A Tail Of Transparency

Please do not readjust your squirrel...

Please do not readjust your squirrel…

Gotta love what that noted intellectual Beavis once described as “trick pornography.”  What you see above is a squirrel leaping from the trunk of my backyard tree onto another sqturday squirrel logobranch…. back end towards us.  But that tail….. is it live or is it Memorex?  You can see the branches as well as the hind legs of the squirrel through it’s normally thickly furred tail.  Even weirder is that while the lighter colored outer border of his tail is almost completely opaque… it’s the inner portion of fluff that doesn’t seem to really be there.  I’m not sure how this illusion came about exactly since it wouldn’t make much sense for only the inside part of the tail to be see-through… but we’ll just chalk it up to the same photo magic that once gave me a two-tailed squirrel.

Just another way those Saturday Squirrels of mine can continue to amaze us….

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. it looks a little like a weimaraner… maybe weim-squirrels exist?… then I probably have one on my side lol

  2. Interesting…..some squirrels do have VERY floofy tails with LONG hair on them…..they seem to be the best “signal-squirrels” in a squirrel group. They do all the waving of tails when danger is about because they have the best “flags” in the business at their disposal. This guy looks big too – like he knows his stuff. I suspect he may be a “tail signal instructor”……a MASTER signal teacher. Lucky you capturing one – they are tough to find!

  3. Must be some sort of magical squirrel and in the same category as the bob-tailed squirrel we saw yesterday. Guess they come in all sizes, shapes and tail thickness!

    You sure get some squirrels with interesting tail anomalies there: red tails, striped tails, two tails and now see through tails! My squirrels aren’t very fancy with their tail decorations, only showing up with bobbed or skinned tails which aren’t nearly as cute.

  5. I’m telling you … it’s all done with smoke and mirrors! More mirrors. Less smoke.

  6. Ohhhhhh I like that cosmic squirrel tail.

    He’s phasing out, slipping back into his own space-time continuum. This could be the first ever photo of an extra-dimensional squirrel.
