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 branch…. 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!
