Beauty In Motion

Frozen in time. Maybe we should unfreeze him now…

A squirrel in motion tends to remain in motion… though if a photographer is lucky, they can capture the graceful appearance of one in mid-leap, and the result shows the grace these critters possess in their sometimes frantic looking movement.  I was particularly fond of the smooth S-curve that can be traced out from the squirrel’s nose to the end of its tail.  What a model of aerodynamic efficiency!

Saturday’s Squirrel is full of grace, and that’s why we love them as we leap into the last quarter of 2022!

Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Very balletic leap (is that a word?!)……nice gentle “S” curve. I can almost picture a pink tutu on this one. Almost.

    I’ll challenge any squirrel to stay airborne as long as I can.

    If I tried that my arms would splinter on landing.

    He’s very graceful! I put a peach on the lawn yesterday for a little chipmunk who’s burrowing there, and I looked out to see our squirrels rolling it around and taking turns nibbling on it. So cute—wish I’d gotten a pic!

  8. Nice shadow keeping the little monster in line.

    You get the best squirrel in motion photos!

    • I can only imagine how much better they’d be if I had a decent camera! This is one of the few motion shots I’ve taken in the past few years that doesn’t look like an impressionist painting…
