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 nest 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!
