Running squirrel


Before the barn cats came to our barn and multiply a lot we had 7 squirrels in our front yard and sometimes I see rabbits. When the barn cats dominated the entire property I could only see at least one but the squirrel won't stay long. The squirrel knew that cats are around and maybe to avoid bloody war the squirrel just go across the road and live there. This one I captured him trying to get away from "somebody" and you know who ^_^

He is running from something. They can be ferocious if they need to be.

Wow, what a great action shot. Great job.

Ralph said...

Perhaps the squirrel is taunting the resident kitties, figuring that he can climb out of harms way faster than a cat. A strategy full of danger, but to each squirrel his own...

Paula Scott said...

LOL! A squirrel on the run! Who'd a thought?!?
Ralph might have a good point; perhaps they are taunting the cat(s)!

Oh, I love the squirrel!! What a great capture! Yep, think Ralph may have a good point, I've seen them do my cats that way when I still had cats. Hope your weekend is going well! Enjoy!

Bounding and leaping,
O squirrel, are you keeping

What a great shadow shot..I would run too, knowing cats might be after me..Great how you caught the little squirrel in action.
Happy SSS.

He's running out of the shadows into the light. He would be smart to run back into the shadow where he is harder to see.

Patti said...

What a fun capture! I also think my hubby has a point..the squirrel is taunting the cats.

Thanks for stopping by today ;-)

Have a good week.

My squirrels love to tease Scratchy when she's in her pen, but when she prowls the hood, they know they're boundaries in Scratchy's world...or they're toast!!!

Beverley Baird said...

What a great shot! He's definitely on the run!

What a funny picture! We have TONS of squirls at my house...I live across from a park. Those squirls think they rule the roost...guess I'd better get some cats to shoo them away :)
Have a lovely week!
