#15 – Head In The Sand

Photo taken: September 23, 2015

What, you’ve never seen a squirrel with its head buried in the ground before?  Well, now you have!  What do you think about that?

OK, there’s obviously more going on here than meets the eye.  Squirrels don’t do that, and I doubt a squirrel would head-plant that deep into the ground even if it fell out of a tree.  This shot was a very fortunate opportunity that I was lucky to capture before the squirrel moved and ruined it.  You see… the ground that the squirrel head is “buried” in is actually a small hill that was between me and the tree, and the squirrel was in just the right position going down the tree to have just his head obscured by the mound.  But it sure looks natural enough to fool the casual eye into thinking that this squirrel has a little ostrich in him!

    That photo makes me laugh every time I see it! And seeing it after the fish heads video makes me imagine a garden with a row of squirrel hind ends sticking out of the ground next to the row of fish heads.

  4. Figured it was a hill. Probably because we live in hill and dale country. There are big and little hills everywhere. I don’t know what people do when they live on flat land. Must be so boring.

  5. That’s a classic face plant if I ever saw one.


  6. I could make quite the nasty innuendo comment for the photo but will refrain. Santa is coming so I best be on good behavior, right? 😇
