I found this squirrel peacefully relaxing in the sun. It had no idea that I was there when I began taking my pictures. Even though I only have one of the squirrel standing there, I must have taken ten. It stood. It wandered. It scratched itself inappropriately. It stood some more.
Then it saw me and leaped for its tree! This squirrel was quick as a flash, but my camera was that much quicker! I caught it in mid-air. That's one good thing about being able to stand back and push my finger down on a button. My finger beats the animals at least half the time.
The squirrel only climbed up a few feet on its tree. It obviously didn't want to be on that particular tree. but where did it really want to go? I'm sure I would find out shortly. And so will you.
With that last thought, the squirrel leaped down from the tree once again and was off like a shot. It ran across the trail, and my camera followed. Think about that one for a moment; a camera chasing a squirrel.
And then the squirrel went airborne once again! It was headed for the forest and a perceived freedom. But really, how much real danger could there be from a guy in a rat suit holding a camera out in the middle of nowhere. Think about that one too.
The squirrel in it's hurry to flee inadvertently revealed something else to me. Something was lurking in the very trees that little squirrel ran into. You'll have to tune in tomorrow to find out just what it was. Will it be something exciting, like a Bigfoot? I doubt it.
