Brown Eyed Squirrel

I can see all of the nuts I've buried with my bionic sight!

I can see all of the nuts I’ve buried with my bionic sight!

sqturday squirrel logoWhile going through my most recent batch of squirrel photos on Monday, I was instantly struck by something very unusual about the pictures I took of one particular squirrel that morning.  Of the thousands of times I’ve taken a squirrel’s photograph before, I don’t ever recall seeing the details of a sciurine’s eyes show up as crystal clear as they did on this little cutie!  Generally, squirrel eyes look like almost solid dark blobs in photos… and before typing up this post, I even checked back on a number of my recent Saturday Squirrel entries to make sure I wasn’t just noticing something I hadn’t before.  Nope, this guy’s peepers stick out like no others I have seen before!

Don't it make my brown eyes blue?

The angle of the sunlight surely played a part in making the true colors of this squirrel’s irises come out, although I think there may be something more to this bright eyed and bushy tailed critter than just some fortunate sun.  Here’s a picture of him scratching where his arm has the sun partially blocked from his face…

I'm starting to think that's a glass eye...

If the eyes are the window to the soul, then this squirrel must be one of the most awesome rodents ever!  This sight for sore eyes is more than worthy of being this week’s Saturday Squirrel!

Have a great weekend everyone, and a happy birthday to sciurophile-in-arms Trisha!

  1. they have much better arm muscles than humans… while we bring a truckload of moneeh to a gym and torture our arms 3 times per week, the squirrels just have it… the world is not fair…

  2. Hey, where did we go
    Days when the acorns came ?
    Down in the hollow
    Playing a new game,
    Barking and a-running, hey, hey,
    Skipping and a-jumping
    In the misty morning fog with
    Our, our hearts a-thumping
    And you, my brown-eyed squirrel,
    You, my brown-eyed squirrel.

    “Old bulging eyes” they call him…

  4. Jeepers creepers! Where’d he get those peepers? Quite a squirrel!

    I’ve never had a squirrel’s eyes show so much detail in a photo before either! The one with it scratching really shows how unusual its eyes are. I’ve never seen one with such light eyes before.

    The radio beat you to planting this particular earworm. Brown Eyed Squirrel came on the radio when I was in the car on Saturday!

    Thank you for the birthday wishes! Sciurophile-in-arms – I like that! Maybe I should add it to my all my profiles.

    • I’m glad you confirmed that the light eyes were unusual because I figured it might have just been a feature of squirrels I never noticed before. The way the photo shouted “something’s odd here!” at me when I first saw it, I was sure it had to be something rare.

      Hmmmm, maybe I should take some time during my four days off this week and try to come up with a Sciurophile-In-Arms badge and offer it to all the squirrel-obsessed bloggers…. not that there’s many of us out there!
