#113 – Squirrelshead Revisited

Photo taken: October 3, 2014

Far be it from me to ever suggest that squirrel taxidermy ever become the next macabre trend in home decor… but if it was, wouldn’t this lovely, big-eyed squirrel’s head holding a plump green nut in its mouth look just amazing protruding from your wall?  It would be quite the conversation piece, no doubt.  This squirrel must have been crossbred with a giraffe to have a neck that long… and I was in perfect position to give the illusion that this critter was made into a wall plaque that was hung on this tree.  Or maybe he IS a part of the tree?  You never know in these spooky old woods…

I originally posted this as a Saturday Squirrel challenge where I suggested my readers make up the “story” behind the photo, and it got some very interesting captions!

  1. That is an amazing photo is a bunch of ways…..capturing that moment “just so” to have the weird angle – the fact that guy has scored a mega-acorn does give him a rather weird profile.

    Ack! The nut is stuck!

  3. A pair of those on either side of a fireplace like sconces…priceless.

    You had to take a cute photo and mention “taxidermy”, didn’t you? Poor squirrel.

    The first thing I thought when I saw it is how unnaturally long its neck looked! There actually was a taxidermied squirrel in the bar in Concrete where we had my class reunion. It was the whole thing though. Like you, I would never suggest squirrel taxidermy become a thing but using just the head like this photo would have made it a little funny. Instead it was just creepy!

  6. A classic squirrelly profile! He could be called to Hollywood!
