Why is it that sometimes my favorite pictures come from shots that are by all other means complete photography failures? Because squirrels are such fast movers, photos like the one above are a quite common result when trying to capture their antics. Occasionally, those blurry, cut-off monstrosities actually turn out to look even more interesting than if I’d have gotten a perfect shot of the furry subject. This photo, of an upwardly mobile squirrel who was taking off like a bat out of hell to his deluxe apartment in the sky to enjoy the peanut he dug out of the blanket of leaves in my yard, just plain amuses me. Sure, I may have chopped of his head, but still managed to get his complete undercarriage dangling from below the branch he was using like a rung on a ladder… which you can’t help but giggle at. Once again, shitty photography meets Saturday Squirrel to come up with another winner….. or maybe wiener….
Have a great weekend everyone!
