#173 – Sweet Dreams

Photo taken: March 21, 2014

Awwwwwww, it’s a sleeping squirrel!  Isn’t that just so damned cute?  And look at the way he’s almost hugging the branch while he saws off some logs!  OK, I guess it’s time to be the Reality Fairy and ruin the magic for you all.  The squirrel isn’t really sleeping.  Planked out on that branch, yes.  But I just happened to get lucky enough to catch him during a blink… so that, as far as anyone viewing just this one piece of visual evidence is concerned, this squirrel is sound asleep!  Photographing the expected can be quite exciting, but a lot of times it’s the accidental things that end up on your memory card that can make picture taking so rewarding…

  3. This photo made getting up today worth it. That, and some peaceful and uplifting Eminem songs.

  4. ody N biskit; sleepin ore chillaxin; dad capsured a grate fotoz !! 😉 ♥♥

  5. That is absolutely CUTE……he does look asleep and securely “fastened” to the limb (although I think a hammock would be safer).


    • I dunno…. it seems like Gilligan and the Skipper always were having accidents in their hammocks on the island. It only takes one klutzy squirrel to completely ruin the hammock experience…

    That’s a great shot! I don’t believe I’ve ever seen a sleeping squirrel. We had a whole scurry of squirrels in our yard, front and back. Black, brown, and gray. Running around all over the yard and trees. They even made a racket! I bet afterwards they all went & crashed like this guy.

  9. What a little sweet sleeper. Awww.

  10. He stayed up too late partying…with my underwear. Seriously, I can’t let it go!

  11. He’d look like he could be here in the Mile High City’s hot temps. We all look like that, come to think of it.
