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!
