This certainly isn’t the greatest quality squirrel photo I’ve ever taken, but I’ll bet you can quickly spot what caught my eye and kept this image from being tossed like so many others into the virtual recycling bin so that hard drive memory can be better used for more
porn artwork. Look at that tail go! Not only is it clearly in motion, but it looks to be moving in a wave formation! The frayed end of the tail whipping around to form the next ridge looks neat, but not as cool as the wicked curvature that can be seen in the first peak!
No doubt you’ve seen squirrels rather vigorously wag their tails before… a practice which is generally used as a way to communicate with other squirrels much in the same way we might extend another human the finger. The message I read in this furry fella’s flickering rear mudflap was a statement of his worthiness to be this week’s Saturday Squirrel. Ten-four, good buddy… you’ve indeed earned some waves of your own from my appreciative audience!
Have a great weekend… and shake a tailfeather!
