Spiderwebs

And we have liftoff...

And we have liftoff…

Trees can look quite pretty when they are blooming in the Springtime, elegant when they are fully leafed in the Summer, and breathtaking when they are colorfully plumed in the sqturday squirrel logoAutumn.  But the bare trees of winter have a certain charm to them as well… especially when they resemble a complex, wiry grid like the tree in the photo above does.  And the best thing of all about naked trees is that there’s nowhere for their arboreal inhabitants to hide from the prying eyes of their human admirers below.  If I’d have taken this picture in July rather than January, there’s no way I’d have ever seen that squirrel rocketing up that diagonal branch like a missile being launched from the trunk.

So this week, you not only get a cute Saturday Squirrel, but some aesthetically pleasing branch art to go along with it!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    That squirrel is so low to the branch I didn’t see it right away. But then I was looking for spiderwebs at first. My caffeine hasn’t kicked yet. Once I read squirrel and branches like spiderwebs, they popped right out at me! I wonder if the squirrels rejoice when they get their privacy screen back in the spring?

  6. That’s a squirrel in full gallop!

    I like the skeleton trees … at least for photographic purposes. It’s also when I can actually see the sky. After the leaves arrive, all I can see it canopy. We could have thousands of squirrels up there and I’d never see them.

  7. It’s super squirrel the space cowboy! 😄
