There’s a lot of these little brick memorials on the ground in front of trees at my local park, and I’ve gotten more than a handful of interesting pics of squirrels doing a variety of things on them over the years. When this guy hopped onto one of these squirrel-sized pedestals in front of me, I naturally started shooting hoping to add yet another park brick entry to my Saturday Squirrel series.
Well, this guy not only did something neat while perched up there… but it’s something I rarely see a squirrel do in any instance, let alone get a photo of it.
And of course, I missed it…. but I did get this:
In between snaps, he stood bolt upright…. I mean, upright like this famous pic of mine! Unfortunately, by the time the picture took, he had scrunched back down a bit into the position you see there. The little bastard was even looking right at me when he did it! Argh!
And of course, he didn’t do it again…
By the way, nice junk, dude. Maybe you should get a loincloth…
Have a great weekend everyone!
You’ve finally done it. You put that squirrel up on a pedestal.
Yes, and I think he’d trying to do his best “David” impersonation…
He looks like an award for “Best Squirrel Post” – a little something to put on your mantle – with or without loincloth!
Well, they don’t make Oscar wear a loincloth, so Best Squirrel Post can go au naturale too…
A squirrel stand up comedian toying with you! Once again underscoring the fact these little devils cannot be trusted to behave nicely.
Among their many admirable traits!
Well it IS Spring and more than one male of any species is showing off what they got in order to find a female who appreciates it the most. 😎
I have a feeling if I tried to do that, I’d be arrested rather than praised on a blog…
He does look rather pleased with himself, standing there on his little plinth!
Plinth, now there’s a great word I’ve rarely heard in my life!
There should definitely be plinths around the place featuring squirrels.
I am going to have to start calling those bricks in the park plinths now. It’ll just be one more reason for them to think I’m nuts and throw me out…
