I can confirm it is/was. The brown bit you see is the top. The squirrel was eaiting it from underneath. I guess that's where all the soft bits are.

Most squirrel species are omnivorous, that's why they are well adapted to living in or near cities. Some species will happily feed on insects and birds' eggs.

Wild squirrels may be carriers of rabies, so try not to feed them to avoid getting bitten.

lol :bsmilie: my old office surrounding is full of squirrels... there was one incident whereby the stupid one sneak into the camera equipment storage room and died there from hunger... and have no idea where it hide itself until it died... really stink the whole room. & the cameras when put close to your face can smell of squirrel DBO (dead body odor) :bsmilie:

the closest i got to them was about less than a meter away, enough for some real closeups

Maybe the squirrel that is small? I think we can't really know how big is the size of the cockroach or the squirrel, since there's nothing to compare it to in the photo.

Spotted this guy munching on a cockroach. He seemed to be enjoying it.

Look like flower to me. See the end part of the object, most cockroach wings are not that colourful. :) I even see stray cat eat lizard & cockroach too if they are very hungry.
