    I pull into my driveway the other day, and there right before me this little fellow is hanging upside down, eating berries from my tree.

    I couldn't get out or he'd run away, and no matter how much I twisted and turned I couldn't get rid of that branch...

    no c&c needed. I know the pic ain't great, but wanted to post it from frustration :lmao:

    Thanks for your kind words, Rachel :blushing: When I saw him hanging upside down, I soooo wanted to do a bat-squirrel type shot.

    I like it. Scary squirrel should be the name. I say that because I was tearing the roof off my storage building a few years ago and uncovered the headquarters of the Squirrel Special Forces. After the fall from 15 feet and a very wounded pride i learned to respect the covert abilities of the rodent.

    :lmao::lmao: Fun story! Could have been worse, I suppose. Could have been racoons. They'll follow you down and chew on you!

    I rather like this, its got a voyeur feel to it, sometimes less is more and this shot shows the squirrel in a natural way doing what they do ( nice to see it not emptying a bird feeder !)
