#22 – Relax And Eat

A single, rushed photo of a squirrel through the haze of a window would normally not be fodder for the upper half of a countdown like this where there are so many worthy entries.  But when that squirrel is doing something that you just haven’t seen before, and have not seen since… well, you get the right to call yourself the 22nd best Saturday Squirrel of All Time.

When I would change out the empty corncob on my backyard feeder, I just chuck the bare cob off to the side and let nature take its course with it.  So there’s always been a lot of these corncob skeletons laying around the yard, and this squirrel decided to try chewing on one of them.  But the fact that he rolled over on his back first and held the cob with both his arms and legs is just so wild that I had to make sure I got at least one picture of it before opening the window and unintentionally scaring him off.

No, squirrels do not normally eat this way!  But this cool customer earned has more than earned his spot in The Nest’s sciurine pantheon by being both hungry and laid back…
