They're Back for More

Yesterday afternoon the threesome returned for more plums.  The two babies went up the tree; the mom stayed, calling them down, I think.  Bigger baby came back down the trunk (head first: they  can do this, says Wikipedia, because they can swivel their hip joints such that they can go either direction, head first).  But Littler Baby stayed up there and waited around for Ed to go get his camera which has a pretty good zoom.  But she certainly wasn't afraid of having her picture taken.  Note the toes on the left back foot sticking out behind the branch.  (click on photo to enlarge it.)  And the plums surrounding her.

No sign of them today, though.  Not hungry for plums.  Gone somewhere else to eat pears, maybe.
