I Am Not A Crook

Oh, look at all the pretty people out there!

Last week, Trisha commented on the Saturday Squirrel picture noting that the featured subject was sitting in the “crook of the tree.”  After first considering how long it had even been since I’d last sqturday squirrel logoheard that term, I next realized that I get a lot of photos of squirrels in the crooks of trees at the park.  Well, there are a lot of squirrels and a lot of trees there, so that makes sense.  But I seem to get more than my fair share of crooked critters, probably because the squirrels start scampering up the nearest tree as I come walking by, pausing to check out the status of their human pursuer from the first crook they reach.  And that’s where I can get a quickie pic of the cutie as they look down upon me.

I also remembered I had an even more adorable picture of a squirrel in a crook from my latest park set, and here it is for this week’s Saturday Squirrel.  Isn’t that guy just so damn awww-worthy?

Oh, I can just picture all the fame, fortune and squirrel girls I'll be getting thanks to this photo op!

For looking so beautiful sitting on the crook of a tree, you’ve definitely earned all of the benefits of being a celebrity.  Even if it is only on my blog…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. sitting on the crook is much much better than sitting between the chairs :o) have a super squirrels saturday :o)

  2. I really find it a better place than to run on roads to get crush under a tyre, fall flat on ground. Poor creatures, I feel so sad when I see them crossing the road to die untimely. There are lots of them around my neighborhood. Speeding cars create havoc.
    I have come back from my religious trip. May check my today’s post to know more.

    • For how many I see run out in front of cars, there aren’t nearly as many casualties as their nocturnal brethren. Possum and raccoon carcasses litter the roads around here… especially lately for some reason.

    Crook is probably a term I picked up from my grandparents or from the hillbilly side of my family! No matter what you call that part of the tree, squirrels look extra cute posing there. You’re lucky so many stop there to look down at you – it’s such a perfect setting for their cuteness. This Saturday squirrel is adorable and definitely awww-worthy!

  5. definitely a cutie! Crook means sick here, as in unwell. 😀

    • I think you’ve even used that term in a comment before. There are some crook trees at the park that are leafless and have all kinds of strange growths on them. I hope they aren’t contagious…

  6. There’s also the shepherd’s crook …

  7. HA! tells you how old I am… I thought of Richard Nixon IMMEDIATELY!! LOL!
    Cute… 😀
