I'm always amazed when I see these critters balance on a tree upside down. Defying gravity.

I didn't get quite so lose tho. I had no food on me ;)

Cheers

This one was a lucky grabshot. I was aiming at the bird feeder in the back yard when I sensed movement to my left, then spotted the squirrel crawling down a tree 15 feet away. I swung the lens toward him and tripped the shutter the instant before he panicked and departed the premises.
