#26 – Riding The Short Branch

Photo taken: September 23, 2015

No, this squirrel doesn’t have a massive case of morning wood… though that might explain the curious look on his face.  This park squirrel found himself a branch just big enough for him to sit on, and apparently wondered why I felt the need to photograph him in his happy zone.  That expression that is massive doses of wonderment and awareness of his surroundings makes this photo such a winner.  If only he knew how absolutely cute he looked posing there like that, he would understand why he was getting his picture taken by the weird looking human on the ground.

  1. the position of the short branch made me giggle…

    Maybe it was a female squirrel and Ms Squirrel thinks along the lines “Oh, shuck, had I known my picture was being taken, I’d have scheduled a manicure.” ..

  3. I imagine they’re used to the weird camera happy human by now…

  4. A fine specimen of squirrel-itude if ever there was one. Excellent coat – I like the goldtone fur on his chest…..he looks like he has recently been “detailed”. Kinda like my Buick was this week.


  5. In squirrel real estate, I think that’s considered a deck.

    That branch was just made for him.

    It could be a look of indignation 🤣🤣

  8. You have the same squirrels we do, with that red mixed in with the gray. I had a squirrel in my flat feeder that decided to move in today, so I got a lot of pictures. Garry says I should name her (I think it’s a she because she’s a lot smaller than the monster who was hanging around yesterday).

    • The coloring (or I actually think it may be a bit of a lighting trick) on that squirrel is not very common around here. There is some brownish and reddish colors mixed in with the squirrels around here, but seeing your photos, not to the extent as it appears yours have it. Oklahoma has the bigger, more brownish/tannish colored squirrels I’ve seen in other photos… but we don’t have them where I live it seems…
