This is the same squirrel from yesterday's post. Now it's done eating it's acorn, and it's on its way up the tree. I was happy that it stopped long enough to prove to me that these little forest ninjas can be just as cute as any other squirrel. It's much better than looking like a sinister little vampire bat.
More Rat TV! He doesn't really move very much in this short video, but his tail is blowing in the wind. He moves his head just a little bit, but most of the movement is just the shaking camera. Still, a video helps nature come to life.
I should have known when he looked in my direction that he was about to do something. Notice that in this picture the squirrel is a little blurry. That's actually a bit of motion blur because I caught him just as he was making his move to escape up the tree from the evil photographer.
Notice that he didn't squint before he moved.
Since I dedicated two days on this little guy, I thought of giving him a name like I've done for other squirrels. But I don't really know what name I could give to one of these forest ninjas, black squirrels. I wonder if he feels left out. I guess I'll never know.
That's all folks!
