#12 – The Blurry Grail

Photo taken: March 15, 2018

I had mentioned in an earlier entry that the Holy Grail of squirrel photography, at least for me, would be to capture a picture of a squirrel in mid-leap high up in a tree.  This photo I took earlier this year is the closest I have come to that yet.  The setting is actually perfect… an ant’s eye view of a squirrel who is clearly leaping between branches since there is no wood at all underneath him.  It irks me somewhat that the squirrel came out fuzzy, though leaping shots usually end up like that.  Still, it’s a pretty good example of the death defying acrobatics squirrels are willing to make way up off the ground every single day, and live to tell about it…

    He’s just standing on tiptoes having a good stretch.

    • He would be doing that if that darned branch weren’t about ten feet under him. I’ve just realized that’s another thing keeping this photo from being perfect since there’s the illusion he’s leaping from there and not the bigger limb behind him…
