For about the first half hour of my most recent visit to the local park four weeks ago, it seemed like the day was going to be a dud. I didn’t encounter many squirrels, and the few I did cross paths with didn’t provide me with many photographic opportunities. My patience, however, was amply rewarded… and that should be apparent by the fact that this is the fourth straight week I’ve used a photo from that morning in my Saturday Squirrel feature, and I may continue to dip into that album for several weeks to come!
Just look at this little cutie perched as pretty as can be on that small stump of a branch protruding from the trunk of a tree. That’s probably a good 20-30 feet off the ground, yet squirrels aren’t going to get vertigo looking down from even the highest of heights. He’s probably leaped from tree to tree at much, much higher elevation than where he’s sitting now. Thanks for taking the time from your busy day to strike an adorable pose for me, fella! You get to be this week’s Saturday Squirrel!
The love and adoration of all of my readers, that’s what!
Have a wonderful Fall weekend everyone!
