Every once in a while when I’m shooting action shots (When AREN’T squirrels being active?) of my backyard critters, I’ll get a blurry shot of the squirrel in mid jump that makes up for its lack of focus by looking kinda artsy and neat. This is one of my favorites, since the squirrel is in a perfect arc, and it’s almost impossible to tell exactly where he is jumping from or even into. The only clues are those renegade blades of grass that manage to obscure his front leg and nose… but it actually looks like he’s out over my ditch rather than in the grass behind it!
When I see the picture of this week’s Saturday Squirrel, it looks like he’s diving into the ditch, and all I can think of is one of the handful of extremely overplayed songs I hear about three to four times a week at Mecca….
Sorry for the surprise earworm, but try to have a great weekend regardless!
