Look Ma! No paws!

Here’s an interesting photo that doesn’t look too jarring at first glance.  I mean, it almost looks like you can reach out and touch the squirrel.  But that’s just an illusion, as this is taking place a good 60 feet or so up in a tree, with your intrepid photographer standing almost directly below.  You wouldn’t catch me up there with a safety harness on, let alone standing on that branch reaching out over the edge at….. nothing.

In probably less than a second after this shot was taken, the squirrel made one of its signature leaps from one very high branch to another.  Seeing the squirrel not only maintain its balance, but keep its composure in the preparation for just another routine jump can be quite dizzying for us not-so-agile humans.  How is he not falling to a certain demise!?!?!?

Please do not attempt this stunt at home!  Our actor is a trained Saturday Squirrel professional…

Have a great weekend everyone!

    Gotta love a squirrel who does his own stunts, just like Tom Cruise!

  6. Not only have I seen them leap from one twiglet to another, I’ve seen them dive off the deck to the ground — a good 20 foot drop. Doesn’t even FAZE them. I think they might be beause they are close to weightless. You think?

    Yikes, it looks like he’s launching himself into midair!

  8. Makes you wonder how many ‘slippsies’ there are in squirrel-land?
