While I don’t often associate a squirrel with grace and poise, I have to give them credit where it’s due. Their ability to scamper up trees, bound across lawns, and jump across branches requires a nimble dexterity that deserves respect.
This expectation of finesse also makes seeing a wet squirrel slowly stretch and struggle to reach something extra entertaining. I feel like I could almost hear him grunting as he slowly reached for branches. He eventually got what he was after, and then hunched up on a more stable branch to enjoy his tasty treat.
I captured this moment of dignity with my 70-200mm lens shooting at 1/100 and f6.3, with an ISO of 1000.
