Silly one...

Posted by
Judy aka L@dybug (Brooksville, FL, United States) on 21 February 2012 in Animal & Insect and Portfolio.

...and it's blurry from the screening, but it's the first time I've seen a squirrel stretch out on a chair!

SONY DSLR-A100 1/500 second F/5.6 ISO 250 420 mm (35mm equiv.)

January 1st is around the corner, along with an end to my daily posts, at least for now.
Dementia is so debilitating and Hubby needs more of my time.

This is so cute. This is just what our tame one used to do when he was waiting for us to come out to feed him. Happy ST.

@B. Thomas: We can't get anywhere near them; as soon as we open the porch door, they're GONE! Maybe it has something to do with Mike trying to scare them away? ;D

What an amazing capture,never mind the blur! First time for me too,since they are such timid creatures,they are usually scurrying around,not lounging like that! thanks for your thoughts and prayers,ian still had fever today but not as high.I had a fright yesterday.he is still lethargic but resuming a little of his bubbly self already!

@tyan: Glad you enjoyed my 'resting squirrel' ... but more importantly, I'm so happy that Ian is beginning to feel better. xo

He makes a cute ST subject. I like how well he's posing. I had one at my window this morning begging for some nuts.

@Slackwater Don: We don't get them coming very close; I guess they find enough food in the area. ;D

Cute! And I love the colors. He's thinking: "This doesn't feel much like a tree branch, but it's smooth and cool."

Dear, oh,dear! IT feels so much at home!!! I think even the squirrel is trying this position for the first time, maybe it liked the smooth feeling of the plastic....

@Japanalia: It really was cute; I'm glad I grabbed my camera! ;D
