Plant Eating Squirrel Redux

I gave up catching cute little birds on the birdbath so the camera is back at the pond. It has been very quite recently with the exception of the squirrels. They are chowing down on the various pond plants just about every day. Previously they concentrated on the Spade plant which they chewed back to ground level. Here they are enjoying some of the other plants. The squirrel in the second picture is even chewing on the Louisiana Iris plants that we separated last week. The Iris had overgrown its pots so we split it into multiple pots and trimmed the leaves. The Iris blooms were great this year and we are looking forward to even better blooms next year.
