A Little Squirrely
I guess it really isn't easy being a performing squirrel. I've heard rumors that this little guy does more than pose for pictures. He's a regular adventurer among squirrels. I guess he'll do just about anything to get attention. All the other squirrels really seem to love him because of what a big star he is.
He did this several times, moving off of a branch to go back down to look for acorns. Then he would come back up with his acorn and begin doing more poses and looking at me. I really wish I could show them all to you, but there's only so many days I can feature him here. Just this post today was very difficult for me to choose five photos.
my post from a few days ago I showed you a picture of him leaping up onto the branch; now here he is leaping back down. We're all lucky he was polite with his tail.
As I began to walk away I turned and asked him his name. He said, "Flynn, simply Flynn." Yup, in case you haven't already guessed, I can speak squirrel language. The translation always comes out sounding odd though. Picture it in your mind; a human disguised as a rat that talks to squirrels. Perfectly normal.
Tomorrow I'll wrap up this encounter with Flynn by giving you a little prequel. I'm going to tell you the story of how I first met him that day. See you then!
