Many thanks dear friend for your sympathy about that disaster .

I love to see a gorgeous fluffy tail here and also it is not easy not to think ....

@farNaaz50: That kind of loss of life is horrible. It reinforces my daily gratitude to be alive and in good health, taking nothing for granted. Thanks for your visits and comments, too.

aw !! This is so cute...Looks like he loves to pose for you !!! Are you bribing him with a nut or juicy carrot ?

@Devi: We were on a little hike through a big park when this squirrel crossed our paths. I had no bribes to offer and STILL received this generous portrait opportunity. Thanks, Devi.

Steven from Chicagoland, United States

He looks like he's flexing his arm muscles like Arnold Schwarzenegger!! :-) I love how his tail trails along in front as if to have it on display. Cute capture!

@Irene: This squirrel had a sense of formality :)

k@ from Paris, France

Ha, the tail makes a kind of a dress in fur and whirling stuff around the lower part of the animal & image, another angle I enjoy and face to face with humor.

@k@: The Autumn squirrels are bolder, less camera shy... thanks for the wonderfully descriptive comment!
