If you are a regular reader of this blog, you will know that i was frustrated in my attempt to get a photograph of a squirrel in a tree a couple of weeks ago and ended up posting a completely unremarkable picture of some branches and leaves instead. Not one to let well enough alone, this has been bothering me ever since. Today, o joy, i succeeded. So here at long last is a squirrel posing in the branches of a tree.
And now, in the interest of full disclosure, i must confess that under normal circumstances i detest squirrels. They tear up gardens, eat tomatoes just as they reach the point of being ripe enough to pick, and in general are an overpopulated nuisance, little better than rats, though with a superior wardrobe. But when they are peeking out from among the leaves high in a tree, then they're kind of cute.
