#107 – S Marks The Spot

Photo taken: November 9, 2017

Squirrel photography is like that proverbial box of chocolates… you never know what you’re going to get.  With how quick and unpredictable the critters are, what exactly you’re going to capture when the picture takes probably isn’t what you saw when you pushed the button.  Here’s one of my favorite examples of a “huh?” squirrel photo….  I apparently caught him in the process of turning to bite at his flea bitten rear end.  The result is a squirrel who, along with the curvature of his tail, is perfectly representing the letter his species name starts with.  If the song “YMCA” needed another village person to make out the “S,” this squirrel would gladly don his hard hat and volunteer to do the dance move…

    I was trying to work out if it was one squirrel or two.

  3. One of my jobs is to try to take the picture before I need to take the picture. Sometimes, it works. Mostly, it’s just like yours. If I’m lucky, it’s a great shot. Otherwise, DELETE DELETE DELETE.

    • Yeah, that doesn’t work too well when trying to take photos of animals that act like they’re on sugar highs. I would have never taken up squirrel photography back in the days of real film…

  4. What a beautiful squirrel.

    That is an odd pose but in front of such a lovely background. Biting fleas never looked so elegant!
