomas: I love watching squirrels too. They are an energetic lot ! After all God creates most of these for them.:)))

Sam from Chennai, India

The squirrels seem to know the tasty fruits. A fine shot of these mangoes in the tree.
Thank you Devi. :)

12 Apr 2018 3:19am

@Sam: Yes Sam :) Once they ripen more, we will have parakeets..they come in groups and make a bit racket !! It is a pleasure to watch these birds :)
