Did you ever have one of those days when you just wanted to bury your head in the sand and pretend the world had gone away? Looks like this poor little squirrel did. Just what in the heck is this critter doing?
Is he overreacting to having a really bad fur day?
Is he scrambling to find the cellphone he dropped from his nest?
Did he try to scurry down the tree too fast and end up head planting instead?
Is he having scary visions of a fourth annual postseason squirrel boycott?
Of course, while I’m pondering all of these silly questions based upon this ridiculous looking photo… you are probably trying to figure out what exactly you are seeing here. Well, it turns out the foreground is actually a small mound of dirt at our park, and the tree with our squirrel on it is actually about 10 feet behind it. So the hill is merely obscuring the bottom portion of what would otherwise be just another boring picture of a squirrel…
But because The Nest loves photographic optical illusions, we’re awarding this amateur ostrich the honor of being this week’s Saturday Squirrel!
Keep your head above ground this weekend, everyone!
