It’s always a joy for me when I can capture a squirrel in a standing position… it’s one of those squirrel poses that I don’t get often enough, but the results are usually pure gold when I do. That fluffy, light colored underbelly that usually rides the ground is one of the sciurine features that doesn’t get enough credit for how adorable it renders the creatures. I’ve gotten some happy, shocked, curious, and even some neutral reactions from squirrels in this upright stance.
But this guy….. he looks a tad pissed. And with those dangerous looking claws we talked about a few posts ago that he’s menacingly flaunting in front of him, he reminds me of a bear about to go on the attack! Calm down, fellow, I’m no threat to you…. or your pick-a-nick baskets full of honey-covered acorns you’re preparing to raid!
If you don’t mind, I’ll just wait over here behind the bushes while this week’s Saturday Ursine… er, Squirrel goes on the rampage.
Have a great weekend everyone!
