The Great Unseen


Why the intense stare off to your left, Mr. Squirrel?  What’s going on over there?


Is there some kind of danger I should know about that has your mouth agape?  Speak up, buddy!


OK, now you’ve got me really curious.  I’ve never seen a squirrel so adamantly focused on ANYTHING before like you are on whatever’s out of the frame there.  Snap out of it, man!


Dude!  Are you going to be alright?  Do you need me to fetch you some water?  Maybe some acorn smelling salts?  What could have possibly stunned you into such a sciurine stupor?

It's....... it's........

It’s……. it’s……..

sqturday squirrel logoHelp him out folks.  Just what did this poor little Saturday Squirrel witness that made the fur stand up on the back of his tail!?!?!?  Feel free to provide your own answer in the comments section below…

And whether it’s The Fourth or just the fourth, have a great weekend everyone!

  1. New girl squirrel in the neighborhood……!

    A gigantic bag of nuts…

    He can’t remember if he left the stove on. Or maybe just trying to figure out when was the last time he pooped….

    I’ve often wondered what they think they see when they stare so intently at an area where I don’t detect any movement or anything. I love that last frame when it’s looking right at you. That’s so cute!

    • I usually miss it when they turn their head right at me, but I was lucky to catch it that time! I actually prefer the preceding pic where he’s semi-turned my way, and has a look like he’s completely aghast over something….

    I often wonder what animals are thinking. Maybe this one was keeping guard and turned a 90 degree angle into your frame.

  6. I think he’s checking you out the entire time. You’ve definitely got his attention in the last two shots. The last one he’s decided you’re not a threat and he’s taking a closer look.

    • I shot that pic from my computer room window about 30 feet away…. when I try to go outside and get pics, they do perceive me as a threat and head for the hills!

      • Interesting. He’s either got incredible eyesight or he sees something else. Mine hang off of my roof looking at me, sit practically at my feet, and climb into the tree to look at me at eye level, but they refuse to take a peanut from my hand. They run away.

    Happy independence day. :-D. Perhaps it is a Mommy to be Squirrel and she just felt the “quickening”
    (the first time the baby moves and one realizes the whole thing is really real!) 😀

  8. You. He was looking at YOU 🙂 Happy 4th — or — whatever you celebrate!

    Cute chap! There’s only one thing that could make him stare like that – a lady squirrel! Or maybe the band “New Squirrels on the Block” was staging a comeback in the park that day?

  10. Maybe if I freeze……the paparazzi will go away.

    He’s seen that obscenely fat nearly naked guy on your side bar one too many times.

    There are squirrels where I walk each day. They always seem to give me a look like “Will you just please go away and leave me alone”.
