Ha! You're right. I've seen our squirrels launch off of branches where I thought there was no hope of landing on anything - they always did okay.

Great photo! He's probably never had his picture taken from that angle before. :-)

I wonder if this one is related to the one from Armed and Crazy. You get such great shots of these little guys, I love them.

Rascals! It's hard to be annoyed at them even when they're scaling the bird feeder pole. Especially the younger ones in this cold weather. This one makes me smile--but probably not you?
