They don't make tree bark like they used to!

They don’t make tree bark like they used to!

It may look like this week’s Saturday Squirrel is hanging on for dear life as the part of my tree he was scampering on suddenly decided to rip away from the rest of the trunk.  But that split in the tree has been there since I moved here in 2009, and as you can see from the mass of leaves crushed into the V it forms, some of my squirrels have made a nice little sqturday squirrel logonest out of this mysterious formation from the tree’s past.  Occasionally, one of the squirrels will even climb to the tippy top of this oversized splinter and perch there as they overlook their front yard kingdom.

Why, you might ask?  Because they know damn good and well it makes for a cute picture, that’s why.  My squirrels are getting better and better at hamming it up for the camera, loving the exposure they’re getting on my blog!

Speaking of exposure on my blog… have you been pondering an entry for my Second Annual Contest of Whatever?  If not…. why?  The month is halfway over, and there have only been two participants so far.  We gotta top last year’s field of 13!  You have until the early morning hours of March 1st to show off your amazing creativity!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    I’m thinking about buying a decent camera so I can take pictures of my new batch of squirrels that live in my tree. My smartphone camera sucks, lol.

    My kingdom for a gigantic nut! That’s what the squirrel is saying. Or it’s just my over imagination. 🙂

  4. I was so afraid the poor squirrel was demoralized by not having a date for Valentine’s Day that he was thinking of ending it all. I’m glad it was a simple pose. I feel MUCH better now.

    Sounds like you’re getting your squirrels trained up right. Mine always leave their perches as soon as they see the camera.

    • I do a lot of my filming from open windows, particularly anything in the backyard. This one was taken from my front door. If only squirrels know how photogenic they were, they’d be much more willing to pose for the camera!

    Quite the furry lumberjack, Bill. Wow.

  8. Little Guy and I are collaborating on an entry. I just need to write down the rules again! 🙂

    Love the perch!

  9. I need to get my camera out and myself organised to get my post done. I have an idea, finally.
