The Evil Forest Watcher
I knew there was something there, but I only saw movement when I looked above. The leaves of the trees obscured what was sizing me up as I innocently looked to the trees for an exciting new adventure. But as I looked at the pictures when I got home I saw that it was a dark creature with long sharp claws. I could only imagine the razor sharp teeth it must have.
Just by looking at the picture above, I just knew that I must have narrowly escaped the evil grasp of this horrible beast. Or maybe it was a scout for the other terrible things that lurk in the dark forest. Was it part vampire? Would it come down and take my blood? Or would it just tear me limb from limb?
This just goes to show you that appearances are deceiving. The little squirrel had most likely just been watching to make sure I wasn't a threat. It was probably bracing itself to run away. The evil look was a look of fear. What does this tell us about other animals that we don't like the looks of? Or even other people?
