Happy little squirrel tail.

If you thought a dog’s tail wags a lot, squirrels are right up there with their mortal enemies when it comes to shaking a tailfeather.  While not always in motion, a squirrel’s tail can be a sight to behold when it does get going.  And in the right conditions, it can even create a rather natural blur like the tail on this fellow you see above.  It’s always cool when you can see the movement in a still picture…

This week’s Saturday Squirrel’s flapping in the breeze, and there ain’t nothing wrong with that!

Have a great weekend everyone!

    My cat hits me with his tail from time to time. That tail can be a formidable weapon.

    I love to watch them chatter and shake their tails. So expressive.

  3. Makes you wonder how that tail is so luxurious looking. Can’t be because of diet…and I’m not familiar with any brands of squirrel conditioner. How DO they get that?!

    Squirrels are OK as long as they stay out of MY tree.

  5. Those squirrel tails REALLY get active when the squirrel is sounding a warning to his/her fellow squirrels. The other thing I find cool is they all seem to have a slight variation in the alarm scream too!

    And a very bushy tail it is too. Great for cooling him down on a hot day, his own personal fan.

    Is it true that they have such big tails because they use them for balance when scurrying across narrow branches and hydro lines?

    The photo looks like it could be a painting, very hazy, rather evocative.
