Midday Crash

Must….. get……. nuts…… ZZZZZZZZZZZZ

You know how your body’s fuel tank can sometimes suddenly get very low in the middle of the day.  There’s a whole line of energy boosting products out there, that may or may not kill you, whose sole intention is to provide a temporary pick-me-up boost to get you through the rest of the day.  Animals don’t often have to deal with the societal pressures that cause people to spurn our natural circadian rhythms, and thus throw our bodies out of whack.  But maybe, sometimes, they get more than a little tired in the middle of their busy workday.  Haven’t you ever been in the middle of climbing down the trunk of a tree and just fell asleep before?  At least, figuratively anyway?  Well, now you feel like this week’s sluggish Saturday Squirrel, who could certainly use a little nap back at the nest.  Unless someone has a Red Bull handy……

No wait, I think that might be a bad idea to give to an animal who is notorious for its hyperactive behavior already…

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Oh I think that guy is probably just meditating…..I can almost hear the “ooooooooommmmmm” and I could SWEAR I see a little smile on his face. Maybe that’s not meditation but him picturing last night’s date with the hot squirrel babe who lives further up the tree?????


    • I’m not sure he picked the best place to try out transcendentalism. I mean, pets in the park are supposed to be on leashes, but I don’t think there’s such a rule for the hawks! He may want to keep at least one of those eyes open…

  2. I once passed out in the hallway at home. I was so tired, I just fell into sleep. Apparently even for people — red bull and all — you can get so tired, your brain turns off. But never while climbing down a tree. At least, not yet.

  3. Great capture! Happy weekend. And you’re right, hide the espresso and Red Bull from these nutcases. 🐿

    Hopefully he’s not going to slide down the tree and fall on his head.

    That’s so cute! I’ve found squirrels completely passed out on my deck before but I’ve never seen sleepiness hit one while they’re climbing down a tree trunk.

    • It’s funny how he looks like he’s just sleeping there! I’m pretty sure I just happened to catch him mid blink… though I have to say, I was never really aware of squirrels blinking their eyes much. Anyway, this is why I take so many pictures… even ones that might seem boring, because with squirrels, you never really know what you’re going to get until you upload them all!
