Chubby Little Nut
I finally looked over and took a few pictures. Now that it got what it wanted, the squirrel happily continued its journey to the forest floor. The only problem was that my pictures of it were blurry, even though I didn't know that at the time. But anticipating such a problem, the squirrel stopped again at about the same place on his climb up the tree, and posed for one more picture.
I'm glad he did, because this one shot was the only one that came out okay. This chubby little nut had a prize this time. It seems that humans aren't the only ones who enjoy fast food. The acorn in his mouth was what he had gone down out of his tree for.
Down his tree. Stop for a few quick pictures. Grab the acorn. Back up the tree.One more picture. And up the tree to enjoy his food. Fast and delicious.
And it tastes better than a jumping spider.
